When user listens to a certain track from middle of an album X and then decides to make a play queue by adding random tracks, the audio player first finishes the whole album X and only after that goes to play queue.

This is very annoying, I guess most of the people start listening to a certain track (not remaining of an album) and then want to hear the next play-queue-added track. Spotify works this way and is becoming a standard. Please fix.

Also at least FLAC files aren't showing the artwork. Haven't tried mp3s.

I would suggest to add an option to the already existing "add to play queue": "add to play queue next" - this option would put the selected song after the one that is playing at that moment while "add to play queue" would put it to the end.

I confirm that FLAC art is missing. Can it be fixed?

mp3 tagged album art seems to be read correctly, also some files, such as "folder.jpg" and "cover.jpg" are added correctly. Missing FLAC art is annoying :/

Using Jolla as my main device now, I confirm that I am missing covers for FLAC albums even with latest available softw ( For info, those files are located in a micro SD formatted as BTRFS

I've been battling with this same issue for a bit now (see this question). I figure out that folder.jpg files in the album folder work as do embedded album art for .mp3 files.

Embedded album art however does not work for .m4a files. I am guessing that the tracker does not look at the correct tag in the file covr (for MP4) but instead just looks at APIC which is (one of) the album art tag(s) for MP3 files. Perhaps FLAC files have the same issue (don't have any so can't test).

I guess we just have to wait for an OS update on this...

Latest update doesn't seem to detect folder.jpg for flac anymore :/ Previously added covers work, but stuff that i added after updating to latest version won't show up album art.

if you convert your art to folder.jpg files, inside the album folders, the album art works.

I have added song information + covert art to each and every flac file's tag (when ripping cds with EAC) so adding extra artwork to folders isn't satisfactory solution.
