Album Art Grabber
I just written an Album Art Grabber in Java, intially as a but of practise as i intend to write an embedded car audio player for my final year project as part of my degree next year. As it came out reasonably well, and works i thought i might as well share with all :)
Its freeware, just dont go copying it and claiming it as yours :)
The webpage should tell you a bit more about it, and a ReadMe is included inside the .zip
Hope its of any use for people,
I'll d/l and give a try when I finished moving, but if it works good, you solve some of my "problems" - I do not want to download the files amually ;)
i ran it and it started giving me bull**** 1x1 white images
where does it source the album covers from?
Did a 'strings' on the file, looks like it uses Amazon's CD search/info (formerly CDNOW's)
Trying it now, hope I don't get the above white images.
through the wonders of a crappy java compiler.. you can easily decompile java code
i used amazon for my art grabber and its a nice system.. but for a art grabber it sucks.. mainly cause you can't include the album name in the search. So thats why it takes so long.. keep up the good work though
URL search = new URL("http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/search-handle-url/index=blended&field-keywords=" + Artist + "%20" + Album + "/");
BufferedReader in = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(search.openStream()));
time = 0.0F;
percent = 0;
oldpercent = 0;
for(int n = 1; (inputLine = in.readLine()) != null && n < 295; n++)
if(oldpercent != percent)
it fails if your music (like mine is) organized ...
$artist\$year - $album
meaning it doesn't recognize the album and doesn't download a picture
by the way, is there any way to tell if it's done? it's been running for 24 hours now
lol 24 hours? How many mp3s do you have? I have nearly 10k and the album art grabber I use takes less than an hour.
Which software do you use?
