@jonas Thank you! This was the root of the issue and not related to Strawberry at all. For an unknown reason a QtGui update was not compiled with jpeg support. Weird!
Is there a way on this forum to mark a solution? Thanks again.
JPEG cover art does now show up in my collection, period. It doesn't show up when I view my collection, edit tags, manually open the cover art and set the cover to a .JPEG or .JPG file.
As far as I'm aware, this has to do with libjpeg-turbo, which is what I believe is used by QT and Strawberry. But I have no clue how to go about fixing this, there didn't seem to by any compile options that would help test this.
I am using libjpeg-turbo 2.1.3 if that matters.
Thanks for any help!
