Hello,
fist off I would like to point out how incredibly grateful I am for this little gem of software you developed. I does indeed save me countless hours that I would otherwise spend searching, saving, moving and renaming my covers. beer.gif

Now, I do run it in a separate folder and although I'm not quite capable of writing my own script, i did manage to copy and modify various versions of Google Image Search script tailored to search in a few specific sites, restricted to a few specific image constraints.

My question today is (and I really don't mean to be rude in any way here) :

Did the script for Google Image Search completely stopped working or was it just me here?? unsure.gif

I'm using windows 7 x64 English and I've tried both AAD v.0.46 and v.1.0, and both versions of the program with only the Google Image Script isolated. None of them work anymore, unfortunately.

I'm still looking into it, but I'm really curious if Google changed something yet again and the script stoped working; not just for me, but for everybody...

Thanks! smile.gif

P.S.: I'm not quite sure if my English is good enough (I do use a little bit of assistance from Google Translator) and I apologize for my mistakes...

Hi, thanks for your comments, and your English is just fine. Yes, Google images has stopped working, thanks for reporting it. I've uploaded a new version which should work with their latest changes: google.boo

Wow! What a really fast response time! Thank you so much!
I downloaded the script and looked at it and I could see that you probably had to put a lot of working into it to change and make it start working again. I sincerely appreciate the time you spent, my gratitudes to you! smile.gif

I noticed that the gbv switch had to be moved to =2 and I had a feeling that without control of JavaScript being on and off Google was automatically giving back the "new" blank pages where the images and links are added afterwards (unfortunately, I had not skills to make it work again). I saw that you had to employ a really complicated (for me) scheme to receive google's search response now, I was very intrigued. Still, I was able to modify the script to keep on grabbing my movie posters from many different sources using various versions of this plugin script.

Once again, thank you so much! Good job indeed!

P.S.: I feel almost ashamed of bringing this up, because it's not really a big deal but Deezer script here only gives 120x120px images, I don't know if they're blocking it somehow, but when I click the little "i", I can go to Firefox and view the image and modify the given 500x500px 80quality jpeg to display a 1500x1500px 99quality jpeg image whithout being blocked. I don't know if it's a geolocation thing blocking maybe? still, I wonder why I still can load the image just fine in Firefox...

Yeah, the gbv=1 (no-script) version of the results from google image search has stopped including the url to the full size image, which makes it useless now. I had to switch to the gbv=2 dynamic version, and redo the script to parse the information out of that.

Thanks for reporting the issue with Deezer. The Deezer script previously used to request an image at 0x0 size, which the server would interpret as meaning full size. However, that now simply returns the word "unauthorized", so I guess they blocked that. As you have found, you can still request a variety of sizes, but I haven't found a way to specify "full size" without knowing what that size should be. Experimentation has shown that sizes over 1400x1400 tend to return "unauthorized" too, so what I've done is upload a modified deezer.boo that requests a 1400x1400 image. It's not ideal, as if the native size is smaller than that, it's silly to have the server upscale it then send down the enlarged large image! Anyway, please let me know if you find images that don't work with that script, or examples of specific urls to images that are available larger (for experimentation), but at least it's an improvement on 120x120.

Hi Alex!
Thank you 1.000 times for this software! smile.gif
The GoogleImage script has not been replaced in the distribution, can we have it, please?
Many thanks

Spent some time over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend doing some music library maintenance...

Any chance we could get a feature that if ONLY local results are found to automatically close and continue to the next in the queue? (No reason to wait if I already have it)

And while I'm wishing, an option to beep or play a sound when done searching? (On each Album not the entire queue, for when I let it run but I'm not sitting in front of my PC)

Either way, I love AAD! Thanks for everything!

Hmm... those requests seem a bit specialist to me! It's the sort of thing that you might use some sort of automation or scripting system for, but I don't think I want to add them to the already cluttered set of options available, sorry.

You can still use google.com to search for album covers.
The urls to the images are in the html file.

example: https://google.com/search?q=rammstein sehnsucht album cover&tbm=isch

My machine (Win 7 64) appears to have upgraded to .Net 4.5. Since that, Album Art Downloader will not work. I have tried uninstalling .Net 4.5 and reverting to 3.5 but still no luck. I get this when I click AlbumArt.exe:

Can anybody enlighten me as to how I might get this thing up and running again?

Thanks very much.

Hello, Alex,
just came here to give you a little feedback about the Deezer plugin:

- to this day, most albums are giving good results (1400x1400 .png images), but a few are still giving 120x120;
- I made a copy of the Deezer plugin, adjusted for 1200x1200 99-quality jpeg images and when the 1400x1400 .png fails I have used this with great success.

An album example where the 1400 fails is: Ana Tijoux - La Bala.

It's not a big deal for me, but maybe it's a good information for you to have.

Cheers! smile.gif

Searching around a bit seems to indicate that this is likely due to a windows update: KB2670838 which broke a lot of things for a lot of people. Some advise that updating video drivers can solve the issue, and others recommend simply uninstalling that update.

