I suspect a lack of modern https support in WINE will be the issue there. It's stuck in the dark ages and any applications that use windows APIs are going to fail. Only applications using 3rd party SSL libraries will work.

Please don't set d3d9.dll to native. Please do install DXVK instead. If there's a bug with DXVK, better report it.

Do the source scripts work for you though? I tried adding every script but getting search results only from Deezer, 45cat and ArkivMusic. Most sources stop searching after a second. AllCdCover, CoverLib and HMV Canada keep searching but don't find anything.
In case someone else is having the same problem, I was able to resolve it by installing this package:

Using dxvk-1.7 with NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-450.57, I get

After running

Code: [Select]
winetricks -q d3dcompiler_47


it runs, but displays mostly black and occasionally flashes the proper display or parts of it. It's not usable in this state, so I did

Code: [Select]
wine reg add "HKCU\\SOFTWARE\\Microsoft\\Avalon.Graphics" /v DisableHWAcceleration /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f

Which returns it to a usable state.  Native d3d works just fine.

The Fanart.tv script still appeals to be broken, which is very odd because I used to be able to make it work if I set it to search first and then clicked on the individual albums in the browser. But I'm on a new install and neither the original script or the fixed one seems to be working.

Hello
Is there a version of Album Art Downloader that will work with xp 32 bit that has net framework 3.5 on. I am having no luck with the latest and net framework 4.7.2.
Any help appreciated.
Thanks

AFAIK you gonna have to go for much earlier releases - prrhaps from the late noughties, if memory serves me well.

I don't know if, due to it still being an "aliveware", it doesn't meet any criteria at Roberto's rarewares.org, but there's definitely nothing in there.

Github sourceforge, perhaps?




Listen to the music, not the media it's on.

The last version for .net framework 3.5 was 1.03. I can't say whether it will work with Windows XP, but it might. If not, you'll just have to try earlier versions until you find one that works, I haven't used or tested with XP in a very long time.

1.03 is at https://sourceforge.net/projects/album-art/files/album-art-xui/AlbumArtDownloaderXUI-1.01.exe/download

All previous versions can be found at https://sourceforge.net/projects/album-art/files/album-art-xui/

Thanks Alex, 103 worked perfectly on xp.

There are app crushes when enabled Bandcamp script, verified it on ON/OFF states.

Also an update for qobuz.boo:

Code: [Select]
			// See if max size jpg is available
if CheckResponse(urlBase + "_org.jpg"):
fullSizeImageUrl = urlBase + "_org.jpg"
elif CheckResponse(urlBase + "_max.jpg"):
fullSizeImageUrl = urlBase + "_max.jpg"
else:
..........

Where can I submit the crushdumps?

Nobody is having problems downloading from fanart.tv right now? Is there somewhere I can see where fanart is failing? Like a log or something?

I am using the latest fanart script provided here and I believe implemented in v 1.05

Hello. I can't get results from the last fm ARTIST script. Is it working for anyone?

Re: Album Art Downloader XUI

Reply #3015
luezuve, I get fanart.tv results sporadically -- i think availability depends on the album.

Google Play Music (which was one of my favored sources) is no longer returning results for me, so we might need a new script for its pseudo-replacement, YouTube Music. Alex, if I find time I'll give that a shot this weekend.

Hi, new user here. Thanks for the great project.

I can't get Discogs to work. It churns and comes back with nothing for every single album. Doesn't Discogs require an authentication key? I know that I have to create one when I do this in the program Mp3Tag.

Amazon isn't working either, but that appears to be a known issue.

Thanks in advance for any tips!

John

Discogs 0.20 is working for me. If you give me the name of the album you were searching for I can try that. It does not require an authentication key.

Amazon I think are still doing the bot protection and captcha thing, so it won't work for the moment. Unless anyone else thinks they can get a script working for it.

Re: Album Art Downloader XUI

Hey!  I've been using this for a while now and it's been amazing especially for albums that are a bit rarer.  I do have a question though...

I have a process where I download the album covers to a folder, in this case, "C:\_Album Covers_" which is then sorted by file dimension as a folder name, then the image is saved by the "%artist% - %album%". 

The minimum dimension in options is set to 1000 px.

