    could the album art downloader be modified to get the album and artist from the ID3 tag instead of the structure? it could have the ablum name as a name for the JPG and it would make much more sense, I think.

    This is version .005

    Bugs Fixed & Additions
    -----------------
    3/16/04
    - i fixed an error on not finding some album art even though it was there.
    - i took away the dos console window from running
    - i added a popup error log
    - all program errors that cause a crash should be written to a log file now

    3/12/04 part 2
    - fixed the null image problem people were seeing. This was due to amazon listing the album but not having a small or large image for that album. I found some had the medium though.
    - I also added to the status bar when you are saving so you know when its done

    3/12/04
    - fixed a nasty bug in the amazon library where if it got a http error code it would die
    - added a log file called debug.txt to the dir so it'll show you which albums it could not find album are for
    - some minor bug fixes and speed tweaks.

    3/11/04
    -I got the bug that rgardjr pointed out. There was a problem with a library not being compiled in correctly.
    - I also added in two labels on the main app
    - the top one shows you the root dir
    - the second one shows you the status of the search. Only search for album art when its idle.


    Features
    -------------
    - auto looks up album art from amazon.com
    - has 2 types of directory structure
    - artist - album
    - artist
    - ablum

    - option to show all art by a artist to custom select album are

    known bugs!
    ------------------
    - its a bit laggy. I know this. Its a problem with amazon's web services.
    - closing the app will crash if a thread is still running

    How to run me
    -------------------
    - extract the .zip file to anyplace on your system and run art.exe
    - select the options and choose your directory structure type
    - Then load up mass load and select your root directory. MAKE SURE it selects into the dir and just don't highlight it.
    - Then wait. I have 400 albums and it takes like 30 minutes to finish. If you don't see anything just wait.. something will happen


    ToDo
    --------------------
    - try to make it faster finding an album. The problem is that I can only search by artist and then try to find the album name via what the search results are. So if you have beatles albums amazon has like 400 results.. so it'll take a long time to crawl through them all
    - id3 support. go into a dir and read the id3 tag on all of the files in the dir and if most of them have the same album name then that must be t he album.

    Let me know any features you want

    Can it be good to create a file per MP3 with the name of the mp3 +.jpg ?

    e.g.

    thisIsAnArtist-theAlbum-OneSong.mp3.jpg

    That would be usefull for using within the frodoplayer...
