How do I submit timecoded lyrics that this plugin would find? I just can't find a site that accepts synced lyrics.

Can I open "external editor" without windows prompt standing by?

Hi guys. Im using version 0.5 (last one i think) but again, i cant get any lyric at all to actually save to custom defined folder. I deactivated auto saving just in case and i save lyrics automatically with right click-> save. But nothing is saved.

Is this still an issue? o.O

EDIT: Ok, so it appears that if i change the folder to root D:\whatever it works. But if i save the song to the app directory, c:\program files\foobar2000\lyrics   for example, it doesnt.

Any clue?

Certain windows folders you need to run the application so you can write to them, I believe that the one you indicated and that you are not saving is one of them, or you run foobar2000 at the administrative level or choose other folders that do not require this. I think.

Hello the Vern. I'm reporting a issue.

I noticed that for embedded synced lyrics (in ID3v2 tag, the most common tag for mp3), the plugin read and write a user defined frame (TXXX) called LYRICS. Is there any reason that the SYLT frame (standard ID3v2 frame for synced lyrics) was not used? Lyrics embeded in other software like MusicBee, Minilyrics, JetAudio can't be displayed in this plugin because of this. Maybe consider adding support for SYLT frame? (it will make a lot more sense as SYLT is the intended and standard way to embed synced lyrics).

For more help:
You can find more info about frames like USLT, SYLT, TXXX at the ID3v2 website (http://id3.org/id3v2.3.0).
You can check a mp3 file's tag structure with a software called "MP3 Diag", you can use it to check what frame (USLT/SYLT/TXXX) is in a mp3 file.

It's just my suggestion though, as making things more standardized makes more sense to me, and it will allow users to see lyrics on different platforms.

Same problem here at 200% scaling.

I wanted to try and fix this myself and submit a pull request, but I could not get the component to compile, due to all the SDK and other libs needing old/XP versions of the Visual Studio toolset, and not all of them having the source code to rebuild the libs. :(

I'd be happy to help fix the code if I can. Have lots of experience with DPI stuff in Windows, and it should be quite simple.

There are a couple of workarounds for people experiencing this problem:

1) If you close foobar then right-click foobar2000.exe, Properties, Compatibility and set DPI scaling to System (or System Enhanced), it will be tricked into thinking Windows is in standard DPI and you can go in and make changes to the settings, then undo that. Unfortunately, some of the settings themselves are subject to DPI changes, so you may find you have to go back & forth a few times until you have everything how you want.

2) Better, but requires you grab nircmd.exe or a similar tool that can resize other programs' windows. You can resize the plugin's settings window with a command like this:

Code: [Select]
"C:\Program Files\NirCmd\nircmdc.exe" win setsize title "Lyrics show Settings" 0 0 800 700

Experiment with the last two numbers to get a size that's right on your system.

The OK and Cancel buttons will still be in the wrong place, maybe on top of something else and impossible to click, but you can just use Return or Esc instead of those. This made things work well enough for me to get the plugin configured. Hope it helps!

Does anyone know where to properly upload timestamped lyrics (.lrc) to since Minilyrics has just murdered the website? (Website gives 404 on pretty much all pages, old lyrics are gone and new ones can't be uploaded even with a new account).
Makes me wonder how much has been lost really, very sad. (Is there any backup out there?)

Making timestamped lyrics is a bit of a hobby and a way to keep my mind of things while working on songs that I love.

I know this plugin uses these sources:
Online DB: Timestamped 1: https://www.cicyzone.com/Lyrictest
Online DB: Timestamped 2a: http://lrcct2.ttplayer.com/
Online DB: Timestamped 2b: http://ttlrcct.qianqian.com/
Online DB: Timestamped 2c: http://ttlrccnc.qianqian.com/
Online DB: Timestamped 3: http://www.viewlyrics.com/
Online DB: Timestamped 4: http://music.baidu.com/search/lrc
Online DB: Timestamped 5: http://lp.music.ttpod.com/
Online DB: Timestamped 6: http://www.lirik.mobi/


But none of them seem to really show how to upload to them or don't even exist.

The Minilyrics website (https://www.crintsoft.com/minilyrics/) is up for me as of this post and loading all pages, maybe they were just down for maintenance, give it another try.

Not the case, the minilyrics application itself is still available but its lyric database website is broken: https://viewlyrics.com/
Been like this for weeks, you will see "Online DB: Timestamped 3" does never show up anymore in foo_uie_lyrics3 results because the database is cleared

You can check Lyrics.wikia.com or as it is called now https://lyrics.fandom.com/wiki. AFAIR it was all manual. Search for .lrc brings some time stamped lyrics. I'm not sure if it works as a source anyway.

Yep, I stand corrected there smiba.  The foo_uie_lyrics3_minilyrics plugin also throws the 404 message.  I seem to recall them being operationally offline for an extended period in the past, so hopefully they show up eventually.  If not, what a waste.

@The vern:

An issue with fallback text- I use the comment tag as fallback (mostly for catching podcast information, as that's commonly the tag used for podcast descriptions, etc.), but it seems that quite a few podcasters are on Macs (or maybe using iTunes to tag their pods?). Problem is (I think!), the end-of-line text character for Mac is CR (carriage return), while for Windows it's CRLF (carriage return-line feed), so on my Windows computer I end up getting text with no line breaks. Would it be easy/possible to fix this?

And also a couple of feature requests:

1. User configurable text buttons on the editor panel. Specifically for adding often repeated lines (PRECHORUS:, CHORUS:, REPEAT CHORUS, BRIDGE, FIRST VERSE, etc.). Pretty much have to be user configurable because of the various ways different users format such things (capitalization, parentheses, brackets and so on).

2. Get the "external editor" button to open up the specified editor even if the lyrics are saved in the tag (currently it opens the Properties dialog box). I have macros in Notepad++ for easily fixing/formatting common lyrics mistakes that, obviously, I can't run from Properties.

Really appreciate all the work you've done on this component over the years.

Hi guys, just wondering if I could make this plugin load a specific lrc file in the local directory? Thanks!

Edit: Never mind! I just figured it out in the Property/Local search! Thanks!
