wrong cover

Asked by yjmalmsteen85 on 2010-02-19

I've just played a song with Rithmbox, but Covergloobus shows the wrong cover (it's a cover by the same artist but different album).
My question is........where does CoverGloobus find covers?
Thank you!!! I love your work!!

1. it checks in the same folder of audio file for images named folder.jpg, cover.jpg, front.jpg, album.jpg, %artist% - %album%.jpg, all case insensitive with different extentions *.jpg, *.jpeg, *.png , *.gif
2. if it possible it asks player for cover path
3. if nothing found in 1 or 2 and in configuration is activated cover download it tryes to download cover from Amazon
I think downloading from Amazon may give wrong results sometimes

Hi again!!!
I have a suggestion for you! I see that lyrics.wikia has the cover for albums. I don't know if it's possible but it would be better (I think) if CoverGloobus had the possibility to look for covers on other sites (the same principle of lyrics research).
Amazon doesn't give the possibility to change cover if it's wrong. :)

I am not sure but lyrics.wikia uses Amazon for missing covers, so the problem is the same
anyway, I'll think how to improve cover searching
