View Full Version : iTunes Plugin on Mac for Album Art

2007-12-20, 13:18
Hi Everyone:

Can someone share their experiences with this highly respected plug-in on the Mac?

Basically I'd like to see album art on my Jive without having to copy paste art directly into individual songs or albums via Get Info.

I understand that installing this plug-in is all that might be needed to have iTunes album art show on the Web UI and Jive. Correct?

Do you mean iTunesUpdate?
The artwork functionality doesn't work on the Mac because I don't have one! I'm always in need of a developer/tester who does.

Yes, I just tried to correct the topic title. Sorry about that James.

To clarify: the iTunesUpdate plugin is available for Mac but just without the artwork feature, right?

I'd test if needed. Thanks

yes, that's right - no artwork for the Mac, but the rest works.

It would be pretty easy but I need to know if there's an AppleScript command to save the downloaded artwork somewhere.
In Windows you can just do $track->SaveArtworkToFile($filename)

There could be an Applescript to do just that. You would need files stored in some temp folder or the corresponding folder with each album?

I definitely know there is a application that strips the artwork into a folder that you can designate.

I will look into this more after CES.

Yes, the plugin stores the artwork temporarily in SlimServer's cache directory.
