Could anyone please attach the latest known version to check it out, since the site is down ATM?
I guess I could upload it somewhere but... what for? When the site is down the plugin is useless.

Anyway, it's back now.

Is there any way to just write the lyrics in a plain text file and not the file's metadata...?

LyricsDB discussion

Reply #577
Not with this plugin, AFAIK.

You can maybe write to tags, export to file (should be possible with foo_utils) and then remove tags.

Ok Alessandro thank you very much.
Seems like "a lot of work" (not really ) but I think it might be the winning combo, as I wasn't able to find a useable standalone app, except for a Linux script that I'm yet to try

Bummer... it only allows export of one lyric at a time, or in general, into one file at a time, which means I'd have to run the command 1000 times for 1000 metatagg'd files...

Id like to partivipate and register, but thourgh the components in the preferences, its not possible... The only accessable menupoints are down there, update, install, etc. Clicking on the lyricsdb just opens a window telling me about the website.
What am I doing wrong?^^

Im using Foobar2000 v1.1.1

Lyricsdb has suddenly stopped tagging multiple tracks with lyrics.  If I select several tracks and use the "get from db" command, I will be shown the lyrics as always, and I'll click the "Apply to all (this session)" checkbox as always, but only the first selected item will be tagged.  It used to run through all the selected tracks and tag them all.  I did not change anything in my system AFAIK.  It just stopped tagging anything but the first track a few days ago.  I have restarted foobar and my computer.  I tried upgrading Foobar from 1.0.3 to 1.1.5 (current), and this had no effect.

Any idea what happened?  Is this happening to anyone else?  This is a pretty critical problem for me.  I need to be able to set the thing to tag dozens if tracks and walk away while it does so.  I can't go one track at a time though everything I add to my library.  Hoping there's an answer and a fix.  Thanks!

Same on my system (probably since my foobar upgrade to 1.1.5.)
I switched to Lyrics Grabber 2, which is still mentioned under "Repeated crash reports" though.
It is ten times slower, but I get way more lyrics.

at last i found ... why it happen... because my IE are in offline mode that is reason why it never try to send DNS query packet
after it found IE was in offline mode... while foobar work fine because it don't care IE are offline mode or not...
( i don't know what cause my IE gone offline mode because i mainly use Chrome ... i found this by accident. )

Thanks for Great plugin.

Kinda. It's under some stress due to heavy load having this days.
The server needs some upgrade, software and hardware both. Hope we'll see results this week.

Hi, all!
I have a problem with exporting lyrics to database.
I can import from db, i have registered from plugin, and accepts my logn and pass. But...
When i'm trying to "export to db" my lyrics, plugin shows "exporting lyrics.." window in which "cancel" button changes on "close" after some time, but progress bar does'nt moves and it label stays [0/1] (if i'm trying to export lyrics from one file). Looks like upload does'nt happen.
Web interface on site tells me: "stats for {my_login}: empty set" too.
Maybe it's encoding problem? I'm trying to upload lyrics in cyrillic (i'm russian user).
Can anyone help me?

LyricsDB discussion

Reply #589
Yes, see the issue, I think you can try again. Fixed a little bug with encoding while exporting, thanx.

By the way we have some news here: the major server upgrade is in beta-testing mode right now. I think I will post about it in a day or two.

Thanks, it works now!
Kind of...

Looks like all (well, I only checked 3 or 4) recently uploaded lyrics are not correctly handling the carriage return: can you check that dug?

FYI, editing the incorrect lyric and pasting my tag in the text area works, so it's probably only related to uploading.

So, great news everyone.

Faster then never ever before!

LyricsDB served more than 50’000’000 requests since it was started 6 years ago.

LyricsDB is now experiencing like 10-20 times more load activity so I was forced to take some counter measures.

Changes I have been busy with last month
1. Main changes affected LEP-server. I have completely redone server part of lyricsdb. It’s in python now.
2. Server’s OS and database software were upgraded.
3. Some minor changes affected web.

Important notice: LyricsDB now accepts paypal and flatter donations. You can find links on about page.

The server is still in testing mode so I will concentrate on fixing bugs, we have plenty of them.
Then I am thinking about major changes in LEP protocol and foo_lyricsdb plug-in upgrade. May be new hosting.

Why on some songs under Metadata am i getting <UNSYNCEDLYRICS> showing (as an entry field) but other song files its not there? Even tho these songs have had Lyrics saved to the song the same method as other tracks?

Basically, same method to apply lyrics to songs (Tag&Rename) yet foobar is not displaying lyrics in Text Display ($if2(%unsynced lyrics%,No lyrics available)) and i discovered the songs that werent showing lyrics didnt have <UNSYNCEDLYRICS> in the metadata field.

Keep up the good work with LyricsDP. I am currently adding all the lyrics of songs in my library that are missing in the database. Hope to see this supported, and will donate to help keep this going.

I can't seem to download lyrics using lyricsDB anymore; any ideas?

LyricsDB discussion

Reply #598
I added that and it did nothing, so I deleted the "foo_uie_lyrics" and that just turned the whole panel grey. It doesn't seem to be using the news lyrics3
