First of all great plugin, many thanks for keeping up the work!

Now my question: 
Is there a possibility to save the lyrics to a file? Because I don't want to save all of my lyrics in the %Lyrics%-Tag. Instead I save 'em all in /Lyrics/%artist%/%album%/%title%.txt

If there is no possibilty yet, could you just add a button to save the lyrics to a file?
I think it wouldn't be much work, because the files are already a *.txt on the server.

Thanks a lot!

Maybe you can achieve that using foo_utils.

HTH.

Thanks for your fast reply.
But I don't get it. How can foo_utils be helpful to me? Could you explain it to me? Many Thanks in advance.

Otherwise, I think the easiest and fastest way is to surf the internet for the lyrics and save 'em manually in a file.

Format text from track information and copy to clipboard or save to file
Form http://foosion.foobar2000.org/components/?...on=0.6.2+beta+6

It seems to me this was mainly used to create nicely formatted HTML files, but I guess nothing would stop you from creating a plain text file containing only the LYRICS tag. And I suppose you can also create a keyboard shortcut to activate this functionality.

Please note that I never actually tried it, so this is pure speculation on my part.

HTH.

I am using the default foobar and i was wondering if it was possible to put the lyrics in just a tab?  like the UI elements?

thanks in advance

Use the Text Display component.

Thanks for your plugin, it is exactly what I was looking for.

I'm using foobar on Linux with Wine, and lyricsdb did not work out of the box for me. It is necessary to override the wine dll msxml3.dll (and maybe msxml3r.dll) with an original windows dll. I am using the dll from my old Windows XP installation and now lyricsdb is working just fine for me.
(Just in case there are others with the same problem.)

oh, thanks, man, I'll place that somewhere on the site.

And by the way, it's still that bad with media players under linux? ;)

There are some players that are quite okay, but nothing like Foobar. The only thing I am missing with Wine-Foobar is Drag&Drop-Support, everything else is working perfectly fine and I could keep all my foobar-customizations from my old windows installation by just copying it to Linux. Could be worse


There are many lyrics in the database that have only the first 1-20 characters of the text and the rest is missing. One example is the complete "HedniskhjÀrtad" album by Vintersorg, e.g. http://lyrics.mirkforce.net/vintersorg/norrland.txt and http://lyrics.mirkforce.net/vintersorg/stilla.txt
Does this happen due to a software bug, or is it just a careless edit by some users?

Other look like this: http://lyrics.mirkforce.net/ulver/ulvsblakk.txt
Is this some kind of automatic lyrics import or again careless editing?

(I know I can correct them myself and I'll do that whenever I find the time, but it's way to much to correct them all at once.)


Oh, and why is the FAQ visible only after login? (It's not very helpful yet, but anyway  )

there's a very annoying bug which happens when it says "some network problem, aborting" which cause it not to abort, ever, and the window just stays frozen, so i can only remove by restarting foobar.


great plugin, nevertheless

Just wondering if this is on my end or a server problem...

Always says - [Lyrics not available] in my player

Is there an option I am missing?

Is there an easy way to upload lyrics? Something like a, "Check if server has lyrics" or an "Only upload if lyrics are missing" command would make things easier. Maybe the component could show both server side and client side lyrics to let users compare them before submitting.

Like Right click -> Export to db you mean? But, if I'm not mistaken, it's extremely basic: if a song is already in the db, it will create a "twin" and you (or someone else) will have to use the web interface to do the cleanup.

HTH.

That sounds like time consuming, potentially unnecessary work. (In addition,) Its web interface seems to be kind of slow.

You are right, but I don't think dug is actively developing the plugin and the site anymore (yes, a real shame because it's a great project IMHO). We'll have to make the best out of what we have today... hoping it will be still here tomorrow.

Thanks for looking into it.

I had noticed this a couple of weeks ago, but assumed it was a work/proxy thing.  I should have spoken up earlier.
