That's not possible in lyrics3, unless you want to do it manually!

Well that's a shame, but anyway I appreciate both the plugin and the reply.  Apart from this one missing feature, I don't think I've come across anything that beats it.  You are obliviously very talented and have my thanks.

If anybody needs to do this use Lyricist it can be set as an external editor, just remember to copy the lyrics.  It is under options tab and is the second from last in the list.  I don't understand Chinese so I can't help that much.

@The vern:
I Have worked in the previous versions of this component, to adapt it to my needs. There is one suggestion and one possible bug to report:
- Suggestion: In the lyric panel, when you adjust the offset by dragging a synced lyric, would be nice to have a modificator key ( like SHIFT or CTRL ) to adjust the offset with more accuracy. An example, dragging the lyric without the modificator key pressed would increment the offset by 500 ms, but pressing the modificator key, the increment would be 250 ms or less.
- Possible bug: When a song is playing and you skip forward or backwards, the lyric panel maintain the same line highlighted, which is not correct because the current time elapsed has changed. I can think that an easy solution would handle the skip forward or backwards notifications, and refresh the panel on those events.

I'm having an odd problem with saving lyrics to tags.
If the default settings of 'LYRICS' and 'UNSYNCED LYRICS' are there, lyrics are saved into a TXXX frame (user spec'd) frame, called LYRIC and then appears as some strange encoding that could be anything from chinese to korean!
If I use the ID3 standard 'SYLT' and 'USLT', the lyric appears to save, but checking the tags via another editor, nothing shows up.

Using 'save to file', everything appears fine.

Ok, i have to say: great plugin at first sight.

But i have a little big problem: i want to configure this plugin in a way, that i doesn't look automatically for lyrics online. All i've found was to put the items from search-order into available sources. But when i do so, i can't load lyrics manually anymore. This is really pitty, cause i just wanna load lyrics manually. I don't wanna all the lyrics-provider known about each song i'm playing...

Is there a way to configure your plugin for manually use only?

Anyhow, great tool with big capability. Thanks

Using the plugin for a few years, I thought It maybe the moment to thank you for all the hard work for maybe the best lyrics program I know.

Really appreciate your efforts!

Thank you very much for the great plugin! It works very well for me, it can even download synced Chinese lyrics, amazing!
I have two small questions which I hope I can get some help here:
1) I save the synced lyrics to LYRICS tag, and then convert FLAC to AAC and sync to my iphone. I noticed all lyrics are now in wired format with timestamp. Is there a way to send synced lyrics to iphone?
2) Is there a way to batch update lyrics tags? For example, select a few songs and right click "update lyrics" etc.?

Thank you very much in advance!

The plugin works great at home.  But at work, behind a corporate Web proxy, it fails to download lyrics.  Even though I set the proxy info in foobar's network configuration page it doesn't seem to get used by the plugin.  Can you make it use foobar's configured proxy setting?

great component, here are my suggestions

1) add song name in the title bar

2) make the text wrap inside the panel + add resize of the panel in sync with resizing the font

3) don't make save lyrics on hdd on by default

First of all, thanks for this little great component.

I have to suggestions/requests:

- selecting colour for the shadow below the text
- and, don't know how to explain this, enable anti-anliasing like in $drawstring function to make it look exactly the same

Keep up the good work.

Cheers

I don't agree with that. foobar does it so well.

2) make the text wrap inside the panel + add resize of the panel in sync with resizing the font

It already wraps the text. Also, I prefer to resize it myself, depending on the layout I choose. Again, let foobar control its whole layout.

3) don't make save lyrics on hdd on by default

There is an option for that. Do have a problem clicking on that option?

In version 3 somewhere the local search stopped working for me. I'm using the following save format: -Save to user defined directory: Filenameformat:
Code: [Select]
$if(%artist%,%artist%\)$if(%date%,'('%date%')  ')$if(%album%,%album%)\$if(%disc%,'disc '%disc%\)$if(%track%,%track% - )$if2(%title%,%_filename%)
Custom directory:
Code: [Select]
m:\lyrics\

With the user defined directory enabled with the current version, 0.3.6 beta4, it generates the path but doesn't save any file. It works fine now when saving to the directory same as audio file, but I really like to have my custom lyrics folder.
It used to be able to save the file in previous versions, but wasn't able to find the saved lyrics. I really hope you can fix this. Best regards, eL

Thanks for great plugin first.

