Can anyone tell me how I set up the plugin to search for unsynced lyrics but have the found lyrics written to the lyrics tag I can manually copy the unsynced lyrics and paste to the lyrics tag but this process seems to be limited to pasting about 100 or so files at a time, so it's becoming quite a project.  (Alternatively maybe there is a way to bulk paste thousands of tags at the same time.)
Lyrics searching: search for this type of lyric: only non-synced
Lyrics saving: save method: save to tag

Bulk saving: select files: context menu: download lyrics with 'save to tag' option. Source can be 'local files search', if you already have them, so download is a bit misleading.

The only problem I noticed with batch downloading (online sources) is that sometimes lyrics can't be found (skipped) despite being there. So I'd suggest re-checking one by one for those missing.

Thanks for the suggestion, I did not have much with luck with ESLyric, seems you have to play the song to have to get it searching?

However there is a simple tweak in LyricsShow3 to save unsynced lyrics to lyrics.  Preferences/Tools/LyricShow 3/Lyric Saving/Save Method:  Save to Tag, then set the Synced lyric tag to:  LYRICS and set he Unsynced lyric tag to LYRICS.

That method saves the all the found lyrics to the LYRICS tag!

Hello again! The plugin is still working really great, but I found a small bug today. One of the illegal characters (the backslash "\") is not correctly changed into the underscore sign as the other illegal characters are. Instead it behaves windows-like and creates a directory from the part before the backslash sign and the lyric file from the part after the backslash sign. It happened to me today on the song "40 Years Back\Come" from Röyksopp. Thanks a lot for the fix, much appreciated!

Sorry for double posting, but I was dealing with a similar issue in Mp3Tag and I was told on the forums that the backslash is not an invalid character. I realize that someone can tag their music to make the advantage ouf of the backslashes, so I guess this would either have to be configurable or a won'tfix. So I'm just gonna use "$replace([%artist% - ]%title%,\,_)" instead of "[%artist% - ]%title%" for now.

Hello dear the Vern, I signed only to report this bugs I've found on foo_uie_lyrics3 not sure if already been reported in previous 69 pages of thread. First thank you for all your work, then:

1) I noticed that even if I put the preference to display "only non-synced lyrics" and I uncheck "Enable scroll" option the lyrics will keep scrolling slowly no matter what and on non-synced ones the lyrics will be displayed already at the ending lines and mouse scrolling won't work on the lyrics anymore to scroll up/down.

Again if I check again "enable scroll" that is described to apply only to synced lyrics, now the mouse scroll will work on non-synced but after you scroll just once, the lyrics will start to auto moving slowly every 2 seconds while it should remain stationary. Maybe I'm doing something wrong (it may depend from the fact that I'm using the plugin on web-radios tracks?).

2) The panel preferences window is displayed wrong and the content is cut. It will be impossible to select and view properly some settings, is not possible to resize the window and drag it by the corners with the cursor in any way, specifically the sections not displayed are bottom and right side, for this I will attach a screenshot.

OS: Windows 10 Home 64 bit
Foobar2000 v1.3.14

I wish you good work.  :))

Is it possible to display always the artist and the title in the lyrics show panel? Actually in some cases it works (because the lyrics author added artist and title info into the lyrics themselves), but in most cases it doesn't. This happens also if the lyrics code contains correct [ar: ...], [ti: ...] tags.

Hi everyone.

This works really great for me, but there's one tidbit which I'm wondering if it could be changed. Every time it saves the lyrics to the tag, it always starts with the name of the artist and the song title. In the past I would simply get the lyrics themselves inserted in the tag.

Is there anyway to change this?

Thanks a lot!

Hi,

I just installed the creators update for Windows 10 and I noticed a potential bug.
When the lyrics tab scrolls to the next line with synced lyrics, there is a rater high CPU spike, up to 10x the normal foobar CPU usage. The scrolling is not fluid anymore and stutters.
I also noticed that it happens only while the scrolling is active and that the slower you set the scroll speed to, the higher the CPU usage becomes.
I have no idea what is causing this problem, I tried to reinstall foobar but nothing changes. I have also updated to the lasted version of the plugin.
I hope you can look into this issue, you can find a video showcasing this behavior at the following link: https://youtu.be/yXWg9-s04n8

Hey,

would it be possible to add "genius.com" to the database? This site has a huge database even for "non-mainstream" musicians. Lyrics would be unsynced but it's better than nothing. ;)

Greetings

Is this plugin still in development?

I try some mainstream songs without success.

Do the dll need network connection or is it enough to allow foobar?

Works fine. What sources do you use? Timestamped 3 and lyrics.wikia.com should cover majority of popular music.

The last update for this component was over a year ago but I am wondering if there are any plans or any possibility of an app for Android which shows lyrics I have saved locally on the phone (from foo_ui3_lyrics downloading combined with my fixing of offsets). The only lrc players I have found are for streaming lyrics or untimed lyrics downloading, not to mention a majority of my songs aren't in their database(s). One by the comp. creator would be great but any that do the job would be nice.

Holy shit Im so frustrated at this plugin. It shows totally random lyrics for instrumental songs, displays synced lyrics of remixes (which of course are timed differently), and sometimes a song by an artist who has not a single character in common but the song name is the same...

Hi everyone,

I have the feeling that the developer isn't supporting the plugin anymore, but maybe someone else can help me.

When I listen to streaming radio, the Artist is not specified in the respective field, but the Artist + Song Title as a whole in the Title field; "The Cure - A Forest" and thus the plugin doesn't find the lyrics.
Does someone know of any way I can feed the plugin the Artist and Song Title in the fields it needs?
 
Thanks in advance for any help.

Ok, I researched and dove into title formatting, which works in the Lyric Show 3 fields. Here's what I came up with:

I test if there's a "-" in the title, which the station puts inbetween the artist - songtitle in the %title% filed. When it contains the "-", I extract everything before it and return it, for the Artist parameter box. If not, I just return %artist%. Same principle for the Title config box, but then everything after "-".

So:
- Artist :
Code: [Select]
$ifgreater($strstr(%title%,-),0,$trim($left(%title%,$sub($strchr(%title%,-),1))),%artist%)
- Title :
Code: [Select]
$ifgreater($strstr(%title%,-),0,$trim($right(%title%,$sub($len(%title%),$strchr(%title%,-)))),%title%)

I know it's not perfect for titles of songs containing a "-", but I cannot think of another way and accept those rare (?) cases.

And, for the Notification Area Tooltip (Preferences / Display / Default User Interface / Notification Area Tooltip), I have:

Code: [Select]
$ifgreater($strstr(%title%,-),0,$trim($left(%title%,$sub($strchr(%title%,-),1))) - $trim($right(%title%,$sub($len(%title%),$strchr(%title%,-)))),%artist% - %title%)

Hope it's also helpful to someone else.

Cheers.
