I think a great feature would be for roon to support cdart. I have this enabled when playing music from my Kodi server on the TV and the results a visually very cool. All you have to do is put the image file of the cd called cdart.png (there are whole sites devoted to cdart images) in the directory of the album and the software picks it up. When the music is playing a spinning disc of the actual CD shows, on my vinyl rips I just put in a record image and I have a spinning record.
Here are some examples of using cdart to show the spinning CD when playing music.
A better now playing screen of some sort is definitely needed. There is nothing special about Roon’s now playing screen. there should something that stands out from the common now playing screens from the various streaming services. It boring.
your right it doesn’t have to be cdart, cd.jpg or png would be just fine, it’s the spinning disc that I think is cool. cdart is just one that you can do a search on and find thousands of predone images of the actual CD.
Ssssshhhhhhhhhh, let them code I’m sure they’re busy with a few minor things like wrapping up RoonSpeXXXXX, incorporating MQA, designing a room correction system, and working through the hundreds of feature requests already put out there by the community…
