Thanks! 

So the "timestamped 3" database is hosted by minilyrics / viewlyrics, did i understand this right? It's a pity that there seems to be no free lyrics database which has an open upload-API for any lyrics plugin. I assume this is the reason why there's no direct possiblity via foo_uie_lyrics3.

...anyway, the minilyrics-solution is better than nothing.

Hi,

Thank you for the great plugin.
I'd like to ask whether it is possible to save both synced and unsynced lyrics as two different tags?
I prefer synced lyrics in foobar2000, but iOS device doesn't recognize synced lyrics, therefore I have to use standard lyrics.

What I'm doing for each new album that I add to the library are:
1) Set foo_uie_lyrics3 to preferred synced lyrics and then use foo preview go through all songs
2) Set foo_uie_lyrics3 to preferred unsynced lyrics  and then use foo preview go through all songs

Could the above steps being simplified? Any suggestion is appreciated!

Nice plugin.
Maybe you could add this page to search lyrics http://www.instantlyrics.net/

Very nice plugin, it comes in handy all the time.

Any chance of integrating Lololyrics? They have an extensive Electronic music lyric library written by the community, so it covers most electronic music ... and they have a dedicated API that would most likely make it very easy to integrate into the plugin http://api.lololyrics.com/ ...

Cool plugin, I really love it!

Umm, but could you add two options to change?
I dislike that i cannot change color in synced lyrics (the highlight is too dark for me as i have colored background, and it makes the lyrics unreadable)

Except that, great job!
(i have actually made this account just to tell you that)

Did you explore the colour options: right click/panel preferences/display tab? You can do what you want in that tab (in UI mode colours are controlled by UI settings and in that mode you would need to change those settings; otherwise you can use custom mode).

Hi!
I have got a question about the layout:
Is it possible that the highlined line(s) has/have got a different background color? I tried to to that by giving it an transperent background and putting some recs onto the spliter. For single lines it works perfectly, but if one part of the lyrics needs two lines, the text is centered and does not fit into the rect. Has somebody a solution for thet problem?

btw.: very nice panel  everything else works fine!

Look this topic just above, I did ask the same question just before you ...the answer is:

Right click panel,
open Panel Preferences,
in panel Colours and font change mode to Custom,
set your own colours beneath
...you will probably want to set up a new background in the right panel as well

Uhm i think you did not understand my question... i know how to change the font, normal font color, highline font color and the normal background color. But i asked for an option to change the backgroundcolor of the "active" / "just singing" line.

Heres a pic of what i mean:

it doesn't seem to be grabbing lyrics from darklyrics.com any more

A quick test shows that darklyrics.com is working for me. So it may be worth checking your settings. If the problem persists please post some artist - title combinations that are failing where you know the lyrics are present at the site.

hmm thing is my settings have been the same for quite some time. The artist I was looking for is Klone, their last album (it is on darklyrics)

I tried various Klone tracks : Rising; Stratum; Corridors and all were found - but the capitalisation of the title had to be the same; e.g. stratum, rising and corridors were not found (same with other artists). I am not sure if this is a new issue or whether its always been this way. May be a bug fix to make the searching less stringent is required. Also if you're not using the latest version (see post #1), then please note that there was another bug fix to darklyrics searching a few versions back.

hmm, that's weird because I don't remember this happening before. Anyway, I just checked and the capitalization is the same for all tracks and it sill won't find them :/. I tried both the latest full and beta versions, same results.

What values do you have on the plugin's settings under Artist and Title? I have the stock ones

I retested with default artist - title settings. I am still finding darklyrics. In one test I put darklyrics as first search item and set it to search for only non-synced. I also tested with the right click lyrics search and all default settings (prefer synced & darklyrics as last source), which will search all sources rather than stop as soon is it finds a match and so should search even if another source finds a lyric. Darklyrics were still found. I suggest checking this way if you haven't already in case there are aberrant associations. Of course if somehow your searching was set to sync only then it wouldn't find them as I think darklyrics are all non-synced. Other than that all I can think of is to try changing the timeout although the default 1500 msec works fine for me so I doubt if it's that unless your connection to the site is slow.

Hmm, well I solved it by removing all sources and re-adding them. That's weird. Thanks for your help!

Is there a way to automatically remove
"Artist: %artist%
Album: %album%
Title: %title%"
from lyrics that get auto-saved?
I tried removing that info from the fallback text, but that didn't affect what gets auto-saved.

Example pic:

How do I get the component to auto-save lyrics without those first three lines?

I'd like that too, I hate it, but I thought that was added by the people that created the lyrics

I can't get this plugin to save unsynced lyrics to the file tag automatically. it works fine if I force save, but it doesn't happen by itself

Guys, I experience a problem. Lyrics show panel v.3 doesnt find lyrics over internet anymore. It only shows lyrics which was already been written to mp3 file. Is it my fault or he program stopped work from copyright issues? I tried to turn off win firewall, my antivirus but it didnt help.

I just tried it now right after i read the post; and the search worked fine for me. I cannot tell you what is wrong, but it might be that you are expecting to find lyrics that arent anywhere on the servers with which the plugin works.

Version 0.4 beta uploaded: http://code.google.com/p/foo-uie-lyrics3/downloads/list

Changelog:[/u]
- Added a batch lyric downloader - available by right clicking on a selection of items in the playlist and clicking "Download lyrics..."
- Added a google search - This does a google search for lyrics and will attempt to download the lyrics from sites automatically. If it is unable to download the lyrics it will pop up a window asking you to select the lyrics from a webpage's text. It will try and remember the selection you made so future searches of that website can be automated (however it's not particularly intelligent so it probably won't work most of the time). The popup selection dialogue will only be displayed when the lyrics are loaded from the lyric search dialogue (so as not to interrupt normal playback).
- Added a cancel search button to the lyric search box.
- Fixed the repaint issues on seeking tracks
- Made several changes to how the plugin's display is updated
- Instant lyric scrolling by putting the scroll speed slider to its highest value (far right)
- Titleformatting for the background image path
- Fixed Dark lyrics issues with different capitalisations
- Made a large number of changes to the config system in an attempt to make it more stable
- Other stability improvements

Thanks for all previous feedback and enjoy testing the new version

upgraded from 0.3.6 beta. had some hiccup, but issue disappeared now. the exact step is shown below

1. using foobar's update to pick the 0.4 beta zip file
2. restart foobar
3. add a flac file with single track into play list
4. play the added flac track
5. lyric panel is blank. no fall back text and no lyric loaded. lyrics panel is completely empty
6. restart foobar
7. play the added flac track again
8. lyric panel is still blank. no fall back text and no lyric loaded. lyrics panel is completely empty
9. tried all other tracks and they all worked fine
10. realized all other tracks are cue sheet, not direct media file
11. made a cuesheet containing the flac file
12. add track by importing cuesheet
13. play the cuesheet track
14. lyrics loaded without issue
15. play the direct flac track again
16. lyrics now loads properly
17. delete the cue sheet track
18. restart foobar
19. play direct flac track again
20. lyrics loaded without issue



not sure what happened, but issue come and goes.
