@natalie You can upload music with cover art if you mux it like this with ffmpeg: ffmpeg -i <cover> -i <audio> -c:v copy -disposition:v attached_pic -c:a copy -y <output>.mp4
This is technically a video with 1 frame but the disposition makes seeking and playing not break. I think only Pleroma doesn't display the cover art as it should.
Only jpeg/png/bmp+aac/opus/mp3 accepted, so adjust the -c:v/-c:a as necessary.
@email@example.com yeah i should probably start doing that shouldn't i
i'm already running them through ffmpeg to convert from ALAC
