Hi Miltiades,
I use only non-synced sources and no external files (only tagged), so that may be why our experiences differ.  I'm thinking a lot of the "timestamped" sources built-in to the component may have ceased operation, or changed their search formats so that what the plugin uses is no longer compatible.  FWIW,  I use the "prefer non-synced" setting, and my sources and search order are:

Tag Search
Online DB: metal-archives.com
Online DB: darklyrics.com
Online DB: lyrics.wikia.com
Online DB: Google search

I've made the changes on my "Preferences" according to Your settings, and it seams to be a bit "softer": I mean now it can load some lyrics, but still nothing from 'lyrics.wikia.com', and that it's a pity, because this is a huge lyrics-database. By "Lyric search" it finds the appropriate lyrics in 'lyrics.wikia.com' but it cannot load them: "Load failed".
Many thanks for Your thoughts!

OK, I have found something about "lyrics.wikia.com":
Timestamped 3 and lyrics.wikia.com should cover the most songs.
I hope this would help also others...
Cheers

So I just noticed something, If you're looking for .LRC lyrics, timestamped3 aka minilyrics no longer comes up with anything and the associated site viewlyrics.com is basically a blank page (which we already knew)... but if you use the minilyrics program and do a lyric search, lyrics do show up, so I'm not sure if they are now hiding their lyrics database or what they are doing now but if you really need .LRC lyrics that is one way to do it.  Unfortuantely I'm not sure if you can still upload lyrics but if you're in need of older lyrics they're still there.

Hi,

I knew that my source plugin is no longer able to download the lyrics for some months (and neither the native TS3 source). But as it also seems that the ML database is not provisioned anymore with fresh lyrics since this outage, I didn't took the time to dig into the issue.

Anyway, I finally did it and located where the problem lies. The funniest thing is that I can only revert the last change I made in 2016 when their site was down one more time... ::)

It is still provided as is, with all its drawbacks and flaws (especially the irrelevant garbage results sometimes returned by the database that I don't plan to filter). I couldn't be held responsible for anything related to its use. Enjoy! :D

Well, it's better than nothing right now, thanks :)

Is there a way to chromecast lyrics ?

I am able to stream music to a chromcast using Bubble UPnP.
In Bubble UPnP lyrics can be shown using another app (Musixmatch lyrics).
With Musixmatch I get the lyrics on the phone ... but not on the screen to which I'm chromecasting.

Hey guys,

recently I've gotten more and more into this useful component. But I came across one annoying issue.

Everytime some metadata is edited (usually everytime around 1 minute of playtime, because the play count is counted e.g), the lyrics show panel resets and starts to search for the lyrics again and than jumps back to the first row. This is especially unconvenient for synced lyrics.

There are some tags like artist, genre and so on, I can do well without editing them while listening to music. The problem lies in those tags which automatically change (play count, last played, dynamic rating, ...)

Besides I don't understand why the component is searching everytime for lyrics when a song starts, even if the lyrics are already saved in the tag.

Is there a known workaround?

Thanks alot.

In your Search Order, is "Tag Search" first on the list?

Version 1.5.0 did that, but since upating to 1.5.1 it has been fine for me.

Thanks guys.

Where would one get the latest version of the plugin. It obviously isn't in the post of OP and neither on the Foobar2000 components page.

Wouldn't it be easier to just fork the original component rename it foo_uie_lyrics4 and put it on the foobar2000 components page for automatic updates?

The latest version of foo_uie_lyrics3, which is 0.5, is indeed downloadable from the link at the first sentence in the first post of this thread, which points to the foobar components repository.

Maybe you got confused about the "1.5.0" and "1.5.1" used in the latest posts, which refer to versions of Foobar not the plugin.

That makes way more sense.

Is there a kind of guide how to get the maximum out of the plugin in 2020?

Hi, I'm new to this. I wonder if I can add new source to "Lyric Searching"?
The current database seems unable to find some of the Japanese song I'm listening to.

Thank you in advance.

At first, sorry for my Benglish

in Version 0.5 i have a small prob:

In the first line of unsynced lyrics there are no LF (and CR?), as you see in the pic. Is there any way to solve it?

bkh

Edit: The lyrics downloaded by lyrics wikia.com
