Description:

This is a concept that is functional.
I call ZCover. To me music like having ordered. All my CDs have passed to the computer for practicality. And I like to have them classified. Some time ago I programmed this little plugin. Now I've extended at the request of friends.

This is a concept that can compile and run. Foul complete to be at the desired level. Among things that I wonder if it should work:

[li]1. When I enable "ZCover" plugin must disable the plugin "folders". I wish we can mix the two features. If it is not a "ZCover" folder apply the default plugin Dolphin.[/li]

[li]2. When a "ZCover" folder files are displayed in a special view within Dolphin as a bookcase. (I know, is very typical but why not).[/li]

[li]3. Different styles of boxes by using themes. [/li]

[li]4. Metadata stored within the "ZCover" folder.[/li]

I would like to know your opinion of the concept and if you help me to complete the plugin 100%
Do not forget that it is a concept.
Instructions for compiling are in the README file.
I added the script that I use to compile and test that uses Checkinstall.

Thank you.

Remember to install "mediainfo".
For regenerate thumbnails, delete folders within ".thumbnails".

I just want to say I love you. Sorry for my bad English but this is what I was waiting for over years! I have some external disks with lots of movies and series and I put the cover manually in every folder because the preview. But this is better and automatic.

Ps: Do you have plans to add tv series and anime?

I was testing and I love it. Good job.

Just a suggestion for videos. I'll like to have the movie cover on folders just like the music cover does. I keep my movies into a folder because I'm not a English speaker so I need subtitles for almost all films, and sometimes I add some extra files like trailers, images and soundtracks. And this will be useful for tv series because you have folders for every series with lots of episodes inside.

We need to put some rules of use, video, series, music for the plugin to work. I think the suggestion and pointed a way to solve it. If you can think of a way for the series will be well accepted. I designed only for music for me and I see that there is interest. Thank You.

Be patient, I'm getting better and soon will add improvements search covers. But I take some time to upload this code because I have to switch to other jobs. This part is not multithreaded and I have to implement it.

I use only the music and I programmed to sort my collection, but I added the video at the request of friends. If there is interest I will add more. I sign make a package for easy installation.
