OnDeck displays album artwork for the currently playing iTunes album, can upload the artwork and track information to an FTP or Web server, and AudioScrobbler. Supports embedded artwork and image files that are saved in the same album folders as your music files or in the Music Artwork Archive (ARTchive) folder. Features include:

  • Fast updates with minimal CPU usage (barely one tenth of a second of CPU time per track).
  • Displays album artwork in a neat resizable window with options for transparency and floating.
  • Customisable track information display including rating, genre and comments.
  • Upload album more...

What's New

  • bug fix: errors publishing information
  • tweak: published information is now encoded using UTF-8 (see docs)
  • bug fix: corrected a few other misbehaviours

Would be perfect if it could display the cover art in the visualizer window or iTunes album art window instead of having another window open.

All I'm after is a cover art plugin that can display album covers that are stored in the same folder as the music files (as it does in Windows). I'm not a fan of having to embed art in the header of every track

Does not save any preferences between launches, and since some options require a relaunch, many options are simply completely inaccessible. Also, the album art should appear when the song changes and then fade out after a few seconds.

Good idea, but it doesn't quite work. Despite a complete collection of embedded covers, this app isn't sure to show them.

Will keep an eye on this one, but not ready for prime time I'm afraid.

For those of you having problems with embedded artwork displaying: I don't use embedded artwork myself and this is a recent addition to OnDeck added at user request and may not therefore be as robust as hoped. It is possible that artwork from the iTunes store does not display, however I don't have access to this to verify (I'm not in the US) so if you folks can help by providing details of the tracks that you are having trouble with I will investigate the problem and try and improve embedded artwork support in the next version. Any other feedback and suggestions are also welcome - please email to byteATholocoreDOTcom

All of my music has the artwork embeded in the files. It's not hard to shift click them all and select get info, then drag the artwork in.

What I don't understand is why application after application proclaiming to "display iTunes" artwork absolutely refuses to grab the artwork from the damn music file. I don't want image files scattered all over my system, that's why ID3 tags support adding artwork.

Get with the program people.
