I realise this may not be possible, but...

I have added some MP3s to a site I have made for a band. I was wondering - is it possible to put album art on the server with the MP3s, so Media Player will show it when the MP3 file is directly opened?

To get Windows Media Player to show the album art you'd have to add the art to the actual MP3 files. I don't know which software does this, but iTunes does it Smile (simply drag the art into the album art area in iTunes).

iTunes rocks.
Haven't used it in winbl0ws yet (I believe there is a version for winbl0ws), but the proper mac version is great

It worked. d/l'd itunes, attached the album art to the MP3's and uploaded them to the server, and now the album art appears when you open the MP3s in Media Player. Delightful.

Nope, I'm not interested, I find it quite funny actually that Apple bother advertising it on their UK homepage, because it's a useless piece of junk when you can't buy anything wtih it.

I guess they consider the other new features in 4.5 worthy of a mention. I believe that Europe will be able to buy throught their music store soon.

A similar thing happened with iPhoto, Apples image management program. People in the US could order prints/albums direct from the software from the outset - several years on and the UK has just been given the feature too...

I'm not really that bothered about being able to buy through iTunes anyway. I primarily use it as an MP3 player/music management tool.

Yes, apparently Apple are opening a UK iTunes store. (When, I know not.)
But I don't care about that, I just thinkg it's a particularly great piece of MP3/CD playing software. And I would possibly consider using it in windows instead of/as well as WinAmp.
