Default How do you get coverflow (pictureflow) feature?

I've been seeing videos of people who've put a coverflow onto their sansa e200 with rockbox. it's like the one on the ipod. It's really cool and i want to get it but i cant find out how. Does anyone know how to get it?
There's a video on youtube on someone with it :

Go plugins->demos->pictureflow.

You need to initialize the database (and obviously have valid album art for your music).

If you have your albums properly organized in folders (a folder for each), you can just drop a folder.jpg in each (many PC apps can do that automatically too).

I use "aa4mp3". It helps you quickly download, resize, name, and copy the files directly to the player. I just call my album art, "cover.bmp", or "cover.jpg" depending on what format I'm using.

i am currently looking into this picture flow thing. just d/l'd aa4mp3

now here is the thing. when i first used picflow only around ten albums showed up. correct artwork. i refreshed the database and more albums showed up (not sure if ALL of them did but a lot did) all correctly titled, but with no cover art. thing is the ten albums that showed art work at first still do, but those albums are now mistitled. IOW the U2 album art now goes with a different artist, etc. before it was the correct artwork for the correct album...

all my cover art shows up correctly other places. like in "now playing" etc

so...off i go to experiment with this aa4mp3 thing

great!

resolved the above issues and got it all working right. i like the feature but its kind of busy for me. navigating to the player controls is enough of a process, although i can get used it it. and i really don't care for the volume control set up. just too many steps to change the volume

so far as browsing music with the feature, its fine i suppose. but i like the direct approach of browsing by list. the album covers look great, and i like how you can zoom them to any size. but it just seems a busy way to get to and play my music. although visually very pleasing

idk how much i'll use it, but at least the next time some ipod person wants to say "well can your sansa do THIS" i can simply say 'why yes, yes it does'

That's my favorite thing about pictureflow. I've convinced iPod lovers that my Sansa is better than an iPod with that alone.
