So far so good, hopefully ID3 tag support for album art is on its way. Also a looking up with online music sites such as Rateyourmusic, Allmusic & Amazon as well.

heya law, great gadget. it used to work for me but now with this realease it doesnt. ive enable it in wmp and the readme is no help. i have also restarted the gadget and my pc but no use. please reply to hot8fishy@hotmail.co.uk

Law James said...

Thanks David. "Anon", It already supports Amazon and ID3 is not possible - if your player supports ID3 tags why does the gadget need to?

Any chance to make the auto-save album art (great feature!) save as folder.jpg?

Law James said...

I've put up a vote is this is something i wasn't really sure about.

yeah thanks law. i managed to get it working eventualy. had to re-install the gadget. oh by the way whats the score with the lyrics, i can never get them. you could have different lyrics servers built in and the the user can select one that is not overloaded. i use www.lyricsplugin.com it gets lyrics for wmp directly from lyricsfreak.com (i think) but just and idea. apart from that an ABSOLUTLEY AMAZING GADGET!

Law James said...

It's not a choice I made to use an unreliable site, it's the ONLY site I found with an API. Lyricsfreak doesn't appear to have a public one either. I asked before but nobody had any suggestions either.

You should make a http://www.hard.fm gadget, to play streaming Radio.

It would be great if you could add video compatibility with other players such as winamp.

Great job on the gadget by the way.

Tell you what, you make a donation and I'll do it.

hell, this has got to be THE greatest plugin, not just for Vista but for music players in general! At last i can fill in the blank albums with shiny album art! The Archos will at last be colourful!

Ansel said...

thanks for the great gadget. I've been looking for an iTunes gadget since January when I installed Vista. Yours is ABSOLUTELY the best one available. Now I really feel guilty about that whole David Beckham thing. :D

You see that error message you just typed? Well did you know its a message. I suggest you read what you just typed over, and over, and keep reading it until you actually read what the MESSAGE tells you to do. Good luck!

DJnikk said...

i'll delete it. don't know what to do
