It's seemingly random. Honestly, it might be a video drive issue or a theme, I'll do some more testing. I don't see any related errors in the bug logs, which I can post, but they're long.

This is still happening in Build 2186. Sometimes the artist picture appears but if you scroll up and down it will change to the box with the broken link.
Is it related to only some specific artists? I cannot reproduce this at all. Could you catch it in debug log?

It does not always behave in the same way. Currently it is downloading pics at 1 per 1-2 seconds. And only for the artwork that is visible on screen.

What I dislike most of all is the screen full of blue boxes that gradually shows the pictures that were allready downloaded.

Do you have Lookup missing artwork in Metadata lookup options checked? For me it works, circa 1 image per 0.5s-1s as expected. If so, please wait for the next build, it will be released probably soon, and if the problem persists, catch it in debug log, thanks.

Just installed 2158.

Progress of lookups is getting far worse. Now artist artwork is only looked up if the artist is clicked first. So no automatic progress anymore.
This is not workable for larger libraries.

OK, I understand. Still, maybe it is possible to continue the lookup at a very low pace.

Great, thanks.

I would also prefer MM to keep searching missing artist artwork, not just the artists that are visible on the screen.
For larger collections it is annoying that you have to scroll manually through the whole alphabet.
Is this a deliberate choice? In that case I suggest you reconsider it.
It is deliberate choice, because services like Discogs, where most relevant images are found, have limitations of queries per IP per minute. So MM searches only images, which are needed for current display, to avoid ban of the whole IP. This is why the search is also quite slow, they allow only limited number of queries and more queries in a minute would lead to IP ban.

willyvds: thanks for additional info. I have downloaded PPTX with images, no need to upload again.

Another "difficult" one which gives a "broken link": "orchestre et choeurs du théâtre de la monnaie"

I'm not quite sure if I should resend the pictures...

But I am learning about the way MM finds the pictures. I think it is as follows.

The issue happens while I am still in the process of finding all artist artwork. For the artists that are already done, I don't see issues. So that makes me confident that in regular usage, artist artwork will work fine. So the problem I bring forward in this topic is related to the initial phase when you are collecting the artist artwork.

When MM encounters a picture which is somehow "difficult" is stops searching. If I then manually do something to make it progress, some of the pictures get wrong (sometimes). However, as far as I know, it is automatically corrected later.

For example: the first picture for the artist "Ora Sittner" is somehow "difficult".

Thanks, I will analyze it and try to find the problem.
