Add cover art for each medium

It would be nice if adding cover art to mediums would be possible.

As an example, each medium of ARIA the BOX has a different cover art.

Right now my tagger can only embed one cover for the whole discset, although each disc has a different character, a different kind of tracks (first is backing, second theme songs, third additional unreleased tracks) and a different cover.

Btw there’s also albums with one cover/image per track, for example:

CD box: one or many releases?
Can I select per-disc (or track) cover art in Picard?

This has been a known issue for years. AFAIK it’s mainly an issue with Picard; it’s possible to use the comment box to denote which cover belongs to what medium or so forth, but Picard is not able to process that information.


The ticket for tracking per-medium cover art is CAA-31:

I’m not sure there’s a ticket for tracking per-track cover art, but there is one requesting cover art on recordings (and not just releases), which I guess is kind of related:


Don’t know how well this would work, since some people will write “Disc n”, some “CD n”, some “Medium n” and maybe it’s just because the comments contain the words.


Cover art does have an order stored in musicbrainz.
If there is a second image marked as medium or front cover for example you could assume it belongs to the second medium and write it to the file.
