Recommended Posts

Some of the artist pictures are missing. when I attempt to load a pic doesn't show after I refresh on some artists. Is their a criteria on photos?

The artist pictures are downloaded from fanart.tv. If a match can't be found, or there are no images on fanart.tv, then artist images won't show up there. You can manually browse for one though with the right-click menu.

Im not sure if this is actually working as intended Jason. As you can see in this image i am missing artist images for 2Pac and Adele, both pretty well known artists i think you will agree.

musicbox.thumb.png.ca66bb34077d08fe387f0ec9994b79f6.pngIf i go to fanart.tv and search those artists there is a lot of available images, including artist thumbs and artist backgrounds.

https://fanart.tv/artist/cc2c9c3c-b7bc-4b8b-84d8-4fbd8779e493/adele/

https://fanart.tv/artist/382f1005-e9ab-4684-afd4-0bdae4ee37f2/2pac/

So if the scraper is using the artist name which i assume it is then it should of found both 2Pac and Adele unless it has to do with upper case letters, the artist names on fanart.tv all seem to be in lower case in the URL when searched as you can see while my artist names in Musicbox start with a upper case as they should, could that be a issue at all?

I see. I'll take a look. Can you get the image to download if you right-click and select Download New Image?

Thanks Jason, no right clicking and downloading image does nothing at all on those artists.

Okay, thanks. Most likely there's something going wrong with the artist identification. In some cases, there are multiple artists and the wrong artist is getting picked, or something of that nature. Eventually I need to build in a way to select a specific artist from the list, which is probably the only way we'll be able to fix it.
