Music added before updating to latest version still has working cover art. Recently added music (flac) with both folder.jpg, and metadata albumart, doesn't get recognized anymore.

Also i tried resetting the tracker, explained here: https://together.jolla.com/question/30984/album-art-in-media-player-randomly-does-not-show/

Has generally worked for me for .ogg and .mp3 files. I generally use a cover.jpg file placed in each album's directory. I have however not been able to figure out why some directories with the cover.jpg file works and some don't. Not until now that is. I have not checked all of my collection, but there is a strong indication that it works when the cover.jpg file is not typed with a capital C (i.e. Cover.jpg) It certainly does not work with the capital C. Hope this helps. Haven't figured out how to persuade the tracker to revisit the cover.jpg files and generate the wanted abum-artist and -title md5sum files for me.

I don't know about folder.jpg (didn't know that was supposed to be a feature), but I may have some idea about the flac covers. I also noticed that some of my flac files was mssing cover art, but then I started to reformat and reindex the SD card with my library many times while troubleshooting this issue: https://together.jolla.com/question/50744/media-no-longer-recognising-album-info-after-update-10819

But the old .flac-files still show the artwork just fine, so I compared the metadata from my last working flac-file to the oldest non-working one, and lo and behold:

$ metaflac --list working_file.flac| grep vendor
vendor string: reference libFLAC 1.2.1 20070917

$ metaflac --list not_working_file.flac| grep vendor
vendor string: reference libFLAC 1.3.0 20130526

So I think this is an issue with flac files created with libflac 1.3.0. Could you check your files to confirm?
