Still No Album Art

Not that I dont like Winamp but I found something that I started enjoying more (AIMP). And its sad that I do. Ive always enjoyed Winamp. But, and for many this might sound petty I Want Album Art when songs play!!! For both internet music & CDs. After ALL these years. How many now? Ten? More? Still no album art. Wouldnt having album art be something that might attract more users? Maybe Im wrong but I would think so.

I just dont understand why other music players can have album art but Winamp cant? Cant they work out whatever problem it is that is keeping them from having it?

Winamp can display albumart embedded in the id3 tags of mp3 files but it no longer grabs albumart from the net to avoid copyright violations. Back when Winamp was owned by AOL, AOL paid royalties to the proprietors but the current owners no longer do.

Winamp can display both embedded and folder based art.

Wacup might be able to get art from the net.

BUG #1 = Winamp skips short tracks
