Hello Tim,

First of all I would like to thank you for your player!
Probably due to lack of knowledge, I'm not able to configure external MPD Client (Cantata, MPDroid) to show cover art.
Cover art is not embedded, but located in each album folder and has name "folder.jpg".
Please take a look into attached screenshot. Key setting is "Music folder".
Could you please push me toward right MPD client setup.

Kind regards,
Maybe a better question for the developers of these other players. I can provide support only for the integrated moOde WebUI.

Hello Tim, 

Thank you for reply!
Cantata, MPDroid, etc are not players, but MPD clients. In other words remote managers for Moode.

Nevertheless, I found a solution/workaround/crutch "for the integrated moOde WebUI".
It is necessary to add following lines into /etc/nginx/nginx.conf file:

server {

# Transmit cover art to MPD clients, e.g. Cantata, MPDroid
                        location /music/ {
                        root /var/lib/mpd/music;
                        rewrite /music/(.*) /$1 break;
                        try_files $uri $uri;

and Cantata settings for cover art retrieve will be:

http://A.B.C.D/music/   where A.B.C.D - your Moode IP address.
