Yes, you're missing folders to store the thumbnail images.

 

See my previous message.

 

Fair enough 😉

 

I made the folder and it works now. Only caveat is that it takes a long time (30 - 120 s) every time I search for a new song, so it only really works with songs you've already searched for in practice. I'm just thinking, is it then really worth it to cache all those thumbnails? Why not just do like with artist, no thumbnails? 1) It's instant and 2) Works out of the box without need to manually create a new folder in `~/Library/Cache`

Something is wrong if it is taking 30 to 120 seconds for you. 

 

For me it generally (depending on the complexity of the query) takes a few seconds, and one of those is a wait before we actually begin the query.

 

That said, things (Apple's server?) never used to be this slow, so I think it's good to have faster options.

 

So I've uploaded 2.3 which defaults to skipping thumbail images.

The keywords for song/album with thumbail images are still there, but renamed as isong and ialbum, for people who wish to use them.

 

Thanks for the suggestion!

Ah I was on VPN before, now it's only 10s, and without thumbnails 3s. I still prefer without thumbnails though. Thanks :)
