I'm testing minimum size options. Within rateyourmusic, I have set a minimum of 250x250 art size, however the script will not find such a cover art size (20 attempts). Accessing RYM with a browser, it will show a result list upon search, with very small arts, while clicking on the proper album within the results, it will open a bigger art, such as 300x300... is this by (script) design?

For example, the following request (taken from your script)

Code: Select all

http://rateyourmusic.com/httprequest?searchterm=%22Boogie%20with%20canned%20heat%22&type=l&page=1&action=Search&rym_ajax_req=1&request_token=
Will show a results page, with multiple hits.... clicking on each result, will show a full size album art.....

One bug, however: on the reustls window, windows-repaint actions, such as resize, drag, etc. will freeze the dialog. Need to brute force task kill MM...

If I remember correctly, RYM changed the website and I couldn't find a programmatic way of getting to the higher resolution images. I was going to remove the source, but thought I might as well leave it in, despite the fact that it can only access the smaller images now.

This is an IE9/MM bug which I thought the developers had fixed - are you on the latest version of MM?

Yes, 3.2.5.1306.
I see some people are using v4, but it may be a beta version? Will your scripts work with v4?

I am trying to use this add on but I can't install it. I try to move it to the scripts directory but I can't do that. I get an error message. Can you tell me what I'm doing wrong? I assume it is to go to the scripts sub-directory. Thanks for any help.

You need to double click MMIP files to install them.

I did that and it opens as a set of files but I double clicked on some of them to no avail. Is that MMIP file supposed to be somewhere in particular?

No, it could be anywhere. What do you mean by "it opens as a set of files"?

HI

I have downloaded your script and installed but I am unable to find a single image for any album I test on. All attempts result in [No results] being displayed.

Unlike others I have not received any Active-X issues.

I am also having problems. I've managed to get one or two results from RateYourAlbums but absolutely no results from Google or any of the other ones. I tried looking at the script and I can't find anything obvious. If I copy the URL that it appears to be using ("http://images.google.com/images?q=""&ma ... ame(album)") and fill in the blanks using %20 for spaces, the URL is valid. That would seem to suggest the problem occurs with parsing the HTML that Google sends back.

I'm using MediaMonkey 4 (4.0.0.1459) and I have IE9 installed (9.0.8112.16421). I didn't get any warnings about ActiveX until I managed to get a few (bad) results for one artist and clicked through to the next images.

Any help is greatly appreciated. I just used the wonderful Album Art Tagger script to blow away a bunch of low resolution album covers and I was hoping to use this to get good ones back.

Thanks!!!!

Please disregard my last post. Apparently I didn't look far enough back in the thread. I now have the modified script that uses Bing and I'm trying to work around the msinet.ocx issue. Thanks.

I found a solution that worked for me, even on Windows 7, without having to revert to XP Mode. It came from this thread:

http://www.mediamonkey.com/forum/viewto ... =2&t=23921

- Download: http://activex.microsoft.com/controls/vb6/msinet.cab
- Extract the 2 files
- Right click the msinet.inf file and choose intall.
- Done!

I still get warned about ActiveX the first time I switch images, but then it runs like a champ. Awesome! :D
