Notice

Please be aware that much of the software linked to or mentioned on this forum is niche and therefore infrequently downloaded. Lots of anti-virus scanners and so-called malware detectors like to flag infrequently downloaded software as bad until it is either downloaded enough times, or its developer actually bothers with getting each individual release allow listed by every single AV vendor. You can do many people a great favor when encountering such a "problem" example by submitting them to your AV vendor for examination. For almost everything on this forum, it is a false positive.

@sveakul , please, try v0.40
Spoiler (click to show/hide)
also "no lyrics yet" text from songlyrics.com are now discarded.
Veksha I've done some brief testing with .40 and am happy (actually, excited) to say that so far, so good!!  NO CRASHES.  And was able to "Next lyrics" through several sources including songlyrics.  The only difference is the searching happens slower, but that's not a bad thing, taking a bit more time for stability is ALWAYS worth it.  I don't have more time today but will be using it again tomorrow and let you know how things go after a longer shakedown.  THANKS for not giving up on this!!

2. The continuous search has occurred only once at a time. It seems that this happened when re-searching for lyrics. However, fb2k exited without hanging. I will send you dump files taken during the search and cancellation process.
I need more info about this situation. I think what you did there is you started search process for many songs at once by just pressing "next song" button very fast 10 times or more. So foo_multisource must process all of the requests one by one. that is why it is searching so slow (multisource is not designed to be multithreaded:)). As far as I know LSP3 will not notify source-plugins about events like these (next/prev track) so there is no way for me to know when to cancel search of previous track. Another thing we should consider is situation when user can simultaneously search for lyric with (batch) "download lyrics..." action and by another means like auto-searching or manual searching. so it is difficult to differentiate between them and cancel search process that is no longer needed (for previous songs that you are skipping). LSP3 source-plugin API is very limited and outdated.
At least You have no crashes, right?

I'm back on multisource version .35 now and it has no problems at all with the playlist and is crash-free.
I hope you can find a fix for .39 as the added songlyrics source was kickin' it  :)

All right, so time for the most boring annoying reply: Got home, rebooted the computer, downloaded the betas, tried to get into precisely where it crashes - and am totally unable to reproduce. Damn ...

I might have gotten it wrong: Is this about searching, i.e. making queries MusicBrainz, or is it about what is written back to files after a search proved fruitful?
It's just searching to get results back. Very rarely will musicbrainz ever have "Limited Edition" or whatever in the album titles.
That's what I thought. This is for getting (more) hits. And because you will get the right hits - and then some - if you cut it off after some whole word, then there is not so much damage done by cutting off after "(" or "[" or "{"; at worst you get too many.

But likely the best would be to go for the full title first, and then a "found nothing, trying to find more"?

Hi veksha.  The "external tags URL playlist" I mentioned is a playlist made up of normal URLs but they have been tagged with the foo_external_tags plugin so they can be organized by station name, etc..  Sergey77 also uses it.

I'm back on multisource version .35 now and it has no problems at all with the playlist and is crash-free.

OK on what you said about the musixmatch results, yes that explains things there.

I hope you can find a fix for .39 as the added songlyrics source was kickin' it  :)

No, at this point, only CISC CPUs of the majority AMD x86_64 instruction set are doomed. That article says nothing about RISC CPUs, nor about any software translation employed by operating systems running on those RISC CPUs. No mention of ARM, PowerPC, or RISC-V in that article, just Intel and AMD x86_64 processors.

Opus / Re: CPU Benchmarks for Opus decode (ARM especially)?
Last post by kode54 -
I think you'll find that for most mobile devices, driving the screen hardware, including the backlighting, is way more battery power than any decoding, even video decoding.

Someone will have to make a benchmark that streams and decodes YouTube videos while the screen is powered off and locked, to determine if this is a major factor.

I did notice several cases where the multisource Musixmatch would not find a particular song, when then WAS found with the separate MusixMatch source plugin .92 (foo_uie_lyrics3_musixmatch) which I had below the Multis in my search order.
I have musixmatch .92 plugin too and it is a solid work. but i noticed that sometimes it has no results when mine plugin have them.
you reported that you had the other way around. so i think it's just musixmatch throttling a particular token because it had too many requests. I checked your cases and they are all work fine with musixmatch from multisoure. try again. maybe change your token if you still have no results.

PS: i don't know what is "external tags URL playlist". i will try to learn about this topic and then try to reproduce your crashes on my side, @sveakul
