I found an unpleasant aspect in MusicBee: it supports album cover arts in SQUARE ONLY, and streches them to square if they are not, quite the same as the stupid Windows Media Player does.
So my point is - and I think it's easy to achieve - to ask for support for non-square album cover arts in MusicBee.
Thank you ;)

which version of musicbee are you using? i thought i fixed that quite a while ago! would you mind trying the 1.1 version - this is the latest link:

just copy the files to your musicbee program folder and replace the existing ones

Thank you for your fast reply, I was using MusicBee 1.0 RC2 because that was from "Download" section in your homepage.
I have just upgraded to version 1.1.3480 and I found the problem has been partially resolved.
Please check the screenshot: http://lpj31w.bay.livefilestore.com/y1pXENNb0lAh1QAVBGC1Uxon-LgYXVm9-tJbsoqPQ7W0buAz48X0X1s8r-z2jDYDf2a_ngukXnIO0_0q1FAFJ0k2PeiVam3Omso/musicbee.JPG

Besides, I live in China and China has blocked access to mediafire, I have to use Proxy to download the software. So I'm wondering if it's too much to ask for another download option such as the SkyDrive. Hope it won't bother, please ignore this if it does.

ok, i can see i need to also fix the stetching in the album view and will do so - I'm posting a 1.1 beta update later tonight.
just regarding skydrive, i had a quick look and seems ok so i can add that as a secondary choice

 :D All cover arts are displayed normally now! And another tiny issue resolved! (Can't drag and drop in Album Layout which I discovered later)
Thank you again for making skydrive an additional download option! :D :D
