The fetchart plugin lists tracks with art work as as _no art found_

I have some tracks in my library the fetchart plugin lists as no art found, despite the fact these tracks have embedded art work?

How can I list only the files which really have no art work?

fetchart doesn’t try to get art that’s embedded in files; it looks on the filesystem for image files or fetches images from the Internet.

The beets database does not track whether files have images embedded in their tags. You could try using the embedart plugin… for example, beet extractart -o /dev/null might be a way to indirectly get an indication about which files have images embedded already.

Thanks Adrian. Makes sense.

I actually found an other way to check whether a file has already embedded art: via the info plugin.
