It is a plugin for XMMS
It's main task is to display images : it scans the directory
containing the file you are playing, and displays them in its window.
It can be a copy of the cover of the
album, but why not putting some photos of penguins, so you can have
a nice and relaxing slideshow while listening your favourite music...
Some features :
It creates a personalised skin using the xmms-skin, so your display
still looks the way you like it.
You have buttons (play, pause, etc...) So if you want to minimize
xmms and just keep coverviewer, you have all control on the song!
There is also a right-click menu to control things.
You don't have covers, don't want to scan? No problem!
Using file information (tags) to get artist and album, CoverViewer can retrieve
for you from internet... All automatic! (function easilly configurable)
GDK-PIXBUF, they should be installed if you have XMMS :)
is optional, but if you want to use
the cover-autoretrieving functions, it will help!
