    Acquiring the cover art for a favorite item with the CLI.

    How would I go about getting the cover art for a favorite item with the CLI?

    The “favorites items” command returns an url for an album or track. How do I go from there to get the id’s to acquire the covert art?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Hmm... I don't think it's accessible directly. For local tracks you
    could use the "titles" query to get details about it, for albums the
    "albums" query, obviously.

    Thanks for your response, Michael.

    Does the "albums" query work with the url I get back from the "favorites item want_url:1" command, for example "db:album.title=Funeral",similarly for the "titles" query?

    Thanks
    Louis.

    No, unfortunately not. You'd have to strip off the db:album.title prefix
    yourself, then run a text query based on the title given. That's
    actually how the favorite itself would work.
