    Embedding Cover Art To Music in iTunes
    Hi everyone.

    I want to know wheter adding a cover art to a music file in iTunes embeds the image to the music file or it just makes itunes show the cover art when you click on the music file?

    I mean do we see the same cover art when we use music players other than iTunes?

    I know it embeds it for Movies, so I assume the same applies for Music, but I could be wrong.
    I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .

    The answer is "it depends." MP4 files (AAC like the kind you get from iTunes) have a capacity for included album art and thus the art is embedded.

    MP3 files are audio and thus don't have this capacity, so iTunes will set up a little database to associate separate art with the correct music file.
