Full Version: Music scraper isn't finding some fanart
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
The scraper isn't able to find fanart for some of my more obscure bands. I want to add fanart of my own. I know I can do this with movies and TV. Can I do this with Music? If so, how where do I stick the files and how do I label them?
htbackdrops.com
i have no problems getting my own fanarts. I just need to know what folder to put them in and how to label them so that they work
just upload them to htbackdrops.com, that's where the scraper search from.
What about the times it scrapes and finds fanart I don't like? Can I change it?

I wish there was a third part app like ember media manager
Currently my file setup is

F:\Music\Artist Name\ Album 1
F:\Music\Artist Name\ Album 2

so forth

I stuck fanart.jpg in F:\Music\Artist Name\

When I went back to xbmc and rescan it still doesn't find the fanart. Am I uploading my folder in the wrong spot?
Try to refresh the artist from the info window.
Will do. I ran a test on my laptop (running the PM skin instead of AEON) and it worked fine. When I get home I'll try the refresh and if that doesn't work I'll switch skins and try it first.

You can upload an other fanart to htbackdrops, then choose it directly in XBMC (by pressing "i" on the artist).
