Since I don’t know where to start and I am looking for a bit of help, I’ll start at the beginning:
I am using a MacBook running macOS Big Sur version 11.2.3
I play my music using Elmedia Player version 7.17
Long ago I noticed that many of my music files contained erroneous tags including and most annoying Coverart tags. I would be playing a Guns N’ Roses song displaying an AC/DC front cover. In addition, I have long wished to convert all my .mp3 music files to .flac music files.
So I got busy and using first the application Switch version 9.14 I converted all mp3 to flac. No problems noted.
Then I ran all the flac files through Picard version 2.6.2 in order to fix the tags, particularly the embedded Coverart.
The result seems to now properly display the updated and proper cover in the Elmedia Player application. However, the cover icons in macOS have all been changed to a default music icon where before it displayed the songs front cover.
So I am wondering if there is a fix, or is this just the way macOS treats flac files.
Now I am kind of confused, and I realize that this Picard forum is not a macOS forum, but I just thought perhaps someone would know. I did check with Apple, but there is nothing online that answers this at my current macOS version.
