This would be great as I have a few missing images.Oct 26, 2011 at 8:48 am #1232
It could be nice, especially if the image or cover is set by drag’n'drop.
On the other hand, until now I avoided features the require the user to add “data” to the db. Right now you don’t have to backup your Musique data because it can be recreated at any time. If we start adding custom images, then you’ll have to backup your data.
I tend to think that people interested in adding custom data are a minority compared to those that just want the app to show them their library. So this kind of things get a lower priority.Oct 29, 2011 at 1:42 am #1253
In a corollary, I have many artists whose pictures simply do not show up, even though they have pages on last.fm. Manual upload could help until things like this stabilize. Though I suppose fixing the last.fm thing would be a better plan :D
For an example, DECO*27 and Daughtry. The latter used to show up, and now does not.Nov 12, 2011 at 7:47 am #1375
Using Minitunes v1.0 with Fedora 15:
I found that I can manually add the missing images (for Linux, this is in $HOME/.local/share/data/Flavio Tordini/Minitunes/albums), then select “Change collection folder…” so it gets rescanned.Nov 12, 2011 at 12:57 pm #1377
Or even better you can add photos on Last.fm and have the whole world use them.Nov 15, 2011 at 1:06 pm #1392
I have the same problem as Raven, there are some artists whose id3 is well filled and have their page on the last fm sit that don’t have pictures in Musique (ie Martina Topley Bird, General Elektriks, Medesky Martin & Wood and many others)Nov 16, 2011 at 3:34 am #1394
scusa se scrivo in italiano, mi dispiace per gli altri utenti che no capiranno.
Penso che l’opzione di aggiungere manualmente le immagini non sia una cattiva cosa.
Mi spiego: ci sono tanti artisti che non compaiono su last.fm, inoltre non è detto che un player debba riprodurre musica “commerciale”.
io ho un sacco di mp3 di amici che suonano cover o musica composta da loro, sarebbe carino poter avere anche per loro una immagine (magari pescata automaticamente nella cartella dove si trovano i file musicali come fa rhythmbox).
PS: non è il topic corretto ma ne approfitto: purtroppo il mio fedora 16 non mi fa partire musique : Process /usr/bin/musique was killed by signal 11 (SIGSEGV) e da terminale da segmentation fault coredump. Questo subito dopo che il programma ha creato una “music collection”. Se cancello il file in home ~/.local/eccetera/Flavio Tordini/musique/musique.db posso avviare di nuovo il programma, ma ricreando nuovamente la libreria crasherà ancora.
PSS: il mio parere conterà poco ma ci tengo a dirti che ritengo il tuo player il migliore in assoluto. GRAZIE!Dec 4, 2011 at 1:32 am #1570
i’ve been doing what paul suggest and it works perfect for artist with singles name, but for the one with composed names is hard to know what filename musique associates with them, in some cases names are in reverse while in anothers they are normal, expression like the and “and” does not appear and so it goes. I think this is may what caussing artist without photos even if they have last.fm pages. Is there anyway to know what name musique has associate for each artist?