Thanks, that is good to know. So, it seems there's no specific size that can be relied upon - I'll have to make the script fall back trying smaller sizes until it finds one, I suppose. I've uploaded an update which starts as 1400x1400 then drops the size by 200 each time the image isn't found, and checks again: deezer.boo

Ran into a very bizarre problem today. Been using AAD with Foobar for years and never have had an issue until today and it is ONLY with this one album. No other albums, not even from the same band, has given me a problem. Anyway, when i click on a song and choose to get cover, i instead a Album Art Downloader Command Line Perimeters window filled with a bunch of text. It looks like Notepad. Anyway. The text is this:

CODE
>"C:\Program Files\AlbumArtDownloader\albumart.exe" "Converge" "Downpour / Serial Killer 5" (Single)" "J:\Music\Converge\Downpour & Serial Killer [EP]\cover.jpg"

Album Art Downloader XUI version 1.0.0.0

**** Only the first three parameters may be un-named ****

Usage: albumart.exe [options]

Option names may be preceded by a / or a -
Options:

/artist      Artist to search for            (/artist "Artist Name")
              May be abbreviated to /ar       (/ar "Artist Name")
              Parameter name may be omitted
              if this is the first parameter  ("Artist Name")

/album       Album to search for             (/album "Album Name")
              May be abbreviated to /al       (/al "Album Name")
              Parameter name may be omitted
              if this is the second parameter ("Artist Name" "Album Name")

/path        Default path to save art as     (/path "\Art\Folder.jpg")
              May be abbreviated to /p        (/p "\Art\Folder.jpg")
              Parameter name may be omitted
              if this is the third parameter  ("Artist Name" "Album Name" "\Art\Folder.jpg")

              The following variables can be used in paths:
               %artist%     Artist searched for
               %album%      Album searched for
               %name%       Name of the image found
               %extension%  Default file extension for the image
               %type%       Type of image (front, back, inside, etc.)
               %source%     Name of the source where image was found
               %size%       Dimensions of the image
               %preset%     A custom preset string, chosen from the save button menu

/f           Provided for backwards          (/p "\Art" /f "Folder.jpg")
              compatibility only. When
              specified, the value is
              appended to the path.

/localImagesPath
              Path to search for local image  (/localImagesPath "\Art\Unsorted\**\*.jpg")
              files in. If not specified, the
              path to save art in is used.
              
              The following variables can be used in paths:
               %artist%     Artist searched for
               %album%      Album searched for
               *            Wildcard, matches any characters
               \**\         Subfolder search. Any folders will match
                             at this point in the path. For example

/autoclose   Closes the search window after  (/autoclose)
              saving. To avoid closing, use
              Save As.
              May be abbreviated to /ac
              
              Append "off" to disable closing (/autoclose off)

              Sets the sorting to use for the (/sort size-)
              results.
              May be abbreviated to /o        (/o size-)
              
              The first character may be - to
              indicate descending search, or

Ran into a very bizarre problem today. Been using AAD with Foobar for years and never have had an issue until today and it is ONLY with this one album. No other albums, not even from the same band, has given me a problem. Anyway, when i click on a song and choose to get cover, i instead a Album Art Downloader Command Line Perimeters window filled with a bunch of text. It looks like Notepad. Anyway. The text is this:

CODE
>"C:\Program Files\AlbumArtDownloader\albumart.exe" "Converge" "Downpour / Serial Killer 5" (Single)" "J:\Music\Converge\Downpour & Serial Killer [EP]\cover.jpg"

Looks like the album title has a " in it. To pass that on the command line, it would need to be escaped as \"

If it's just the one album, it's probably not worth doing anything about and just searching manually for it, but if you do want to fix it then the command line from Foobar needs to be changed to use "$replace(%album%,'"','\"')" instead of "%album%"

Good morning
I have a small problem I'm unable to solve myself.
Sorry if this is not the right place, I not found another...

The problem is that some folders are listed, while other are missing.
For example, look at the picture below: the folder E:\M\Branduardi\Studio Collection\CD1 is missed from the list, while only E:\M\Branduardi\Studio Collection\CD2 is listed (red arrow); furthermore, some other "CD1"/"CD2" folders are listed regularly (green arrows).




The folder exist! :


What I'm doing wrong?
Than you
Carlo

Albums are only listed once, so if your album has the CD number in the title (like "Coldplay" "Greatest Hits (CD1)" and "Greatest Hits (CD2)") it appears twice (as AAD thinks it's two different albums). Where the album doesn't have the CD number in the title (like the "Studio Collection" you mention) then it's just one album, so it only appears once.

So you aren't doing anything wrong!

Alex, thank you for the formatting above. How can I also get the search to ignore (Disc #)?

The code you suggested would work just fine if the disc number bit was always on the end. If you want to make it optional, though, you need it in it's own optional group:
CODE
\%artist%\%album%"(?: \(\d+\) \([\dA-F]+\))?(?: \(Disc \d+\))?"\*

Alex,

the code I am currently using is:
CODE
\%artist%\%album%"(?: \(\d+\))?(?: \(\d+\) \([\dA-F]+\))?(?: \(Disc \d+\))?"\*


how would I get that to ignore "various artists" when searching for albums in the "various artists" folder?

I'm not sure what you are trying to achieve here. What should the artist name be if not "various artists", then?

Hi Alex
thank you very much!
Now that I understand the underlying logic all become simpler!
Thank you smile.gif

when searching, I would like to ignore the "artist" when searching for a various artists album, and just search for the album title.

Hmm. I suppose you could try:
CODE
\"(?:various artists|(?<artist>[^\\/]+?))"\%album%"(?: \(\d+\))?(?: \(\d+\) \([\dA-F]+\))?(?: \(Disc \d+\))?"\*

as long as your various artists folder was always named exactly that.

Thanks, I'll give it a try.

Also, any reason the code does not seem to ignore (Disc X)?
