Default Coverart

Is it just me, or do we need a better source for coverart?

Follow up question without connotation to the previous...

Do we have an irc channel for devs/testers?

I haven't added any video content yet, so audio. The images are in poor resolution and it finds only 70% of my albums.

No IRC channel? How is that even possible.. I'm already on #xbmc.

FYI; I believe that it is AMG (allmusic.com) that is currently being used for album covers.

Do you know of a better online source that is free?

PS! Maybe you could include a list of specific albums that you think get poor quality covers.

we have partnered with muze, and will change to use their cover art for music in one of the upcoming versions.

additionally, we will support selecting your own cover art if you wish to do so.

I was thinking we could do a boxee-database where people using boxee could contribute coverart. People would have to able to administrate it by choosing one cover over an other and thereby the best quality cover would be selected by default.

tsella : That sounds cool, I'll look forward to that.

this "community-vot-thing" would be awesome..

I would very much like to ad my own cover-art. 90% it's okay but sometimes you need something else.
