@ohyeah:   it always begins the lyrics half-way down the display panel as shown below.  Is there a way to add a setting to begin the display closer to the top of the panel?
https://github.com/ESLyric/release/releases/tag/0.5.3.1018    you can try!
Thanks, I have updated to that version, but still do not see an option to start the display of unsynced lyrics at the top of the panel instead of in the middle.

Right click on the lyrics panel, panel settings, there is a new menu, highlight line offsets. You try it. Since I don't have unsynced lyrics, I don't know if it will have the effect you expect. Or you can join the discord community to discuss.

Only seems to affect placement of synced lyrics.  It's OK, I can live with it, I know this plugin is primarily designed for synced lyrics anyway.  Thanks for replying.

I've only just used the Desktop Lyric. Sort of forgot about it lol.

It's awesome.

What I'd love, though, is to have it only display when Foobar200 is in the foreground. Is that possible?

Sort of like it's just a different type of lyrics display panel within fb2k.

I was just playing around and had this (attached screenshot) in the top right. But I don't want the lyrics to show over other programs like my browser.

Thanks.

It CAN be added as another display panel within fb2k.  Just go into Layout Editing Mode and either add a panel or add a tab to an existing panel area and "replace existing UI element" in the tabbed area--ESLyric will appear as a choice.  Then un-check the "Show the desktop lyric window" in its settings.

Thanks very much for the reply. Maybe I'm misunderstanding you but ...

I know how to add the ESLyric panel.

What I'm trying to do is only display the Desktop Lyric panel. And I'd like it to only display when fb2k is in focus.

So I don't really want a "desktop" panel. I just want the lyrics to display in that style within fb2k.

I'd like the lyrics to display just like in the screenshot I attached in my previous post, but not have the lyrics display over other programs.

1、You can set a shortcut key to display desktop lyrics to quickly turn on or off when needed; 2、Double-click the ESL panel to enter the full-screen interface for better immersion! 3、If the taskbar display lyrics can meet your needs, I can share a solution; 4、If it's not enough, you can go to github to mention the demand and see if the author will consider adding it.

You can also add the esl panel in between the two panels in your screenshot and set the lyrics to scroll horizontally.

2. Didn't know that. Thanks!
3. Not sure what taskbar display lyrics will do, but I don't think it's what I'm trying to do.
4. Thanks, I will.

1. This is a brilliant idea I should have thought of. This is the solution, I think. Thank you very much.

Is it possible to have ESLyric scan for .lrc files (in the same folder as the tracks and with the same track title) and copy the lyrics to the lyrics tag?

I know ESLyric can look for local files before the tags, so most of the time the local files work fine.

But if I copy few tracks to an external mp3 player, the .lrc files don't go with them (unless I copy whole folders).

So I like to have all the lyrics stored in the lyrics tag.

I'd like to be able to copy lyrics files from another computer. I can do that easily (in the correct folder structure), but then I don't know how to force Foobar2000 to make sure the lyrics are then embedded in the tags.

Perhaps it can already do this but I haven't managed to find out how?

Many thanks.

You could try some experimenting with foo_masstagger.  It may be able to do this (create lyric tags then copy lyrics matching a specified criteria into those tags) in a couple of operations, but I don't have the expertise to go any further than suggesting you test.

Thanks a lot. I'll see what I can do with it.

EDIT: Well, I can't see anything in Masstagger that would do it. Attached screenshot shows the options.

I'm looking into whether mp3tag can do it.

But I still wonder if ESLyric can.

I think I've nearly worked out how to do the above with mp3tag so don't worry about that one. Thanks for the help, sveakul.

A separate thing:

Some of the lyrics that ESLyrics grabs are in this (karaoke?) format ...

[00:00.00]<00:00.00>There<00:00.91> <00:01.83>Ain't<00:02.74> <00:03.66>Half<00:04.58> <00:05.49>Been<00:06.41> <00:07.32>Some<00:08.24> <00:09.16>Clever<00:10.07> <00:10.99>Bastards<00:11.90> <00:12.82>-<00:13.74> <00:14.65>Ian<00:15.57> <00:16.48>Dury<00:17.40>

They are not compatible with the BlackPlayer music player on my phone (see attached screenshot) (or the OpenLyrics fb2k component).

1. Is it possible to tell ESLyric not to download those type of lyrics?

2. Is there any way to convert these lyrics into normal synced lyrics with just the timestamps in square brackets, maybe with regex in a text editor?

3. Any other suggestions to work around this?

Thanks.

I'd like to edit my previous post above but can't.

Main problem solved. I'll leave this here in case it's any use to anyone.

A kind redditor helped me out.

Using mp3tag, you can select Actions>Action (Quick)>Replace with regular expression and then use

Regular expression:
<[^>]+>

Replace matches with:
leave field this blank

Magic.

Is there any way to remove the lines in Chinese from the lyrics?

They don't show up in the ESLyric panel, but they do in other music playing apps and I'd like get rid of them.

Thanks.
