Problem: Newbie Problems
#1
Hi folks
I'm new to all this, so its been a steep learning curve.
My set up is MoOde 6.5.2 running on a Pi4B.
It all seems to function as it should and I can play music from NAS or SDCARD library sources, through an external USB DAC.

My first problem is with the UI.
If I play a track off an album, it stops after each track.
How do I play a whole album in one go?

The second is to do with Album Art.
when albums are listed down the left column (Library) there are no thumb nails.
When a track is playing and I click the monitor symbol, right side of the main playing bar, I get the large version of the album art in the centre of the screen, so the AA is being picked up.
I have no additional images, just the embedded Flac images (I believe that's how it works).
Is there any way to display the album thumb nails for browsing?

My file structure is:
Music/Genre/Artist/Album/track apart from the Classical Genre, which is Music/Genre/Composer/Album/track.
Single tracks are stored in the Artist or Composer folders.
This file structure is copied onto the NAS and SDCARD from my laptop, where both Windows Media Player and Groove Music pic up the thumb nails for browsing albums and even for single files.

Am I missing something obvious in the MoOde set up?

First do Menu, Quick help and familiarize yourself with how things work.

"If I play a track off an album, it stops after each track.

Click the big cover in the lower right in Tag view. In Album view ether click the cover (Instant play) or click the ellipsis ... and then Show tracks, then click the big cover in the lower right.

The thumbnails are generated as part of Menu, Update library.

If you are not seeing thumbnails then Menu, Configure Library, Regenerate Album cover thumbnail cache
Click the View status button to monitor progress.

Hi Tim
I already did/tried all that you mentioned, apart from these things which meant nothing to me:

"Click the big cover in the lower right in Tag view. In Album view ether click the cover (Instant play) or click the ellipsis ... and then Show tracks, then click the big cover in the lower right."

Got me looking round though.
Ah......., I was in "Brows by folder" in the Library drop down menu, because the other options were greyed out, I presumed not available for selection.
"Album" that layout looks more like I expected.
It all works as you said, I just couldn't find a way in, seems fairly intuitive now that I'm in amongst it.

Thanks for that.
