Title: XLD Ripper Flac
Post by: Charliethe1st on 2012-08-13 13:45:50
Hi There, Newbie to flac ripping needs help


When ripping cd on my macbook I do get the cd titles automatically  but no cover art.
XLD wants me to sign into amazon web service and open an account.

What for ??

Retrieving cover art with XLD has worked in the past. Did I change any preferences by error?

Latest XLD version Version 20120609 (141.0)  / MacbookPro / OSX 10.8

Thanks
Charlie

On the FreeDatabase some have album covers some don't. They are usually of very poor quality. It's best and easier if you use a site like this Album Art Exchange (http://www.albumartexchange.com) to grab your artwork.

Thanks but I would like to automatically load the album covers when ripping to flac.
I wonder if os 10.8 is the problem or it is just some settlings that i so have to change.

For anyone to be able even to attempt a guess at that, you would have to specify at what point “the past” ended and the apparent problem began…

I have been using XLD since the initial release and only had it retrieve artwork for me on very few occasions. There are many good automatic artwork grabbers for OS X i would suggest you try an alternative.

What are the grabbers? I just downloaded Metadatics but confused on how to use it.

OP, did you find the solution?
