Can a single MP3 file include a Thumbnail of the album?


Hello,

Does a MP3 file includes a Thumbnail of the album?
are they more hidden data into a mp3, not just music?

Herewith an example:
http://archive.org/download/IronMaid...01-Prowler.mp3

Best regards,
X.

Yes, you can embed images in ID3v2 tags (and APE tags too I think).
Look into eyeD3:
Code:
eyeD3 --list-image-types

If you prefer a GUI approach, puddletag is worth looking at.
