So, i wiped XBMC, just for fun (had to rescrape anyway for banners).

Setting up again went ok for the most part. Except i am not getting fanart backgrounds in music library.
I know it worked an hour ago, so code is there. But is the Universal artist scraper supposed to get these?

If not, can i add whatever add-on that is needed for this directly to the skin?
I don't want users to have grab an add-on for this. And will it still update if added to the skin?

What do you mean code is there ?

What if you try to get fanart via artist info ? Checked the scraper settings ?
I meant the code in the skin. Actually both ListItem.Property(fanart_image) and ListItem.Art(fanart).

Scraper settings
Enable Artist Fanarts from fanart.tv
Enable Artist Fanarts from HTbackdrops.com

Both enabled (as i believe is default). Actually everything is enabled and set either to lastfm or musicbrainz.

Going to artists, i see names. Query for all artists does a 1 sec toast attempt.
Artist information, shows searching artist notification. Then comes with a "enter artist name" keyboard popup.
Choosing done on the keyboard causes it to re-appear. Nothing seems to be found.

In songs I am seeing album art, but that is all embedded in the music files.

Found problem, i believe:
http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid...pid1203817

But of course i can't rollback because i wiped everything. And oh great, i also wiped some photoshop files i still needed...
That made my day.
Just use another scraper or?
Yeah, no. It's fine. Wanted to test what worked "out of the box".
It's just my test setup, so no biggy. Was just chasing ghosts until i saw it was the scraper.
