Thread: Album Art is being re-sized and I don't want it to be

  1. #1

    Album Art is being re-sized and I don't want it to be

    I'm comparing the use of Asset UPNP with Serviio for serving my music.

    Most of my album art is 1000x1000 pixels held as folder.jpg within the relevant album folder. No art is embedded within my FLAC or Mp3 files.

    When I have the "Size Album Art" setting on "(no resize)", in my client devices, the album art is being re-sized to a smaller pixel size (which on testing is 250x250).

    When I have the "Size Album Art" setting on "400 x 400", in my client devices, the album art is being re-sized to 400x400 pixels.

    Why is Asset UPNP resizing my Album Art files, when I've set it to "(no resize)"? I want it to serve my full 1000x1000 album art images.

    Is this a bug, or is there some hidden setting that I've not found?

    In Serviio this doesn't happen, and I get the full 1000x1000 images served.

    Which platform is Asset running on?

    Spoon,

    Asset UPNP is running on Windows 10 64 Bit, version 1909.
    I'm running the Asset UPNP release 6.2.

    And I'm running Asset UPNP as a Service.

    You can type in that box, what happens if you type:

    1000 x 1000

    Ah.

    If the size is set to "No Resize":
    - when viewing a list of albums , those list album art pictures have been shrunk to 250x250 and if you select 'artwork' for each from the list it is 250x250
    - when you select an album, and then see the album art at the top left followed by the list of tracks, the album art has been shrunk to 250x250, and if you click on the image expands and is 250x250
    - when the album track is actually playing, and you open "Now Playing" the album art shown is not resized and is actually 1000x1000.

    So Asset UPnP is thumbnailing to 250x250 until you actually are in "Now Playing".

    Can I tweak this in a hidden setting?

    For comparison, if using Serviio, the album art is full size in all views.

    This is because if you browse 100 albums, then 100 albums with 1000x1000 could be 500KB each album. The way UPnP apps are supposed to work is not to use the browse art, but the art which is presented when playing, which is the correct size. You can force 1000x1000 by typing that in the resizer, but your browsing will be much slower.
