I am using SMPlayer with mpv. When I play audio files that have album / cover art, it is always displayed. I have tried to disable it by passing the option --audio-display=no to mpv, but it seems to have no effect. I believe that this is because SMPlayer switches on the available video stream right after starting playback. I am seeing this in mpv logs:
First the video is off as it should:
Video --vid=1 [P] (mjpeg) (+) Audio --aid=1 (mp3)
But right after start, the video is switched on:
INFO_TRACK_0: audio 1 '' '' yes INFO_TRACK_1: video 1 '' '' no Track switched: (+) Video --vid=1 [P] (mjpeg) (+) Audio --aid=1 (mp3)
I think SMPlayer should not switch the video stream on in this case. It would be even better if there was a direct option (checkbox in settings) for disabling album art.
