I just realized that amarok doesn't show cover art if it is provided the recommended way, that is, using the VorbisComment tag METADATA_BLOCK_PICTURE instead of the (unofficial and deprecated) ALBUMART.
It seems that, after a first look at the source code, this METADATA_BLOCK_PICTURE tag *should* be supported.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a Ogg Vorbis or Opus file which provides a Cover front Picture with METADATA_BLOCK_PICTURE
There's no cover picture shown.
There should be a cover picture shown. With FLAC files, which also use this METADATA_BLOCK_PICTURE tag, it works (though they are no ogg files).
I've added review request #114406 which fixes this.

Fetch cover picture from METADATA_BLOCK_PICTURE tag.
With this patch, covers from Ogg files (for example Vorbis and Opus)
using the recommended METADATA_BLOCK_PICTURE tag will be displayed.
