Get Cover Art from iTunes


#1

The iTunes Music Store offers many CD covers in 600x600 high quality jpgs. It would be awesome if Mp3tag could download them.

I found a couple of websites that can do it, so I thought it would be possible for Florian to add this.

Why? Because a lot of times covers can't be found with the current methods. Also, because these covers are higher quality than what I've seen before. Take a look for yourself.

The second one explains a bit how to do it (also in the comments), hopefully it'll be a starting point for Florian.

Best regards :smiley:

However, Apple started to encrypt covers.

Oh, I see... After reading a bit more into it, I found out that old covers still work, while newer ones are being encrypted. Bummer.
