Use the integrated "audioscrobbler" plugin which comes with a cover lookup for artists and albumshi hwahrmann,
thanks for the quick reply!
sorry, i think i was a bit unprecise. i rather meant if it is possible to automatically download folder.jpg (my mp3s have no embedded cover art at all). when i click the "get cover art" icon it seems to not only create a missing folder.jpg but also it embeds the coverart in the mp3 files (which i don't really want/need). basically i am looking for a simple way to automtically download missing folder.jpgs without touching the mp3 themselves.
This is most likely a bug of the skin you are currently using (which is it)?also, i was wondering about the picture quality/resolution of the automatically created folder.jpgs. after i hit the "get cover art" icon it asked me to choose a coverart if there were multiple matches. they seemed to have an acceptable resolution (500x500) when i selected them, but the automatically created folder.jpgs were only 200x200. did i miss something?
thanks and best regards,
The audioscrobbler plugin saves the cached thumbs directly where MP needs them. If you want to "update" your existing files - unselect the checkmark to search only missing thumbs.one more question: do the album thums in mp automatically get updated when audioscrobbler finds coverart?
i.e. is audioscrobbler coverart preferred over other coverart (e.g. from existing folder.jpg)?
Creation of a MusicDB inside MPTagThat is only meantfor non-MP users.nevermind, found the problem.
it seems that mptagthat has not created the audioscrobbler tables when i replaced my musicdb with the one created by mptagthat.
after taking a backup of my music db file all works fine now!
