ROpdebee's userscripts support thread

Hi! The enhanced art uploader currently (at least for vgmdb) takes the comment, uses the beginning to detect the type, and removes that string from the comment field. This would be useful for things that just say “Front” where the comment is unnecessary but for more complex comments it leaves stuff behind and doesn’t look as good/creates incomplete phrases like “Box Front (small)” to “Box (small)”, so I normally put those parts back in the comment. Maybe if the script only removed if the type was the entire comment that would be better, or an option for it.
Thanks for your scripts!


Would it be possible to add support for Juno Download and to ECAU? For cover art from Monstercat, you can just use this link and replace “MCEP270” with the catalog number from the release. If the catalog number doesn’t exist on the release you can also pull the catalog number from preexisting Monstercat links attached to the release eg. and where “MCEP270” is the catalog number. Additionally, Monstercat releases published after 11/30/2022 use the UPC/barcode of the release as their catalog numbers eg.

Another possible website for ECAU: . If it could extract covers from here like it can from itunes that would be great for physical CDs from japan. Example:

I have no idea if this would be possible but worth asking I suppose.

But that example mixes 3 different releases on the same page with only one cover (supposedly the download edition cover art, only):

  • Booth “another jacket” edition (I think it means alternate front cover)
  • Download edition
  • CD edition with additional sleeve (probably non-square front cover)

I think it’s two editions, limited edition with “another jacket” and another with a bonus exclusive mp3 download you get after ordering. I added the link to that release before I noticed that bonus, made a new release for it and removed that link but it’s still pending. So only one release for sale there currently.

A better example:

a feature idea for the Bandcamp importer… surely you know that Bandcamp pages can have a custom URL, I wonder how difficult it would be to automagically add both the custom and canonical * URLs to the imported release?

an example release with both links already added…

Apparently the custom redirects to the canonical.
To me it’s bogus, we should only keep the canonical URL.
Even without redirecting, if the same page has 2 URL, the main one should be kept, IMO.

I believe that’s a userscript doing that, probably one of murdos’? scratch that, it could be Firefox doing that… on Chrome, if you navigate to another page on the Bandcamp, it’ll redirect to the equivalent

I think it would be good to keep the custom URL, as unless you’ve got that userscript, that’s all you’d see…

that said, if we’re only keeping one, the canonical URL would be the one to keep

Oh actually it’s the canonical URL (the normal bandcamp URL) that redirects to the custom domain URL, FWIW.


If you are talking about this userscript, then you are asking in the wrong thread, by the way :wink:
Ropdebee’s ECAU userscript only adds import buttons for images (from Bandcamp), where it is impossible to detect custom Bandcamp URLs, not even MBS does that.

oh shoot, you right… I guess I looked at the wrong edit note from my last import, lol

looks like someone already got a ticket in for that tho…

Hi, me again, still alive. I managed to push a couple of ECAU updates this weekend with a fix for the Soundcloud client ID and a few new providers that were requested over the past few months. There’s also a new feature which I struggled to find a good summary for, but in short: it makes it possible to copy a portion of a webpage and paste it into the text box, and ECAU will then process the images (or, if there are no images, the links) from that page portion. Here’s a few videos to illustrate:

(the eBay example is a bit finicky and I cannot reproduce it anymore). It should make it more convenient to upload images from sites that aren’t supported as an ECAU provider.

I’m hoping to be able to dedicate some more time to maintaining the scripts, adding new features, and implementing new ideas (and actually editing releases again) in the future :crossed_fingers:


Hey, maybe ECAU could extract high res album art from Youtube Music!

Example album: beatles white album

If you just right click the image you get this small image:

But if you paste the link into maxurl, a web tool to find larger images on the web: Image Max URL

Then you get this:

It seems that all it does is to change the =w544-h544-l90-rj at the end to =s0?imgmax=0.

Image is pretty high res, its no PNG so it might be worse than iTunes but it might be nice to have? Thought I’d post just in case.


Another good provider to add to ECAU is Rakuten Books. I’ve managed to find decent-quality cover art on some releases there.

Some second hand shops may display generic concept arts (same for all editions), or user submitted photos (not flat scans).
The latter are very useful, though, but maybe not always for CAA, directly… :thinking: thinking…

Rakuten Books is separate from Rakuten’s marketplace site. The former doesn’t deal in secondhand goods.

Morning all,

I use this user script a lot: Enhanced Cover Art Uploads 2023.8.2

I now get this error message: Failed to fetch or enqueue images: HTTP error 403: Forbidden

Any one else having this problem?

Greets Tis

Yes, everyone probably because Discogs now requires a different key to obtain the images. We’ve already updated the key and it should work again in version 2023.11.30.


Thank you @kellnerd, have a nice day


Another question… Where can I update. I use Tampermonkey but I don’t get an update
