AlbumArt Downloader - where?
« on: November 20, 2007, 01:22:54 PM »
Does anybody know where Album Cover Art Downloader went off to?

It's written by Sami Kyöstilä (skyostil@kempele.fi), and used to be hosted at
http://www.kempele.f...il/projects/albumart , but hasn't been present there for a while - and I haven't been very successful in googling for it.

The screenshot I'm attaching doesn't do the program much justice, as I don't currently have my mysic collection available from my computer, but it's the program that has been the easist to use & has given me the best results so far...

Your request is confusing to me, because this UpToDate link to the program was the first answer I received: http://www.softpedia...Art-Downloader.shtml - but of course I did not google it, but >Maxthorn Multi-Searched< it.

@ f0dder; what may be causing this error message?
- I cannot use the program for its purpose!

No other program said anything; no "blocked"-message from Anti-spyware, anti-virus or firewall, or from Windows for that matter.

Why? Now you have Nina Persson everywhere! I wouldn't complain on such an amazing feat :)

Heh, weird - it worked wonders for me. But I probably did tweak how it recognizes parts of filenames etc.

@Curt: Check out Album Art Downloader instead. It's what I use, and it doesn't mess with your MP3s at all (it just searches for the covers and gives you the option to download them).

As for reparing the damage that's already done, use Mp3Tag and remove the embedded cover art where you need to.
