Affects Version/s: 2.5.2
Fix Version/s: None
Component/s: Cover Art
Environment:Windows 10 64-bit
I have several albums which show a loading error. I have tracked this down to Cover Art Archive plugin issues:
a. I have CAA set to 1200px.
b. It gets the CAA JSON which lists 1200px front cover.
c. It tries to get the 1200px front cover which gives a 404 error (or possibly a different error). Cover Art loading ceases and album gets an error mark.
- Should CAA plugin try to download different size art if they get a download failure of the selected size? Should it try to first get a bigger one, and if not then try for a smaller one? Or should it give up and go on to the next provider?
- Should Picard try other plugins if the CAA download fails. I have several other providers listed after CAA, but they are not tried.
- Should Picard try to get the required size from another plugin, and then return to CAA for a different size if the other plugins cannot get it? (Do we then need a global size target for cover art rather than sizes for each plugin?)
- Should you only get an album error if the required size cover art cannot be obtained? Or if no cover art can be obtained?
