Iris' Image art artist come from i.scdn.co !?

Hi all,

I see on my fresh mopidy install, artist image arts are fetched from https://i.scdn.co/image/

And, so there is not displayed because no image file are present at this location…

The sample Mopidy uri on my system is:
http://foobar:6680/iris/image-zoom?url=https://i.scdn.co/image/7f3425cde6f2fd5fa60f62e9bd2c50178ac3ed43

But I dont understand how images art should be get, because I see in logs some muscibrainz fetchs.

Note: When I activate Spotify, images are displayed. But I not want to use spotify for images and I prefer the use of free databases like musicbrainz :wink:

Thanks

Iris doesn’t have a direct integration with Musicbrainz. Previously I used LastFM but artist artwork was discontinued (rather suddenly), and seeing as Spotify is already well-established it was a natural substitute with minimal development effort required.

Hi thanks for your answer!

LastFM isn’t free software, so… and same way with spotify, it will be the case too, sure…

I whould like to contribute but I’m not a developper. Could you tell me if you have the time to devel this feature request below ? Could you estimate the time and the cost for publish it ?

feature request :

Display cover and artist in relevant section in Iris

Step 1

  • scrape covers from coverartarchive.org or in id3
  • scrape artist from archive.org like here
  • create case option in Iris setup page to select where images should be fetched by “files module”
  • let the user to choose the priority ([ ] primary: coverarchive.org, [ ] seconary: spotify, etc… )

Step 2

  • create a button to scrape files and store it localy into DB
  • create a button to refresh images (download only never files)
  • create a button to store cover art into id3 files tags

Have you tried Mopidy Mobile? That seems to let you choose the image source.