Example of the downloaded file:
Code: [Select]
C:\_Album Covers_\1200x1200\3 Doors Down - The Better Life (Deluxe Edition).jpg

After I get enough albums downloaded, I then batch process each image with Topaz Labs GigaPixel to denoise, clean, remove JPEG artifacts, and upscale the image using Ai (if you haven't tried it, do it - the results are impressive) to a 4000x4000 16-bit TIF.

I then batch process these large 16-bit TIF files using RIOT (Radical Image Compressor Tool) to downsize and compress each image to the following sizes:

1500 px JPG, Chroma Subsampling = 4:4:4, 5MB maximum - saved to "C:\_CD Collection_\_COVERS_\1500px"
1400 px JPG, Chroma Subsampling = 4:4:4, 500KB maximum - saved to "C:\_CD Collection_\_COVERS_\1400px"
600 px JPG, Chroma Subsampling = 4:4:4, 200KB maximum - saved to "C:\_CD Collection_\_COVERS_\600px"

Finally, I batch all those results using lossless JPG optimization using FileOptimizer

Is it a bit OCD?  Probably, but it's not bad when you're able to batch-process.  The steps I'm missing are below:

Now, what I'd like to do is tell Album Art Downloader to automatically search a pre-set local folder first, and if there is a matching file already, stop searching altogether and copy (not move) that file to the matching album folder, prompting to overwrite if a file with the same name already exists.  So, for example, in this case:

The finished album art is in the following pre-set local folder:

Code: [Select]
C:\_CD Collection_\_COVERS_\1400px\3 Doors Down - The Better Life (Deluxe Edition).jpg

Album Art Downloader sees there is a folder here:

Code: [Select]
C:\_CD Collection_\3 Doors Down - The Better Life (Deluxe Edition)\

Album Art Downloader copies the file:

Code: [Select]
C:\_CD Collection_\_COVERS_\1400px\3 Doors Down - The Better Life (Deluxe Edition).jpg

to:

Code: [Select]
C:\_CD Collection_\3 Doors Down - The Better Life (Deluxe Edition)\3 Doors Down - The Better Life (Deluxe Edition).jpg

NOW!  What would be ideal is if there was an option to copy the 1500px large image as the same filename, the 1400px optimized image as "cover.jpg", and the 600px image as "folder.jpg"

So:

Code: [Select]
C:\_CD Collection_\_COVERS_\1500px\3 Doors Down - The Better Life (Deluxe Edition).jpg

is copied to:

Code: [Select]
C:\_CD Collection_\3 Doors Down - The Better Life (Deluxe Edition)\3 Doors Down - The Better Life (Deluxe Edition).jpg

then,

Code: [Select]
C:\_CD Collection_\_COVERS_\1400px\3 Doors Down - The Better Life (Deluxe Edition).jpg

is copied to:

Code: [Select]
C:\_CD Collection_\3 Doors Down - The Better Life (Deluxe Edition)\cover.jpg

and finally,

Code: [Select]
C:\_CD Collection_\_COVERS_\1400px\3 Doors Down - The Better Life (Deluxe Edition).jpg

is copied to:

Code: [Select]
C:\_CD Collection_\3 Doors Down - The Better Life (Deluxe Edition)\folder.jpg

Of course, if there is already a tool that can do this, please let me know :)

Thanks as always for this incredibly helpful piece of software!

Aha! I found the issue with my Discogs searches. In search Options > Filter by Cover Types, I had only "Front" checked. Adding a check on "Unknown" fixes the issue: it seems that all Discogs art is characterized this way.

Thanks again for this great tool! Kind of amazing how much time this is saving me yet how much time it still takes across ~65k audio files, some fraction of which lack covers.

That might be possible. In the Sources list, find "Local Files", and click the ... button to expand the settings for it. In the Path to find images, you will want something like
Code: [Select]
C:\_CD Collection_\_COVERS_\1400px\%artist% - %album%.jpg
Also check "Search First" so that if there are any results from this source, it won't search other sources unless you click the Search button a second time.

You will still have to click the Save button in the search results to actually copy it to the correct destination, the same as you do for any other source.

For your additional behaviour of copying multiple files at different resolutions, I don't see any easy way to make that happen, sorry! For that sort of complexity you are probably looking at writing some sort of batch script yourself, I doubt there's any tool that happens to support exactly that workflow.
