Hm, no ... Seems lastfm have changed something

The response from their API:


<lfm status="failed">
<error code="27">
The artist.getImages method has been deprecated.
</error>
</lfm>

Ugh. It seems last.fm have removed the ability to get artist images permanently.

Artist images are removed in 5.0 so this is no longer an issue

Btw... What's the algorithm for the new screensaver? I was playing some web radios on Digital Imported and the screensaver just displayed a series of 10 city pictures (bridges, etc). Is there a way to control its behavior?

#11 Updated by Andreas Smas over 5 years ago

Yeah, it's no longer tied to the media playing it's just showing various images.

I'm gonna add an option to select a folder of your own so one can replace the images.

Sweet. Thanks!

If you could add the support for Bing's image of the day, that would be sweet too! They provide some JSON calls if you need. http://stackoverflow.com/questions/10639914/is-there-a-way-to-get-bings-photo-of-the-day

It looks great! However, can you move the picture description on the left and a little bit up? Otherwise it interferes with the bottom info bar when playing music.
