To display album cover-arts in yaMPC, you need:
A simple way to get cover-art JPEG images is searching in Internet and download them (for example, from MusicBrainz.)
Another way is making cover-art images embedded in music files using ripper or tag editor software.
For extracting embedded cover-arts from music files (FLAC, ALAC or AAC), I made a small program named 'getcover'.
To share the music directory on MPD 0.21 or later, Volumio 2.x or MoOde 4 or later:
If the URL field is blank, the menu (left picture) is displayed by tapping the URL field. If you use MPD 0.21 or later, Volumio 2.x or MoOde audio player, MPD/URL field is automatically filled by tapping one of the menu items. If you tap "MPD 0.21 or later", File Name field is also set to 'cover.jpg' automatically.
If you use other distribution, tap "Other (manual setting)" and refer to the below section "To share the music directory on Raspbian Pi OS".
If you do not need to display Cover-Art, tap Cancel (no cover-art).
Note: Volumio 2's Queue is not compatible with MPD's queue. Therefore, you cannot use Volumio 2 Web UI and yaMPC simultaneously. Make sure to clear Volumio 2's Queue (click trash icon at upper right in the Volumio Queue screen) before launching yaMPC. yaMPC will cause error if you use Volumio 2 Web UI simultaneously. Set "MPD Clients Volume Control" ON at Volumio's Volume Options if you want to control volume from yaMPC.
