    This is fantastic work. Is it possible to add vaules for a specific radio show in FanArtHandler? For example, the Swedish radio channel P3 has these shows:

    Morgonpasset
    PP3
    P3 Nyheter

    Would it be possible to add them manually in the backend and assign fanart to them? And whenever a song in announced as being played, FanArtHandler will use scraped images?

    I think so, but we must try.

    Where is the #Play.Current.Artist? If this PP3, try to put a picture in the folder "Thumbs\Skin FanArt\UserDef\music\" with the name of PP3 (any number).jpg

    Yes, as soon as the new value appear in the tag #Play.Current.Artist or #Play.Current.Album, the scraper will be looking for him the pictures, if it does not find it will try to download.

    Yeah same thing here. Takes about 15+ minutes. In the good old days it was under a minute.

    Now plug extends over the entire database of music, and tries to find MID, then find a picture on it on sites Fanart, htBakgrounds, Last.fm. Previously, it was less than one site.

    FanartHandler 4.0.0.59 (Beta):
    * Fixed updating of artists and albums at the start, now for anyone looking for pictures in the past two weeks, the search will not occur.
    * Reduced the capture database. A large transaction is broken into many small ones.
    * Optimized algorithm.

    As it turned out in the plugin there is a problem with the artists Beetles, and The Beetles etc. Ie If the database has any of these pictures is the second most likely will not, think how to fix. Or to redo half an algorithm or alter database again :(

    So, the plugin will scan based on date added to the database?
    I guess items skipped all still retry to get images in now playing?
    This would work good?
