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!
