That's how I understood it.  It seems that the one member on the Leo's Lyrics forum I linked to maintains the alternative server, so he could possibly provide more info on what the server does and how it can be accessed.

Happy to see that work on this component continues and new sources will be added. Thanks, Qudeid! 

As i remember correctly LyricsWiki stopped working as a source for lyricsgrabber. Is it now possible to add this site that seems to be a follower? If not so please remove the LyricWiki entry in context menu.

What dou think about sources wich are more specialised like Dark Lyrics for metal? I am thinking amongst others about two sources: http://www.lololyrics.com/ and http://www.ohhla.com/

In my development version, LyricsWiki is already removed.

I am currently waiting on information from hitchhiker about this lyrics server that scans multiple websites (including DarkLyrics). But if that will not happen, of course DarkLyrics will be added. I'm a DarkLyrics-User myself . *biased *

But all in all, I wouldn't like to add too many sites, afterall there is the possibility to use a python script. But the Major ones will be added for sure.  (And maybe even a possibility to click something like "Search All" and it scans all builtin lyrics provider, but I'm not sure about that one... I don't want to make a promise too early)

A "Search All" feature would be useful for scanning one song and to choose the best source by comparing. Would like that!

I haven't really thought about comparing.. it would be more like "First hit gets chosen"... I wouldn't bet on this comparison, sorry.

Ah, i see what you mean: If a source doesn't return a result then the next source is asked. Nice as long as the order of sources definable.

I won't!  Since inside lyricsgrabber the foobar window is available we already can call other lyricsgrabber windows quickly for comparison.


Edit
By the way: There is a typo in configuration window - it is spelled "quiet mode" and not "quite mode"

At first, the order is determined by the order in the context menu (which seems to change). So I will at first only implement that it is possible, and works. And later on, maybe, expand the configuration window to define the order. But as I am not really fond of C++ windows, dialogs, etc. I will push that back.

About that typo... I guess, if T.P.Wang doesn't say a word today, I will open up a google code project, so issues can be reported. Thanks for all your help!

Is this possible?

Once I've cleared thing a little for me in this project, could be. I don't want to promise anything, but I see no reason why that shouldn't be possible.

Would you want that additionally to the Tag? Or, either the .txt or the Tag?

It would so amazing to have Metal-Archives as a source since they have huge amounts of lyrics, mission impossible ?

IMHO lyricsgrabber should be restricted to save lyrics in files as tag. As lyrics are a trackspecific information i see no reason to store them as textfiles. One point i like about lyricsgrabber is its simple and clean concept - take a look in foo_uie_lyrics and its horrible bloatness in regard to reading and storing lyrics.

However, to grab lyrics from textfiles could be useful to quickly tag the music files with already downloaded textfiles.

In that context i would like to ask for a simple way to edit lyrics manually. I know that this could be done in properties dialogue but i am thinking of a more convenient way: a standalone and resizable window.

Though this has nothing to do with Lyricsgrabber anymore. It's sole purpose is to find and download lyrics. And I intend to keep it that way. For the other task, I would suggest, either another plugin, or just using the properties.

About the textfiles.. we'll see. I'm at the Moment setting up a new Google Code project with the latest Dll and source. And I will open up a new thread, to keep thing a little separated, as my modified version of Lyricsgrabber hasn't, besides its origin, anything to do with Mr. Wang's.

Another idea: if only one item is selected the windows clipboard might be a good source to grab.

As I said, we'll see about that. First priority is to get a few more providers into the plugin (hopefully what Hitchhiker said is true!)

Also.. Please refer to this Thread from now on: http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index....showtopic=82772

Everything that is about Mr. Wang's version of the plugin can still be placed here, of course. He has nothing to do with what I do with foo_lyricsgrabber2, however.

I cannot make it work! It gives me always "not found", but I'm sure that I selected a song with a lyric on Lyrics Wikia!
