At the moment this addon returns either a video screenshot or album cover. Could it be updated to return either video screenshot or track cover or album cover, in that order?

For many of the music videos I have in my collection I've already added single covers to the appropriate tracks so would be good to get these rather than all videos from a single album retruning the same album cover.

Where would a track get a cover from? Are you talking about a cover from a single?

Is there any way to handle artists that have a slash in their name such as "AC/DC"? Given you can't make a file name with a slash in it that makes the current situation impossible to scan that content into the music video library.

One possible solution is if the scraper can read ID3 artist/title tags and use those as a priority over filename encoding method if found. This would work for MP4 files, which seems to be the most common format for music video files anyway.

This solution could also solve the problem of other special problematic characters '\*?-' etc. in artist names and titles that has been reported by others.
