Hello,

quite frequently I have the issue that Picard is not finding a cover image for an album, however, the image exists in the Musicbrainz DB.

Example:

I tried to reload the album several times, but it always finds 0 image.

Additionally I have the fanart.tv plugin + API key enabled. My first thought was that it inferes, but disabling makes no change.

Thanks!

Do you have Picard set up do download images from Amazon? You can check in Picard’s options under Cover Art.

In other cases, the edit for adding the image to the Cover Art Archive might not have been voted in yet. Under Cover Art Archive in Picard’s settings you can untick the check box for only downloading approved images, allowing Picard to load those.

Yes, I have all cover sources activated. I have now also deactivated the option to download only approved pictures, but still…

The debug log gives that message when reloading http://musicbrainz.org/release/9cc6ee15-d62c-47d3-b6b4-4c07bd139927?tport=8000

#4

Which Picard version? Older versions (all released versions, I believe) don’t like Amazon HTTPS URLs.


#5

It’s version 1.3.2, the most recent, released version.


#6

You could try it with the latest test version. It has been very stable for me so far, but you might want to make a back up of the files you are trying to tag first.


#7

Thanks for this information. I’ll stick with the released version and wait for the new one to come to my distri. Now that I know what the problem is.
