Do you have all the visualizations enabled? Maybe it just hasn't cycled
to AlbumArt yet. Under Music Settings > Player Settings >
Visualizations, type in AlbumArt. Also uncheck "Change Visualizer On
Each Song." Then you'll only be using AlbumArt.
I used the albumart program
(http://louhi.kempele.fi/~skyostil/projects/albumart/) to grab my album
cover images. It creates three files in each album directory -
folder.jpg, .folder.png, and .directory. The two images are identical,
just saved as different formats. The program says it creates
".folder.png and an Icon entry in .directory for Konqueror, etc." - I
believe the .jpg is what's used for AlbumArt in myth.
