How can I easily add album art to ogg files


Hi

Adding album art to mp3's is a no-brainer and easy as 123.

However, with ogg files it is not as easy. In fact, if done incorrectly, the ogg file will be unplayable. I did some research on this and some sites provided long scripts to handling the metadata of ogg files for adding images.

Before I try one of those scripts, maybe somebody here may know a way of adding album art to ogg files...preferably from the commandline.

Thanks

well, ogg is still the better codec, as you no doubt know.

did your research reveal this:
http://superuser.com/questions/16915...-line-in-linux
which ultimately leads to this:
http://wiki.xiph.org/VorbisComment#Cover_art

there's also this:
Quote:
Perl/CPAN module Ogg::Vorbis::Header::PurePerl - An object-oriented interface to Ogg Vorbis info and comments
if you need help with that, you must provide more info, esp. what you tried already.

I saw this link already http://superuser.com/questions/16915...-line-in-linux, the other link I didn't.

I will probably use that script on a test ogg file and see what happens. I do agree ogg is better than mp3 which is why I have chosen it. But I do like to have album art on my music files and mp3's makes this so easier than ogg.

I'll post back if the script works and if the test ogg file isn't screw up when using this script.

I just tested the script on a test ogg file and it work! I did get some message afterwards

01.jpg: No Exif data found in the file

Anyway, I played it and it showed the album art and it play the audio just fine.

Thanks
