Re: [Rhythmbox-devel] Update : Download and show albums covers


I finally gave a try to your arch tree (I also added it to rb website
development page, it will show up when the web site is synced with the
content of the arch repo). All in all, it's working really nicely though
I'm not a big fan of the UI decisions :-/ I also had to apply the small
attached patch, otherwise it crashed when I tried to play a song.
The bottom left part of rb window is too big to display an amazon cover,
some look really fuzzy... 
The "cover manager" should probably be integrated somehow with the song
properties and extended to be a "fix my song tags using amazon" a bit
like I'm not sure how to get
that 100% right though since song properties are per song, and this
"cover editor/tag fixer" would be per album. This is just food for
thought anyway ;)
Finally, I think I'd just grab the missing covers from amazon at startup
without asking the user or requiring him to go to the cover editor.

All in all, excellent travail ;) , cheers,
