Default DI Album Art in Windows

I use Tuner2 which displays the Album art of what is streaming. However, on Windows, I've only been able to find one player (Rarma Radio) which does this, but I really don't want to spend $39 to display album art.

I know Rarma Radio can do a lot more, but I simply don't need any of those features.

Anyone know of a player/plugin which will display the streaming artwork?

I tried the Orban plugin which is supposed to work (but is discontinued) but it doesn't seem to show the artwork at all.

Winamp doesnt, VLC, MPlayer Classic, WMP, Foobar... nothing.

I think that'd be mostly because a lot of the content is stripped of meta data before being broadcasted on Digitally Imported, so there is no album art to view.

actually the metadata is there in about 75% of the tracks, and DI does infact broadcast it.

Its just that the Windows players don't seem to look for it

Lately I've been keeping any album art intact in the tracks I've added to the channels I manage. Especially for Progressive and Minimal. But 6 months ago or so I would have stripped everything off, and in many cases there simply aren't any album art at all
