Random images in the Artwork

Post by muralin »

I just imported 3 songs (ripped from YouTube) two days ago. Yesterday, these songs have random Artwork images. 2 songs had 14 images - all of them from my Download folder. https://www.dropbox.com/scl/fi/ekfka07g ... vz69u&dl=0

Also two of the songs have a random artist name on my iphone while the track info on my Windows computer look fine.

I rebuilt the database. No change. Only thing I have not attempted is to remove the tracks and add them back to MM. That will be my last resort.

OS: Windows 11
MM: 5.1.0.2832

Hope you can help to get this issue resolved.

Hi,
If enabled MM will try to match Album art from imaged in same folder as Media file. You can prevent that in Options.

Disable Scan file directories for Artwork if you want to prevent this.

I deleted the artwork from the files that had random images. When I view the Properties of the files, I don't see any artwork but when I search for the artist, it still shows one of the random images. https://www.dropbox.com/scl/fi/ekfka07g ... vz69u&dl=0

Can you help to get rid of it once and for all. Thanks.

Can't tell for certain from the screenshot. It may show a cached copy or it's showing the Info Panel with Artist image.
