Version: 2.4-GIT (using Devel)
Querying DBus with "qdbus org.kde.amarok /Player GetMetadata" only gives the low-res 135x135px cover (file:///home/ademmer/.kde4/share/apps/amarok/albumcovers/cache/135@3c214fcb4727e08846956b95b93cf425) for arturl whereas the hi-res 300x300px version is also available in ( file:///home/ademmer/.kde4/share/apps/amarok/albumcovers/cache/f42e070e3d3dc0a18128670393c9bbb0).
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add a MP3 track to your collection
2. Let Amarok fetch the hi-res cover
lo-res cover exposed over dbus
hi-res cover exposed over dbus
This also happens to me with Amarok 2.4.3. I noticed it because the Now Rocking plasmoid shows cover in a lower resolution than what is embedded in the file and set in Amarok. This causes the cover to be distorted and hazy, as can be expected from low-res images.
Yep, I noticed this bug first because NowRocking showed a lo-res image. I suspect the dbus behavior described above to be the root cause for this issue.
Setting status to confirmed.
In case it's relevant, this still occurs in 2.5.0

Construct the MPRIS1 arturl the same way as the MPRIS2 mpris:artUrl
Now we try to get the full size version before falling back to a reduced
version, and we encode the URL properly.
