AlbumArt.org – Search CD and DVD Cover/Album Art

The site AlbumArt.org takes advantage of the power of PHP with the flexibility of Ajax to create a simple, powerful site that you can use to query album art for your favorite CDs and DVDs.

Type the name of a CD/DVD or artist in the searchfield below and Albumart.org will find hundreds of covers within seconds!

The site makes a request back to a PHP script that does the work, and fills in the results from the search below. All of the images are being pulled from the related Amazon.com entries, but the clean interface and simple search type are what make this search stand out.

[…] My small project Albumart.org today got onto the frontpage of Digg.com. The site instantly got more than 2000 hits per second and the webserver running the site is running seriously slow. The site also got picked up by Ajaxian – a site dedicated to AJAX and AJAX-enabled site. […]

Another hobby project… nice but no sigar.

Some problems:
You can’t navigate the results using the up and down arrow keys
Press the >> button and you get an error.
Press the >> button and the scroll bar stays at the bottom, very awkward
Press the back button and you’re back here

Those are the things that make this search stand out, in a negative way of course.

It;s a hobby project, let’s look at it that way and not like it’s some site that’s actually useful.

A much better Ajax cover web site is at:
http://dink.no-ip.info/CoverSearch/

But he only does movies. The site brings back ajax results as you type in movie titles! That’s the real beneit to using Ajax.
