Show Cover Art When Casting to Chrome

Post by Poelicious » Thu Mar 26, 2020 1:33 pm

I have used PowerAmp for a few years but it started acting up on me and wouldn't refresh my MicroSD card. While it could be the card, Neutron was the best player I found that matched PowerAmp in terms of function and it doesn't hang up when refreshing. Convinced me enough to purchase it and so far so good.

One request: display cover art when casting to Chrome.

I am OCD about having quality cover art in high enough resolution so that it displays well when cast to a large screen. PowerAmp had this capability and it was nice to see the cover art and track info on the screen so I didn't have to keep looking at my phone.

Would love to see this function (and if it does exist already, where do I find the setting?)!

Hi all, I have just begun using Neutron and generally it works fine for me but I have one problem with it. When I cast mp3s from my ftp server to my Chromecast only audio is being casted; graphics (such as song titles or album arts) is not displayed on my Chromecast screen (it is visible on the phone screen though). What can I do about it?
I suggest you contact and ask whether this is a bug or a feature. Please tell us once you know !
