Description:

CoverChooser is a small application, that searches albumart at the internet and downloads your choosen file.
Run CoverChooser and enjoy (Applications -> Accessoires -> CoverChooser).

By applying the script at a music-file (or a folder that contains music-files) the script will use the metadata to get the interpret/album-info. It saves the selected file into the selected folder. By applying on a folder which contains subfolders (.../interpret/Album), images of the artist will be fetched.
Metadata of the following filetypes will be automatically detected: mp3, ogg, flac, m4a, mpc

To use the Amazon webservice you will need a personally key. Get this key for free at http://aws.amazon.com/ and apply the key into the settings.

Recommended Installation (Debian/Ubuntu):
Run:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:panthora/coverchooser-ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install coverchooser

that's it

Manual installation (Debian/Ubuntu):
Download and install the deb package

Other Distros
Download the source tarball and read the readme file.

Run CoverChooser
Run coverchooser by choosing Applications -> Accessories -> CoverChooser.
To use the Nautilus-script: go to preferences and hit on the Nautilus script button to add the Starter for nautilus-scripts.

Using nautilus-actions instead of nautilus-script

this is also not a bug.
on applying an image, the image will be stored in the choosen folder, and the script will exit.
If you want not to quit the script automatically, change the settings for QUIT_ON_APPLY in the conf file (/etc/coverchooser.conf).

Or is the picture not stored into the folder?

/etc/coverchooser.conf

good luck!

Is there a way you could make a field show the resolution of each result, so that the user can apply whichever one is biggest. Also, what exactly the "force square" option do? Does it actually change the image or just not allow images that aren't square?

to print down the resolution of each picture is actual not possible. But I can include it in the next version, if you want so.

the "force square" option means, that the image will be scaled to a square, even when the original size is not a square. So you will get "stretched" images when the original is not a square.

I think showing the resolution of each (perhaps in a tooltip?) would make it easier to choose between the various sources. I would love to have this in a future version.

hey, this is the best thing i've found for getting album art hands down.

i have a lot of missing art and made some bash scripts to go through my music folders by artists and by album, i'm by no means an expert but some functionality like this would be awesome.

is there a way to remove data in the strings the program uses?
I have mp3 info like "ARTIST" - "ALBUM [cd1]"

i would love a way to tell this program to avoid the part of the string in brackets so i don't have to edit the album field manually.

#!/bin/bash

[ -f "$FOLDERS/folder.png" ] && convert "$FOLDERS/folder.png" "$FOLDERS/folder.jpg"
[ -f "$FOLDERS/Folder.png" ] && convert "$FOLDERS/Folder.png" "$FOLDERS/folder.jpg"
[ -f "$FOLDERS/folder.png" ] rm "$FOLDERS/folder.png" & echo "folder.png replaced by folder.jpg"
[ -f "$FOLDERS/Folder.jpg" ] && mv "$FOLDERS/Folder.jpg" "$FOLDERS/folder.jpg"
[ -f "$FOLDERS/folder.jpg" ] && echo "folder.jpg exists" || CoverChooser $FOLDERS
done

Hello stabbyjones,
the CoverChooser is using the ID3-Tags from your MP3s. I think the very best solution would be, to correct your id3-tags at first (there is an extra tag for cd-number). You could write a script, that do this for you :-)

OK, here I give you the solution you want:
Open the CoverChooser program code (sudo gedit /usr/share/CoverChooser/CoverChooser)
Now change the lines 175-177
Old
Quote:
if self.artist != '':
>print 'Metadata: artist = '+self.artist
>print 'Metadata: album = '+self.album

New
Quote:
if self.artist != '':
>if self.album != '':
>>self.album = self.album.replace('[cd1]', '')
>>self.album = self.album.replace('[cd2]', '')
>>self.album = self.album.replace('[cd3]', '')
>>self.album = self.album.strip()
>>print 'CD-No. from the albuminfo deleted'
>print 'Metadata: artist = '+self.artist
>print 'Metadata: album = '+self.album

Now save the file and try if it works. I haven't tested this code but it should do the stuff you want.

Hint: This is a Python code. So you need the correct indent! I described the indent by '>'.

Im no bash expert, but I think there are some bugs in your script:
1. Don't forget to remove "Folder.png"
2. In the albums-script the first two lines within the DO-LOOP are the same

I hope this works for you!

I finally went through all my music again and got my tags right so i went back to the original version.

Is there a way to set a default choice?

so i just set everything to run in my script and pick last.fm? then i can run it again without the default choice and pick my own?

 Window Size

This is a great Nautilus Plugin.

1. The CoverChooser window exceeds the height of my screen (EeePC netbook 1024x768). I need to manually move it to see the bottom. Plesae take out an inch or so in height.
2. Would be nice to search WiKiPedia for images also. Often they have pictures of artists that are not CD covers which would be great for the artists root folder or for movies.
3. I also use the cover-thumbnailer_0.7_all.deb Nautilus plug-in that automatically creates a folder thumbnail from a folder.jpg file inside. With your program and the thumbnailer it is so easy to choose and apply art as CD folders.

Very nice, useful and easy to use. THANX.

Hi,
According to the Window size, you are able to change this by yourself. There is a config-file at:
/etc/coverchooser.conf
just open that file in an texteditor (you need sudo rights, type in a terminal: sugo gedit /etc/coverchooser.conf) and change the values at the "Skin" area. On customizing a line, the # sign must be removed.
Try out the following values:
SIZE_IMAGE 100
SIZE_MARGIN 18
YPOS_LABEL 6
YPOS_IMAGE 24
YPOS_BUTTON 130
YPOS_ROW2 170
YPOS_ROW3 340

I will try to write a module for the Wikipedia Artist images. Please be patience.

Your settings worked perfectly. THANX for the quick reply.

Have you looked at the thumbnailer I mentioned?

Oh yes, cover-thumbnailer is a great tool. Im using it on my desktop pc. At the netbook it is a little bit to slow on opening some folders.
Nice that I could help you.
