For the more technical
Im trying to implement support for ogg files in Jaikoz (these use VorbisComments). Unfortunately Vorbis Comments do not support binary data such as Cover Art. Three possible workareounds for this problem are:
1. Base64 the image and write it to the Comment File as a field such as ARTWORK field
2. Save cover art seperately in the same folder as the .ogg file
3. Multiplex the image as a seperate ogg bitstream.
Option 1 seems the best to me but for it to be useful I need to use a defacto standard or the only program that will be able to read the image will be Jaikoz. Does anybody currently use Ogg files with images in it, what software did you use to create it ?
Option 2 is easy enough to do, but very difficult to keep your artwork with your tags and before long they get seperated.
Option 3 is similar to Option 1 but much more difficult to implement and even more unlikely to be read by anything else, so Im pretty much discounting this option.
