    Yes.



    My results so far:
    I have nearly 100% matches here with 340 well-known albums ;)
    Compared the fanart with the ones from htbackdrops: many files show the same picture, but the resolution of the new scraped fanart is mostly a lot better (therefore the file size is also much bigger ;))

    Yes it is compatible.
    I have just found out though that I don't think it works with fanarthandler v3. The latest version on MPEI appears to be v2.3 but there is a v3 version on the website and via forum which wants a slightly different file name. I have a version working locally here but I want to sort out a couple of other issues before releasing an update.

    Also just to point out that this code is experimental so it will take a lot of time to get it into a proper state (MusicInfoHandler took 18 months to get close to where I wanted it to be). I am actually planning a thumb management add-on to this to allow you to change artist / album / fanart thumbs inside of MP but that is the end game and likely to be 18 months away....

    Very quick update:

    Album art: 722 in database: 1294 scraped (big and little thumbs)
    Albumartist: 1302 (4003 artist tags) in database: 2227 scraped
    cdart: 568 scraped
    clearart: 741 scraped
    fanart: 2740 scraped

    Cannot go in detail right now, I'm off to work now.

    fanart.tv definitely has superior fanart/album art to any other site. Any image upload has to be approved by a moderator and they are very strict in terms of quality. If there was a tagger that had support for fanart.tv I would definitely batch replace or my embedded album covers with whatever has available from fanart.tv. PS. anyone know of a mp3 tagger that supports fanart.tv?

    Nice that it's compatible!!
    As far as FH v3, i've been running that for a few months already, and it's also not compatible (yet) with the Last.FM rework.

    Hi Mike, missing some xmls for the GUI of MusicInfoHandler.
    The old ones don´t work correct, and there is missing one called MusicInfoHandlerThumbs.xml ;)

    I have done some testing and as far as I can see artist and album info is working by pressing f9.
    That said only 700 of the 1200 artists on this dev machine had anything downloaded and of those a fair few have no bio.

    Someone mentioned they saw artist bio info in now playing but now when browsing? Was this the same artist? If so could I get a copy of your music database.

    The easiest way to see what artist / album data has been downloaded is to to use sqlite browser (just open your music database with this and go to browse data; from there you can choose the artistinfo / albuminfo tables from the drop down)

    I will upload a new version later which will work with fanart handler v3 and will also allow downloading details in other languages

    OK new version in first post with the option to change the language for artist and album info. I did a quick check by setting this to German and I think you may all be quite disappointed as to how well this is populated :(

    I added the option to default to English if your chosen language is not available.

    Other change is how fanart thumbs are named. You really should delete any thumbs downloaded by the previous version of this else you really will end up with lots and lots of duplicated fanart. The new names should be (in the main) compatible with the latest fanarthandler (which does not actually appear to be in MPEI)
