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
If you would like to use nautilus-actions instead, use the values:
"coverchooser -g" and "--path %d/%f"

Change settings
Use the preferences at the gui.

Enjoy the new release and please tell us your experiance with this script. So I can improove it!

Hi lzap,

the homepage of Covera is saying "coming soon", so I think Covera is similar to CoverChooser (not the other way).
About the speed:
I haven't tried Covera but, of course, they will be faster because they trace only one query (at google).
But thank you for the link, I will look at this application when it is finished.

By the way, CoverChooser is written in Python/GTK

 Cover Chooser searches

Great program.

I was wondering if you were able to add a Wikipedia search yet?

And a search on the folder/file name. I've got lots of text files of books that I have been manually entering the 'fetch' parameters.

(Just a thought, add a drop-down box for a pre-filled fetch field. Like: Book, TV, Movie, Game....)

Still a very great progam.

BTW - Is there anything like it in the Windows World?

Hi,
a Wikipedia search will come in the near future. I've already started coding and testing the new module. The Wikipedia module will only search for Artist images (not album).

To verify the directory names (if no metadata is found) is a good idea. I will try to do that within the next release.

Your suggested dropdown-box sounds good. But I think, that this will take some more time for coding and changing all the current modules. I'm very busy this days, so you will not find this feature in the next release (perhaps in the next but one).

Thank you for your comment!

Thought I'd check to see if there have been any updates to your marvelous program.

BTW: It would be nice to see the current version number somewhere on the application window. (I had to fire up Synaptic to find the version.)

Again thanks for this tool!

 amazon problem

there seems to be problem with amazon module.
amazon isn't using 'personal key' anymore.

there are 'Access Key ID' and 'Secret Access Key' and they should be used together for auth.

Hi,
I don't have problems with the Amazon module. You will only need the "Access-Key".

For the Amazon module you will need a key, called "Access Key" in the email from Amazon. My key consists about 20 signs (letters and numbers).
Be sure to write:
KEYS Amazon:XXXXXXXXXX
into the /etc/coverchooser.conf file (no # at the start and the Xs replaced).
You can try to test the following url in your browser (replace the XXX...)

http://free.apisigning.com/onca/xml?Service=AWSECommerceService&Operation=ItemSearch&SearchIndex=Music&Artist=Fugazi&ResponseGroup=Images&Keywords=Repeater&AWSAccessKeyId=XXXXXXXXXXXXX

If you don't get a error message with registration informations, it should be the right key!

hope this works for you.

Is this Amazon key thing still an issue? I have followed the instructions and cannot get Amazon to behave. Or maybe it is working but CoverChooser never finds an Amazon image? Anyway, i have a "Access Key ID" that i am using (in /etc/coverchooser.conf). The url you've listed before to use to try out the access key does NOT work for me, but the key seems to otherwise be in order.

Second question - is there any way to run this from the command line specifying a dir and only to use amazon (i.e., no GUI/or need for GUI)?

btw, this app rocks.

Hi,

for me, the link is still working with my access-key. What exactly isn't working? Do you get an error-message? You could try a different browser because some browsers don't show xml-content.

I'm using the following key:
https://aws-portal.amazon.com/gp/aws/developer/account/index.html
--account --Security Credentials --Tab: Access Keys --Access Key ID

Currently I'm not sure if you needs a special signup for this key from here:
https://secure.roundsphere.com/amazonapisigning/signup.html

i run CoverChooser from the command line, and i get no error messages. this is the pertinent output from the script:

Module: 'Amazon' (album) loaded
no cover (Amazon)
fetchJob done (Amazon)

i do get covers from LastFM and one other module, though.

i test the key via Firefox and IE, to no avail.

i'm trying the https://secure.roundsphere.com method now...

thx,

Hey,

FYI, signing up for that roundsphere API account did the trick, so just having that Amazon key is not enough, it seems.

thx for the help!

To your second question:
Currently there is no way to run CoverChooser without the gui. But you could turn off all the not needed modules: Open the file /etc/coverchooser.conf and take a look at the parameters MODULE_ALBUM_ORDER and MODULE_ARTIST_ORDER

 Feature Request

This is awesome... Thanks

Will it be possible in future Versions to add the Artwork to the ID3-Tags?

Could you please implement a Checkbox to open and edit the Pic with e.g. Gimp before applying it?

Would be great and IMO useful.

Thumbs up :-)

Hello,
sorry, but I don't think that I will include this functionality. I don't want to manipulate your music files and I dont want to blow them up. Besides it is not simple to handle the different MP3-ID3-Tag versions without loosing information.
But I think there are other scripts in the Internet that will do this job very well for you.
