Re: [Banshee-List] BUG-Embedded album art not loading on successive songs

It might be noted that in some versions (at least mine) of Easytag, you
don't have the option to select what version gets written. In my version
of easytag, it only gives me the option of writing ID3v2 or ID3v1.x or
both. The dropdown I have only lets you set the unicode. However, the
tags that have album art in them seem to be working just fine here.
