This would lead to better results for some lesser known artists..

An option for Customizing which fields and text strings to look for while automatically / manually searching the internet for the album cover art picture , with levels of search --- would be highly appreciated.
means if option 1 leads to a result then good, else option 2 would be searched for...

option 1 / option 2 / option 3 each can be a combination of various fields and text strings as accepted by search engines and websites.

yes useful info, but it doesnt change the search parameters when MusicBee automatically searches for album art while playing online radio stations.
a lot of times the Cover art downloaded is just wrong.

I second this. I was going to post a request for custom search options on cover art myself, but found this request and decided to reply instead. Often a search will find nothing and if I then try to click the search it won't do anything and just tells me nothing was found because it's looking for artist and album both. I'd love to be able to tell it to just search for artist or some other word. I have also noticed that it tends to find some picture that has nothing to do with either the album or the artist, so I have no idea how it actually searches. A customized search option would be very welcome. :)
