How to download album covers?

Postby titooo » Tue Jan 27, 2015 5:25 pm

Hi

I see thst some users have problems to download the album covers but I can't even find any option in settings to do it?
Where can I find that feature?

And is it possible to have covers for the artist view (I mean a picture of the artists)

Thank you

I'm not sure what you mean. DSub automatically downloads album art as you view it, and artist art is only supported on Subsonic 5.1 (and it is pulled from Last.FM). Why would someone try to manually download the album art?

Thanks for replying.

I thought thst Subsonic would try to automatically download from some websit the covers of those albums for which I don't have any cover. Was I wrong ?

Thanks

Yes. And even if it did that would have nothing to do with DSub...

You are right. I accidentally posted in Dsub sub forum instead of help sub forum

What a good way to introduce myself, hehhehe.

By the way, is there any place in settings where we can make the download covers feature work or its something done automatically by subsonic?

There is no feature in Subsonic to automatically download cover art. You can do it manually through the web interface though. When looking at a album under the cover art there should be two buttons: change and zoom. Click on change to get the interface to change album art.
