    Upstream Art how too?

    I run a windows version and a linux version of Asset, have been for years, the only thing that escapes me is how to get upstream art to work.

    I would like my own version of upstream art for albumartist and composer. I get that it uses the first image found but I do not get how I can change that. There seems to be no folder upstreamartimages
    the folderstrucure is
    \Music\
    \Music\Bob Dylan\
    \Music\Bob Dylan\Bob Dylan - 1962 - Live at the Gaslight 1962
    \Music\Bob Dylan\Bob Dylan - 1963 - The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan
    etc..
    where do I place the Bob Dylan.png (as the artist image, not album art) file in this example?

    It's in the dBpoweramp settings (windows at least), in my case:

    C:\Documents and Settings\vilsen\Application Data\dBpoweramp\uMediaLibrary\AssetUserUpstreamIma ges

    Re: Upstream Art how too?

    There is 2 instances of asset one in a ubuntu vm and one on Windows server 2012R2
    The ubuntu one does not work.
    On both I've edited UpStreamArtFor.txt to make sure the upstream art is used for the tags I want:
    artist
    genre
    style
    composer
    conductor
    chorus
    soloists
    instrument
    period
    Album Artist
    album artist
    albumartist

    On both I've located the directory AssetUserUpstreamImages and but the "Bob Dylan.png" in that directory
    Both use the same all Flac well tagged library
    restarted and rebuild

    but asset presents upstream art on windows (Asset 6.2) but not on linux (Asset 6.6) so i think I know were to put them they seem to behave differently

    Linux is case sensitive, it could be you have to set:

    bob dylan.png

    or

    bobdylan.png

    Re: Upstream Art how too?

    OK I assumed you flattened the filenames because of that.
    The tag is ALBUM ARTIST all capitals stored in the face file is this assumption correct that I should thus use the ALBUM ARTIST tag in the UpStreamArtFor.txt the flac file says ALBUM ARTIST=Bob Dylan so if I use Bob Dylan It should be ok but no joy as far as upstream art goes. Should I use Bob Dylan.PNG, Bob Dylan.Png, Bob Dylan.png but none of these work. Is there a way to look at the actual data streams between asset, control point and the renderer?

    Try upper and lower case, also without the space.
