Hello, I've uploaded an "album" of about 15 mp3's on a single page complete with a png cover. I've been trying to share the playlist to a facebook page I manage, but can't get the album art to be represented as the thumbnail image in the share. It shows a spectogram image instead. I have tried re-deriving after deleting all the spectogram png files except the cover. Resharing produces the same result. Playlist was uploaded several weeks ago and the cover thumbnail was shown at first. The problem appeared after several days.

Page is at https://archive.org/details/micklestrube04

Can someone clue me in? Should the cover png be renamed to something specific? I don't have this problem with the 12 other albums I have uploaded.

Thanks for your time and help!

to make sure your cover was the image picked during the "item image" creation step, i switched your "cover.png" to the more specific format "Item Image".

so now that should share properly on FB and elsewhere.
