Re: "Forbidden" when downloading cover art

Too bad Amazon US will not work again.

If I understand this, after editing the registry to show Amazon UK ----- if I ever accidentally select Amazon US as the download site again, the original error will reappear, requiring another REGEDIT to clear it.

I wonder how long it will take for Amazon UK to stop working?

Which makes me wonder if we will see something similar in BookCAT and CATvids regarding Amazon downloads? Or maybe this only has to do with the issue of "image" ownership, i.e., a Google search for "Images?"

Yes, it's happening with those programs too. The difference is that the selection of download sites is accessible via the "Options - Download from Internet" popups in both programs. IOW no registry editing is needed.

In CATvids there are two selections for download sites: "Video data" and "Contents data". "Video data" is downloaded from Amazon USA if "USA" is selected, Amazon UK if "UK" is selected, and so on. "Contents data" is downloaded from IMDB if USA is selected. I don't know about the other selections for "Contents data".

In my case I've changed the CATvids "Video data" site to "UK" and retained the "USA" selection for "Contents data." This combo works for now.

I don't have a list, just know that "1" is Amazon US and "2" is Amazon UK.
OY! The old setting in my registry was "6". Go figure. Anyway, "2" is working.
