    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

    http://www.toiletduck.me.uk/artgrabber.html

    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,

    Duck.

    Thanks Duck
    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

    Did a 'strings' on the file, looks like it uses Amazon's CD search/info (formerly CDNOW's)

    through the wonders of a crappy java compiler.. you can easily decompile java code

    Code:
    try
                    {
                        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;
                        String inputLine;
                        for(int n = 1; (inputLine = in.readLine()) != null && n < 295; n++)
                        {
                            if(oldpercent != percent)
                            {
    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

    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.
