FS#12873 - Album art does not parse in ID3v2 tag

The ID3v2 tag in this file contains a fair amount of random metadata which seems to confuse Rockbox’s parser such that album art is not displayed. Extracting the album art using foobar2000, deleting the existing tag and then reattaching it fixes display of the embedded JPEG so the jpeg itself is fine.

Tested with today’s build (7c7fa36) on device (e200v1) and in sim.

See last comment. We don't support this file

This is interesting – at least from the filename this is the same file as in  FS#12870 , which showed album art fine on e200v1 sim for me after b6ddbc4.

I just recompiled the sim from current head and it definitely does not parse this file.

Strange. I’ll try to give it a closer look tomorrow.

Ok, had a short look at the file linked. Despite the filename it is different than the problematic file in  FS#12870 . Your file has the “unsynchronization” flag set. Rockbox does not support album art if this is set (clearly stated in the metadata code, see also my comment in FS#12795). Rewriting the tag in foobar2000 to clear this flag (need to force tag to be v2.3, as otherwise foobar wouldn’t rewrite it) makes its album art show up in Rockbox.