" Local file search only requires title if loading from the song directory."

I have lrc files which have the same name as song files without title.
In that reason, sometimes lyric show3 would not find a lyric file.

It would be much appreciated if it is possible to search a local lyric file by a song file name.
Actually, all of my lyric files are like this.
Some works, but others not as it does not contain "title" inside a song file for some reason.

OK, maybe a dumb question but where is the option to copy lyrics? It seems to be gone? Previously there was convenient option to copy both with and without timestamp. Currently it seems that I can only open editor and then copy lyrics, but this is not that handy.

Guys, please help - how can I save lyrics to the file?

The custom directory save issues were solved for me with the latest betas. I note that you are trying to generate directories from your filename format + your code is far more complex than necessary. I suggest trying something like (untested):

Custom directory
m:\lyrics\[%artist%\]['('%date%')  '][%album%]\['disc %disc%\]

Filename format
[%track% - ][%artist%][%title%]

I think the filename needs to contain artist and title if it’s not saved to the song directory. From changelog - local file search only requires title if loading from the song directory (you may be able to get round this by batch associating and setting the find local lyrics format appropriately)

@sheppaul
The plug-in by default caters for common save formats. If you must save lyrics without the song title you may be able to get round this by batch associating the lyrics and setting the find local lyrics format according to your naming structure.

@beebeekei
Select preferences from the right click menu. Save options are on the lyric saving tab.

Hello, I have a question ! Can I change the panel size ?  Use "darkone" and I want to move the Lyrics panel to the left side and decreased it's size !

Simple answer is yes, but you may find doing it less than straightforward. I expect it's a panel stack splitter based theme and you would need to locate the panel stack splitter that contains lyrics3, and change lyrics3 size and position in the code - this may effect other panels which would need to have their positions re-coded. Further help on this would best be directed at the author where you downloaded the theme or put in the panel stack splitter thread if it's that type of theme and you want help with specific code.

You have to rebuild the layout of Darkone. I created my own skin rebuilding it with Darkone elements and placing lyrics panel on the left, like in the screen:

Thanks WilB for your response. And I forgot to mention that I'm very grateful for the plugin, it's by far the best out there.
I started with a format that you suggested but didn't get it to work and switched to the more complicated one I'm using now. (it used to work in the beginning, even in v2). Ones again I tried the one you suggested to see if it would work, unfortunately not.
The thing is that it works fine when instead of a custom directory I have it stored in the directory of the song using the same format. So I feel like it is very close to work. Also I have been following the development for a while now and I've read that when the artist and title is somewhere in the path it should be fine. This said, maybe I have to struggle with the format some more, but have other priorities now. Even so, I like to thank you for your suggestion and care.

wow, very cool development here, really so many improvements.
Thank you, The vern!


One thing I miss: What I would expect after I searched lyrics manually (click 'Liric search...' choose one and click 'Load') is:

If I didn't make actions up to the end of the song, then save. So, no right-click: Save.


P.S.: Nevertheless, I might have missed something and this is all possible now...

Edit: Due to Vista not showing the same date of changes made in the main and detail panel.

Hi guys,

Any chance to make youtube a default website for the search engine as well?

As an addition to the current searched webs.

Thanks!
Best regards, Luke

Hi Guy,

First of all, I want to thank the author for his great job ! This plugin really works like a charm and is customizable like it should be. The Lyrics editor is simple and handy just like it should be. So I very pleased that you keep up wit this good work !

@eLmaxx
I face the same problem with version 0.3.5.2 : I didn't manage to get the Save to custom directory working, whereas the other options work. I however use a much simpler absolute path like "C:\test". I run foobar on a Windows 7 64bit. So this problem is not limited to the Lyric beta version.

I hope to see this bug solve in the next release!

Did you try the latest beta (0.3.6 beta 4)?

http://code.google.com/p/foo-uie-lyrics3/downloads/list

This should have fixed the save to custom directory.
