Album Art Dimensions

Hi! I couldn't find anything related to this in the forums or online, so I figured I'd go ahead and post.

I'm really enjoying the current version of Winamp, and I especially like the Album Art features. However, I can't help but notice that all the album art is downloaded at relatively small dimensions that, when stretched in the player, clearly distort.

I was wondering:

• Where does Winamp download the Album Art from?

• Is it possible to configure it to download versions of Album Art with larger dimensions?

i believe it gets the art from AMG, not gracenote. thats based on my exp using winamp to get art.

it'll always maintain aspect ratio, but never be bigger than 200x200

u won't get it to do anything else. you'll have to find other ways.

where do you see it stretched in the player? i use bento and even large icon view is smaller than 200x200

BUG #1 = Winamp skips short tracks
Wish #1 = Multiple Column Sorting
Wish #2 = Add TCMP/Compilation editing

You can try AlbumArtDownloader XUI. It is free and it can download many different sizes.
