Automatically download album art with foobar2000

06/02/2011

Foobar in all its album artwork glory!

If you’ve ever tried looking for a plugin that automatically fetches album art from the internet for foobar2000, you know how impossible hard it is to find a good one. But fret not, it exists, and it’s called, foo_uie_biography! (Go down to “Biography View” and click the version number to download.)

This plugin allows you to use the vast image library at Last.fm to download album artwork for all your tracks aut0matically upon playback, and send them to the standard artwork display area. Just make sure to enable the checkbox in the settings entitled “Provide artwork to other artwork viewers”. If you’re on windows and enable artwork caching, make sure to select a folder that doesn’t require administrative permissions for writing. (C:\Program Files\ will not work because foobar doesn’t run with administrative privileges.)

The magic checkbox.
