I thoroughly love this cover search software.

Search Preview:
https://i.gyazo.com/b77c1882d4b8e40edd887a8948f90296.png


I setup:
A toolbar button in Musicbee that, based on the selected track, searches the artist and album in Album Art Downloader






Directions:

1. Open MusicBee Preferences and select the "Tools" tab



2. add the application path (mine is C:\Program Files\AlbumArtDownloader\AlbumArt.exe) {just click the button on the right side with three dots then navigate to the exe file}

3. Make sure you set the parameters to: "<Artist>"  "<Album>"



4. click Save


---- You can stop at this point and just right click the file and use the "Send To" feature ----




If you wish to add the toolbar button as I did:

5. Right click your toolbar then "Configure Toolbar"




6. Click the plus sign to add a new button command



7. click the three dots and Set the command to the "Send To: External Application (selected file) [your #]"

Mine was #3 because Audition and MediaInfo were apps 1 and 2...

Very much very helpfully this extension  :)  functions very well with my MusicBee version 3.3.7015.

Because I hear many rather unknown artists, I have searched in the past long with Google for a suitable album cover.

'Albumart' shortens this cover Searching uncommon.

In addition, this description also for laymen like me understandably

Many thanks for it  :)  :)  :)

👍👍👍   To @Steven and the other administrators...I think this very useful plugin should definitely be added to the MusicBee Addons   👍👍👍

This is not a plugin. It is a stand-alone app that can be linked to be used from MB's 'send to' context menu. Read the first post for instructions.

Download the latest MusicBee v3.3 patch from here.
Unzip into your MusicBee directory and overwrite existing files.
