AlbumArtDownloader XUI - You know you want it...

(Preview Release)






AlexVallat:
I've been working on this for a while, and I think it is time to let people start playing with it. This is a rewrite of the Album Art Downloader code, using .NET Framework 3.0.

Features:
  • Dynamically resizeable thumbnails
  • Thumbnail information
  • Sort by Name, Size or Source
  • Filter results under or over a specified size, or by maximum results for each source
  • Substitution syntax path to save images
  • Local files search that matches save pattern
  • Enable or disable scripts from the command line
  • New strongly typed interface-based script model; write compiled scripts in any .net language
  • Backwards compatible with existing scripts
  • Backwards compatible with existing command line parameters, including old CoverDownloader parameters.
For the graphically-minded out there, although this app isn't skinnable, the UI is all created in XAML, so if you want to grab the source and start editing the UI, please feel free. It is under the XUI folder in the SVN Repository

Limitations:
This is a preview release, and as a rewrite, some functionality has not been ported across yet. Most notably, the browsers (both file and foobar) are not implemented yet. If you can't live without these, then you might prefer to wait until they are. If there is some other favourite feature you are missing, let me know, and it should make it across eventually.

Download:

Moderation: For latest version please see this thread.

AlbumArtDownloaderXUI-0.4.exe (Installer. Recommended)
AlbumArtDownloaderXUI-0.4.zip (zip archive for those who don't like installers)
.NET Framework 3.0 (required)

************** JIT Debugging **************
To enable just-in-time (JIT) debugging, the .config file for this
application or computer (machine.config) must have the
jitDebugging value set in the system.windows.forms section.
The application must also be compiled with debugging
enabled.

For example:

<configuration>
<system.windows.forms jitDebugging="true" />
</configuration>

When JIT debugging is enabled, any unhandled exception
will be sent to the JIT debugger registered on the computer
rather than be handled by this dialog box.
Clicking "Continue" apparently the search is performed (result figures for some scripts are incremented) but I see no images to select.

Working on XP SP2.

Alessandro

[Edit]: same happens loading only default scripts.

I also have the same problem. Thanks for continuing the development of my program though. Please note that under the terms of the license you must provide a copy of the source, and notification of its whereabouts. I'd suggest releasing it on sourceforge alongside the binaries.

* @ david_dl:
The source is available from sourceforge already, through the source control system. There is a web based interface to it too.

* @ mobyduck:
I think a temporary workaround for this is to disable the showing of existing image files, in the settings. If it is the same bug as I was seeing, I've got a fix ready to go for it, just waiting on developer access to the code repository to check it in.

Hi David,

I added the source as zip to the download. I thought it will be enough to have the source accessible via SVN.

First, let me say thank you for continuing the development of this fantastic tool!
At a first glance it seems to work ok and is an improvement over the existing version.
I noticed that when leaving the "Save To:" path empty it pops out an error when pressing "Add Task" instead of asking for input or, an even better solution, asking for the save path once the user actually wants to save something instead of just searching it.
The Error text is in German, but since you're from Berlin that shouldn't be a problem. tongue.gif

************** JIT-Debuggen **************
Um das JIT-Debuggen (Just-In-Time) zu aktivieren, muss in der
Konfigurationsdatei der Anwendung oder des Computers
(machine.config) der jitDebugging-Wert im Abschnitt system.windows.forms festgelegt werden.
Die Anwendung muss mit aktiviertem Debuggen kompiliert werden.

Zum Beispiel:

<configuration>
<system.windows.forms jitDebugging="true" />
</configuration>

Wenn das JIT-Debuggen aktiviert ist, werden alle nicht behandelten
Ausnahmen an den JIT-Debugger gesendet, der auf dem
Computer registriert ist, und nicht in diesem Dialogfeld behandelt.

Upon clicking the "continue" button of the error box the request gets fulfilled and it seems to query the scripts, however upon selecting the query in the queue window the error pops up again. The only solution is to manually delete it.

Only one question remains for me: will the old scripts work or will they have to be updated in order to be useable by your version of the program?

Other than that, good job on the size overlays and thanks for your efforts! wink.gif

The script interface changed a bit, as now the tool is passing the thumbnail size to the scripts and all thumbnails will be resized to the size chosen in the tool settings.

So does that mean the old scripts will or won't work?

Nice job with beta2, thanks!

Though I have not tested throughly yet, the previously reported problem is gone.

Two very minor things you might want to modify:

1) write the size also in a tooltip (sometimes it's hard to read)
2) expose all the info (name, version, creator) directly in the Script Manager page

Cheers.

Could someone make a brief post on how to use this?
Is there a way to do albums in batches? ie select my music folder and have it use the tags to figure out artist/albuma dn get some images?

If this is somewhere else, I apologize. I searched but didn't find this.

Hello
You need to use foo_run and add a task with the folloing command line :

"<Folder_Where_You_Install_AlbumArt>\AlbumArt.exe" "%artist%" "%album%" "$replace(%_path%,%_filename_ext%,)folder.jpg"

Could someone make a brief post on how to use this?
Is there a way to do albums in batches? ie select my music folder and have it use the tags to figure out artist/albuma dn get some images?

If this is somewhere else, I apologize. I searched but didn't find this.



You can use the Folder Browser to select you root music directory and it will check all files for tags to get Artist/Album

Sure, why not. FofR's service already does all the hard work, so the script for this is trivial: artists.trivialbeing.boo.

Amazing! I can't believe that it was that easy. Thanks Alex!

thanks for the further development of this helpful tool smile.gif

well, there's one thing that bothers me
AlbumArt doesnt start with this command
CODE
"D:\Player\Foobar\AlbumArtDownloader\AlbumArt.exe" "%album artist%" "%album%" "F:\Musik\Archiv\!Covers\%album artist% - %album%.jpg"


Actually the AlbumArt.exe task is active but it just fills up the memory to >100.000K and ~100% CPU Usage and the GUI never appears.
Never had that problem with the old coverdownloader.

Commands like
CODE
"D:\Player\Foobar\AlbumArtDownloader\AlbumArt.exe" "%album artist%" "%album%" "$replace(%path%,%filename_ext%,)Front.jpg"

are working

I had the same and found it's due to Show pictures in folder option. Depending on the folder content, the program may work or not.
Just run without parameters to have access to the settings and disable the feature.

@developers: if it's of any help, I'm using Vista - if you need more let us know!

Hi,

How many pictures do you have in that folder? smile.gif

I am going to add comandline switches to the application, so you can choose the functions at startup.

When using this command
CODE
"...." "%album artist%" "%album%" "F:\Musik\Archiv\!Covers\%album artist% - %album%.jpg"

I have 500 pics in that folder. But I tried that command with an empty folder and it didnt work, either.

another test:
I copied the 500 pics to an album folder an used this command
CODE
"..." "%album artist%" "%album%" "$replace(%path%,%filename_ext%,)Front.jpg"

...I get the same problems like before - GUI doesnt show up.
Then I deleted some pics bit by bit and when I had ~50 pics in the album folder the GUI finally appeared after some time (after searching for all the pics in the folder?)
When I had ~30 the GUI appeared faster
