    594‬ downloaded album thumbs with MusicBrainz as single MBID provider and all are correct, none is missing - fantastic! (y)
    Thank you very, very much for the new setting - really useful!

    Long time ago I digitized all my CDs. It's wonderful to see now all my album covers again with Fanart Handler and MediaPortal!
    Good old memories come up! :)

    What do you think about the idea to do a title + artist name search before the artist name search to make the MusicBrainz search even more safe?
    1. Search for the artist name and title
    Code:
    http://musicbrainz.org/ws/2/recording/?query=(artistname:"Marina" OR alias:"Marina And The Diamonds") AND recording:"Bubblegum Bitch"
    2. If a result is returned use the returned artist ID:
    1591509803583.png

    3. Else search for the artist name only (like now)

    Yes, I know.
    There are many different artists with the same name.
    With an additional artist - title search before the all artists search we would lower the risk for wrong artist MBIDs.
    Nevertheless, at the end the search results wouldn't be less because if the artist - title search wasn't successful the all artists search would return the same results as today.

    You forget about other providers that for me and others give more accurate results, unlike MuzicBrainz. Therefore, this provider has always been the last.

    Understood. But this is no reason to not improve the MusicBrainz search.
    And who knows, time has passed, MusicBrainz could have been improved and also the FH search algorithm has improved. Have you tested the MusicBrainz search recently?

    Other providers not return MBID for Artists when search Album info, and since the search is universal, he does not always know the album, but there is always an artist.

    Yes, some users prefer numerous search results with the risk of false-positives and other users like qualitative search results.
    I like the approach to give the users the choice, as with the duplicate sensitivity and the MBID search provider settings.
    And, if the additional music track title - artist name MBID search didn't return results, the pure artist search will return the same search results as today.

    Another question: Could you please add a confirmation dialog to the "Delete all Fanarts/thumbs" functions of the FH Configuration GUI?
    Twice I deleted all FH data because I accidentally clicked the wrong button. :mad: Luckily I have a daily backup! :)

    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.
