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 artwork and track information to a website (by FTP, HTTP, local file copy and AudioScrobbler.com).
Includes a sleep timer and can also speak track information.

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.
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.
