I need an alternative to Album Cover Finder to find images for the albums in my music collection. My music is all MP3's, and all are organized in this way:

Artist - Album/Artist - Album - Track # - Track Title.mp3

Now, I'd love to get the above mentioned Album Cover Finder, except it seems it only works with iTunes. The feature where it can find ALL the album cover art for your entire music collection in one step, at least. That would be EXTREMELY handy. Anyone know of another app like this?

Thanks

if you use winamp, then you can always search at its website for plugins...
e.g. http://www.winamp.com/plugins/browse.php?search=yes&filter=C&query=Album+Cover+Finder

Oh trust me.. I googled as well. Had I found what I'm looking for by Googling, this thread would never have been born. I found the second link, for example, by googling. That looks EXACTLY like what I'm looking for, except it seems it's only for Linux and I'm running Windows Sad

I'll see if I can find anything good from the first link though. Thanks.

EDIT:
Shit, nevermind! The guy DOES have a Windows version up of Album Cover Art Downloader! Sweetness. I have to check it out. Right now! I'll still read the FB2K thread. Looks good smiley -- Thank you for finding this, and for motivating me to recheck out Album Cover Art Downloader.

Album Cover Art Downloader seems to work pretty well - at least for well-known albums, anyway. It did come up with some "industrial tribute" for Metallica's Black Album though, heh.

yes, sometimes the album image search in media center also comes up with strange matches, it's amusing Wink

Btw it doesn't seem to handle international characters very well - when I click "Andersens Drømme", it stalls for a few seconds, and doesn't show the coverart... renamed to "Andersens Droemme" and it works perfectly.

Mediamonkey has a plugin for this, batch art finder (search the forums).
Seems to work well.

I was going to mention Album Cover Art Downloader too....

CD Art Display is like a cd case that displays the cover and song info, etc...you can set it to automatically download covers for you as you play songs. You will probably be better off using the latest beta...it's in the forum.
