Default I have counted the pixels (of the album art)

Not knowing in which size the album art is beeing displayed, I had resized it to 200x200 pixels and was very unhappy with the displayed images - it seems, that the players resizing algorithm produces very poor quality.

So what I did, was taking a picture of the screen (while album art in "full size" mode) and counting the pixels in Photoshop. The width are exact 120 pixels and since all sides are equal in length, the resolution of the displayed album art (in pseudo fullscreen mode) is

120x120 pixels.

The player produces black lines on the right and bottom of the image - these lines didn't went into the measured resolution.

The images resized to this resolution, to me, look MUCH better, more accurate and smooth, than album art in 200x200 pixels resolution.

I hope, this helps some ppl, that are unhappy with the quality of the displayed album art, as I was, before resizing it to the said resolution.
