Album art from Amazon and AlbumArtExchange not working?

Hi, sbooth! Thanks a lot for the awesome apps, I've been using them for a couple of years now.

After a while having not used them, though, I'm finding that fetching of album art isn't working from either AlbumArtExchange or Amazon.

I took some TCP captures to see what was going on, and for AlbumArtExchange, it looks like its something on their end. I see the following XML send back in response to the search query:

Code: Select all

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<search-results>
  <error>Database error.</error>
</search-results>
For Amazon, though, it gives back the following:

Code: Select all

<ItemSearchResponse xmlns="http://webservices.amazon.com/AWSECommerceService/2009-02-01">

Looks like it is missing an "AssociateTag" parameter, whatever that does.

Thanks!

Same problem here

Running OS X Lion 10.7.3
Rip Version 1.0b (14)

Is there any way to get this to run automatically and pull results from both sources, using the first result as the default and then letting you click on the image to choose a different one?

I created an bug report for this at https://bugs.launchpad.net/rip/+bug/940060

Hi, sbooth.

I'm still having problems with this, I was wondering if I could get a copy of the source so that I could try to make a patch?

I noticed that http://files.sbooth.org/ has the source for all of your other projects, except Rip :)

Thanks,
nobbie
