Again Google changed the format of the returned html code.
The problem is fixed in version 2.5.0.1.
You can download version 2.5.0.1 at http://bit.ly/1Q3dq9R under tools.

I think the same as Koala. I don't see the benefit of you script, because the built-in function of MP3Tag is better and easier to use. And I have the same cover for every track in a folder.

But I see potential for your script. First, it should not download a cover for each track, only for each album. Then, it should be possible to call it from the root folder of my music folder and then go to each folder recursively and if it finds an mp3 file in an folder, it should download the cover as %artist% - %album% and then skip the other mp3's in that folder and go to the next. Also, there should be a parameter that existing covers will not be overwritten.

In the next step I can make a mass operation with MP3tag to set these covers for all my tracks that have no cover by adding the cover column and sort by that column.

But it would be much better, if your tool set the cover directly in the MP3 file so that MP3tag is not necessary.

I have a library of about 52.000 title, now you know what kind of tool I need... :-)

Man I just realized that I posted this one level too high. It wa supposed to go to the "DisCoverArt thread here:



If one the admin's will take pity on me and move it to the correct thread I would be eternally grateful.

Sorry

Hello,

I have a couple of questions. On launching the multiple CMD search windows. Is it possible to configure those windows to run minimized? I am also curious as to how DCA determines which sites to search when using the "all" option? I'd like to create a custom list so I can just use the "all" option when doing a search. Not a huge deal but it would be cool.


Thanks, this is a cool tool.

This tool is very useful!

Although, as mentioned before, it would be more helpful if it saved the images directly to the mp3 files, so one doesn't have to run both the search via tools and then also the “save cover art” action. Also, (I don't know if possible, but) while the search results appear, it'd be cool if somehow the size/ratio of the picture is displayed in the window next to yes/no/cancel.

Cheers.

I don't understand your problem, you just need to change the parameters. While defining the tool in MP3Tag set the parameters to

"%artist%" "%album%" -discomusic.com 0 1 500 500 jpg 1 1

After executing the tool you will find a single image named artist - album.jpg in each album-folder.

Now set the formatstring for the cover-name in the action to

%artist% - %album%.jpg

Executing the action will add the cover-image to any song in the particular folder. Works fine in batch-mode.


Cheers, Zoidberg

Hi, thanks for providing the tool. I have found it to be quite useful.

It's it possible to edit the script to lookup catno or web address tags using the Discogs service?

The reason is that I am looking to download art for a thousand singles recorded from vinyl, and the art is typically not found in the initial 5 hits for artist and title - due to multiple geographic releases.

Good day,

I just stumbled upon this (seemingly) useful tool, but I can't seem to get it to fetch any image, even when executed manually from a command line for a single file, including what I presume are the working examples in the README.

Any chance Google once again changed their format?

And just to be sure - the tool, when executed from (for example) %programfiles%/mp3tag, will save the images in that same path, correct? Or will it default to %userprofile% or such? I did a hard-drive wide search for artist*.jpg and found nothing, but I figured I'd ask :-)

Thank you much!

Is it possible to use operators in part of the command line? Say, if I wanted to search for images with width and height '>1000'. With the small amount of testing I've done, it appears that if you use an operator in place of a number, it ignores the whole argument. Since this is not the correct way to do this, is there a correct way? Or is this just not possible with the current state of the program?

Also, Is there a way to add %album% as a search term? I imagine the search accuracy could be some much more with the addition of that argument.

Edit: I just thought about replacing %title% with %album% so that my command line appears as the following: ""%artist%" "%album%" all 1 1 1200 1200 jpg 20 0"

That seems to work, but I imagine it would be a lot better if a 3rd argument could be derived from mp3tag like this: ""%artist%" "%title%" "%album%" all 1 1 1200 1200 jpg 20 0"

Isn't it that it hardly ever happens that a single title exists without an album name? And that it is usually the album that holds the picture? I would think that the album name is the correct search criterion.
