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"

You can modify the "search string" as you like.
You can make it any combination of %artist% and/or %title% and/or %album% or any other value.
Because there is only one search string passed to Google (together with other metavalues about size etc).

Please read the manual:

Unzip DisCoverArt.exe and custommsgbox.dll from DisCoverArt.zip to a permanent directory (f.i. %programfiles%\Mp3tag).
Register custommsgbox.dll (created by westconn1):
open a command prompt (cmd.exe as administrator) and type:
> cd %programfiles%\Mp3tag (directory where you unzipped custommsgbox.dll)
> regsvr32 custommsgbox.dll (a dialogbox will appear showing successful registration of the dll)

ps. opening a command prompt as administrator is done as follows:
type "cmd" in search, right-click "cmd.exe" or "command prompt" and select "Run as administrator"

Is there a way to make the downloaded jpg have a different file name? I would like to add tag %discnumber% to the front of the file name.

I changed the action to %discnumber% %artist% - %title%.jpg which seems correct when the script searches for the jpg, but the jpg still saves to %artist% - %title%.jpg

thanks

Hi,

Would it be possible for you to add a discogs_releaseid search query to this tool?

My tags all have a discogs_releaseid and I would like to be able to get all coverart for that particular release, rather than a much more broad artist + title search.

Thanks.

DisCoverArt is based on the Google image search api. I doubt that you will find correct coverart using the artist and discogs_releaseid. Could be. You have to try it in Google.

If that works you have to check in MP3Tag if there is a parameter like %discogsid, then you could create an action using that parameter.
Perhaps you stored your discogsid in another id3-variable, then you have to use that below.

fi. for 300x300:
In the menu, select "Tools/Options/Tools" and click on the button "New" (button with yellow star).
Name: "DisCoverArt Discogs 300x300 Artist+Title NoQuotes Manual"
Path: select the path where you unzipped DisCoverArt.exe (f.i. C:\Program Files\Mp3tag) and select DisCoverArt.exe
Parameter: "%artist%" "%<your discogsidvariable from mp3tag>%" -discomusic.com 0 1 300 300 jpg 20 0
Do not Select the checkbox "For all selected files" and click "Ok".

Good luck!
ps. you can also first try manually in a command prompt using this syntax: example:
discoverart "<artist>" "<discogsid>" all 1 0 300 300 jpg 10 1

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.


My music library is about 75% genre based, not album based. That means I have large folders of say, "80s rock" or "Disco", or "Heavy metal" with only the hits from those genres. I don't want all of these "singles" cluttering the list of albums, so they are set up like very large "various artist" albums. This means The SONG artist and SONG title what I need to search on to find matching cover-art.

I had over a decade's worth of MP3s that i had collected, but never bothered much with the album art for. Then I got a car that displays the artwork. Trying to resolve this was going to be a major chore without help. Every other search tool I've tried fails to return art because they want the album name to match, or try to use Album Artist. DiscOverArt worked beautifully. It usually finds the CD-Single artwork which gives each song a unique cover. If it doesn't exist it usually finds the album it belongs to.

Love this tool. Thanks so much for it!
