    Interesting application!
    But with my huge database it would take weeks to validate the scan results.

    Hello @ajs,

    long time no hear! :)

    During radio playback again and again images of other artists instead of the currently played artist are downloaded, especially on short artist names like "Albert", are downloaded.
    MusicBrainz ID tagging will help on downloaded media files, but music streams can't be tagged. :) Moreover, we don't know if and when your suggestion to implement MusicBrainz tags to MediaPortal will be done.
    Searching für MBIDs by artist and title names would solve this issue.
    Code:
    http://musicbrainz.org/ws/2/recording/?query=(artistname:"Marina" OR alias:"Marina And The Diamonds") AND recording:"Bubblegum Bitch"
    What do you think?

    The test results are really impressive! The processing of an artist with 61 Fanarts has been reduced from 3 min. 17 sec to 24 sec., of another artist with 77 Fanarts from 2 min. 14 sec. to 3 sec.
