Does anyone else have problems with this? Since the latest update, 3.1.6345, when TM kicks in, everything is ok, but when there is a song change it only shows the "No coverart" image. I use TM in full screen, and have tried several different xml files downloaded from the forum, all having the same problem.  Everything is working as expected, except from the coverart.  All images are stored in the mp3 files.

Thanks in advance.

Just updated to RC1. Now sometimes cover is also missing from "now playing" mode as well as theater mode. When hovering over (empty cover) pop up shows path to cover, and when db clicking empty cover, cover is shown in pop up. When the problem occurs, it is always just one or more songs from an album (seams random) that cover is missing from. Have tried manually updating covers, but the problem persists.

Update:
When I switch from the Now Playing tab to "All music" tab, the cover appears i NP tab again when I switch back to it.

The problem seems to have been fixed in tabs (track information), but persists in TM.

I am not able to reproduce any issues using your settings with theatre mode.
Unless others report the same i will leave it unsolved

Still the same problem with TM. Checked on two different laptops. When TM kicks in cover is loaded, but on song change the "no cover art" is loaded.  If I then abort (move mouse) and starts TM manually from the menu, the cover from playing song is loaded.   All covers are saved in id3.

Just an update on the problem, now using 3.1 RC 4.

Have tried different scenarios, and found that the problem only occurs when "now playing" is active when TM kicks in.  When TM activates, the cover i shown, but on song change it is not.  When a different tab is active(filter, music, last added etc), everything works as expected.

Cheers :)

Just an update on the problem, now using 3.1 RC 4.
Just curious as to why you tried RC4 when 3.1 Final is available? And has been since the 16th.
Download the latest MusicBee v3.4 patch from here.
Download the latest MusicBee v3.5 beta patch from here.
Unzip into your MusicBee directory and overwrite existing files.
