[solved] Programatically finding CD-Album-Covers?

Recommended Posts

Hey there.

I'm (re-)ripping my 1k+ CDs in a better quality than I've done in the '90s, where 192k was good, because HD-space wasn't that cheap like today. 🙂

Does someone has knowledge or a idea how to programatically find CD-Album-Covers by Interpret and/or Albumname? Primarily I'm searching for a web source that has cover images.

This may not help, but you could look into:

@cstevensjr, @LostKobrakai, Thanks! 🙂

I've already downloaded MusicBrainz Picard, as it is OpenSource (Python), and I also already found a plugin source code that fetches covers via a fanart.tv, where one can register for a API-key. That seems to be pretty fine and I will test this out. And if it doesn't work out as expected, I will use the MusicBrainz Picard GUI-App.

Just throwing one more in there...just in case. Not open source but has served me well in the past, TagScanner:

Beyond tagging, renaming and moving based on custom rules makes this very powerful.

I use DBPowerAmp for ripping, there are a lot of advantages to using that, it handles cover art fetching very well, and the accurate rip is also very useful
