WAV files, being raw PCM, don't support track tags. dbpoweramp is working around this for you, but what it does isn't portable to other programs or devices. FLAC, being lossless compression from the open source community - essentially a zip file for PCM - does
support track tags, yields file sizes about half the size of the originals - and being smaller, the resulting tracks travel over a network faster.
You can convert your WAVs to FLACs - I use Winamp for this but dbpoweramp might be able to do the same thing. Then use MP3tag
to embed the album art into all of the FLACs in an album's folder by navigating to that folder, highlighting all the FLACs with Control-A and right-click on the square box in the lower left corner of MP3tag that displays the art if present in a file. That will let you choose to add an album cover and give you a file browser to point to the one that dbpoweramp put into the folder (assuming it's a jpeg). Click on the disk icon (leftmost on the toolbar) and it will re-save all the tracks with the artwork embedded and displayable by any program that understands them, including Winamp and, of course, the Oppo's Now Playing screen.
