Artist Images Not Downloading


Recommended Posts

Guys,

This is an existing issue in a prior thread that has not been resolved. Many artist images are not downloading at all. They are not name mismatches; they are simple artist names like Beck, Adele, Fun, etc. that are not pulling any images down. I've deleted the artist and cache folder and relaunch the app. It redownloads only the same ones as before, leaving out many. I'd say it's missing about 40% of my collection.

For the amount of time this app has been in development, this shouldn't be a current issue. I'm open that it may be something in my setup, but it is downloading most correctly and has access to the folders, so that rules most things on my end out. My metadata is up to date and my naming conventions are consistent. 

Please help.

Thanks,

Anthony

Hi @NooNaN,

There is definitely room for improvement with the scraping of artist images from fanart.tv. I do see the same thing you are seeing with an artist like Adele.

I know this is known and it's on the list for improvement in a future build.

At the moment, you do have the option of adding your own artist images.
