OK, I get it. Anyway, it doesn't matter: This addon is better than that :-)

Maybe I've found a little bug...but also a workaround
When listening to a various artists album or a compilation, the addon recognize the new (never played before) artist, but only 1 picture is displayed. To diplay the others I have to get out of the visualisation view and come back.
There's no problem if the artist have been played before.
Is this happening also to others?
Anyway, like I said, it's just a little bug.

it doesn't happen on my end, but i may need to adjust some timings in the script.
but...i'm gonna need a debug log to know for sure. :-)

you'll get a debug log. Right now I can't find the time, but I'll do it.

here is the debug log:
I played an Artist (Bad Religion) for the first time using the addon and when I go to the visualisation mode, it displays only 1 image. This happens always when I play the artist for the first time.
What also happens is that when I go out and come back to the visualisation mode (workaround) it displays only a few images the whole time, but I know there should be more, so I go out again from the visualisation mode for a longer period of time and come back, it displays more images.
I hope it's clear. Please, tell me if you need any other debug log.

well, let me explain how the addon works, that might clear up a few things...
as soon as the first image is downloaded it will show up on your screen.
xbmc will keep using this (and only this) image while other images are downloaded in the background. (xbmc does not automatically pick up those new ones).
as soon as all images are downloaded, the script will force xbmc to refresh the slideshow, so all images will be used.
this means, in the case a track ends before all images are downloaded, you'll only get to see the first image.
getting out of the visualization screen and back in, will also refresh the slideshow, so you'll get to see the images that have been downloaded so far.
i think that's what you're experiencing.
now i'll have a look at your log to see if i'm right ;-)
nope...not what's happening at your end.
so back to plan A, adjust some timings in the script.
