    Thank you for this workaround!
    I can now finally start using Squeezebox again

    I can confirm that this also works with WiMP.

    A hint for others that want to use this workaround:
    I tried to refresh the album art only when the playing tittle changed (thru a Event) but HSTouch (on an iPad2) is buggy and I had to give it up.

    I landed on setting the picturecontrol showing the album art to refresh every 5 seconds (Video=true)

    Thanks for this!
    Works fine, I confirmed with My Music, Internet Radio, Pandora and Spotify Album Covers.

    I am using:
    http://<b>HS3 IP</b>/SqueezeBox/AlbumArtwork_<b>Your Squeezebox Player</b>.current.jpg

    That would be really nice.

    After HS3 it has not been possible to show album graphic in HSTouch from Squeezebox due to the added "/".

    Attached errors from:
    Spotify
    Radio
    WiMP
    respectively.

    While we wait for the fix, is its possible to get hold of this URL from a script so I can strip off the leading / myself ?

    Ok so with spotify I cannot get the album cover to show with the same settings I have for pandora.

    Names and album show up without issue and update real time, but cover art is not showing.

    That would be fantastic. Maybe as an option?
    Either way, this seems to be the most reliable of getting the Album cover onto HS Touch.

    I use a HS3 event to refresh the URL of the Album Cover Graphic on HS Touch Clients whenever the event occurs "Squeezebox is playing a new song"

    Let me add spotify and test. I right now only use squeezebox for pandora and nothing else. Its been solid.

    Now I have the same issue with the artwork not updating on iTunes DAAP plugin, but this one has been good.

    I am using android... what are you using?

    Funny, I had this working last night, ignoring the error on the HS Touch designer.
    This morning, I went to check to see if it worked on Spotify and Pandora and now is no longer working.

    I get the error below in the HS3 Log:

    Sep-04 8:18:16 AM Warning Image file does not exist, returning blank image: C:\Program Files\HomeSeer HS3\html\/http://xxx.x.x.xxx:9000/imageproxy/http%3A%2F%2Fwww.radioparadise.com%2Fgraphics%2Fcovers%2Fm%2 FB000003CMC.jpg/image.jpg

    I am finding HS3 HSTouch to be extremely buggy, which is not helping.

    For now will go back to letting HS2 Squeezebox plugin download the image and use that for the album cover.

    The art displays for me without issue. I do get that error message that the picture is missing in designer, but i ignore and move on. I have an image created that I just use the image of current title. Works flawless.

    This will display the current album cover:

    (Adjust IP and Player Name)

    but doesn't seem to update for the Internet Radio Streams, which is what I really want
    Thanks to some great support from the Squeezebox Forum, LMS 7.9 now supports the metadata to show the Album Art from streaming sources.

    We can now just use the link /music/current/cover.jpg to show the Album Art on HS Touch.

    Thanks for you help

    http://192.168.1.111:9000/index.html...=Squeeze_Touch

    This gives be the webpage for the LMS server

    Trying to figure out a way to get the current album on HS Touch.
    I got same error Moskus when trying to use the device status.
    The Music API is busted.
