Is there a script to remove invalid artwork tags?

Post by calonzo »

I have many songs where the artwork shows the default image. Trying to download the image isn't working for these songs.
If I edit the artwork property, I can see there is a small artwork file. If I delete it, then I can download the correct image. But there are a lot of them and it would take a long time to do this manually.

Is there a script that can delete artwork below a certain size?

MPG made an excellent addon called Fix Album Art which maybe could be extended to add that functionality :D https://www.mediamonkey.com/addons/brow ... album-art/

It would be good if the FilesToEdit sub-node got a new report named DeadArtLinks.
That way the OP could could do a Windows search over their collection with search criteria of *.jpg size:tiny
Then delete those files
Then use this proposed new sub-node to collect together all albums with dead art links, so that they could be attended to.

BTW the existing report "inconsistent Artwork" shows a lot of false positives.
I see many albums in that report where all tracks have no embedded art, and each track points to the same Folder.jpg file ... you can see this?

Workaround, until there is an MMW-integrated solution: MP3Tag. List the desired folders, add the cover dimensions (height, width, possibly file type) to the columns of the main view, it is also possible to set search filters there.

Then a batch deletion would be possible relatively quickly.
- MMW 5.0.4.2660 (non-portable, shared DB & files) on Windows 2016 # only essential addons # my 24/7 media server
- MMW 5.0.4.2660 (non-portable, shared DB & files) on Windows 10 # playing, testing skins & addons # my desktop app
- various MMW 5.xx (portable, local DB & a few media files) on Windows 10 & 11 # ripping CDs, testing new builds in alpha state, trying some scripting things
- MMA Pro (latest build) on Android 10 Phone and Android 11 Tab # WiFi Sync # playing

- MP3Tag, MP3Diags, MP3DirectCut, IrfanView

To add the feature properly, would require creating a settings window and to be honest, it's not something I really want to get into as the add-on meets my needs. If a bug is found, by all means, I will fix it.

Sorry...best of luck with your collection.
TIA
