Mp3tag Version: 2.46a



New Version 1.0.0.18



'Lyrics' is released without warranty or implied fitness for a particular purpose.
This is fan-created for use by other fans of MP3Tag and AutoIT. Now with Lyrics Wiki data!

Any questions should be directed at Matt_Burke@baylor.edu

There are major changes to the .10+ version. There are now 3 steps. Export, Get Lyrics, and Import Lyrics. There is a Readme.PDF in the zip; I'll provide a Google Docs version here.

This tool relies on Internet Explorer being installed on your machine, and may from time to time create an Internet Explorer window that you can see. Feel free to close this window; I'm not sure why the object, which is set to IEobject.visible = false, is sometimes visible and doesn't automatically close. This has been optimized out, so it only uses one instance of Internet Explorer through the entire process. I have noticed that sometimes audio advertisements on the lyricswiki.com or darklyrics.com sites will begin to play on this invisible window. don't worry, you didn't suddenly get ghosts in your computer tongue.gif

SPEAKING OF WHICH:
This tool now defaults to LyricsWiki.com as its lookup; however, per Luctus's request, I have the option of DarkLyrics.com lookups as an alternative. Please review the changes in the Readme.pdf file, but feel free to ask for clarification or assistance. I have also just added ViewLyrics.com as an option, per Zedicus's request.

You can also just use the executable outside of MP3tag to get the lyrics ahead of time for complete directories or specific files. That way, you can just have an "import lyrics" action in MP3tag, and thereby skip the first 2 of the 3 steps in the above PDF. However, running the executable relies on parts of Windows that may not ship standard in European editions of Windows. That is why there is the option to create an 'Export file' from within MP3tag.

New "-quiet" feature to bypass summary window, and improvements to code that may address the 'variable error' issues that soehest found.

New "-nostrip" feature to skip the check for cell phone ringtone advertisement lines in lyrics from LyricsWiki. This feature is to address the missing lines that tappan is experiencing.

Also, like soehest also found, LyricsWiki has some songs that they give 'teaser' lyrics for, but are not allowed to display full lyrics. these are now treated as if the lyrics were not found at all.


Feedback welcome and appreciated.

~Matt

Mp3tag Version: 2.41a



After using the script for a little bit I found a component for foobar2000 that is extremely simple and great for getting lyrics, Lyrics Grabber (foo_lyricsgrabber). http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index....showtopic=62821 . So I don't have too much feedback. But I like to work in mp3tag rather than foobar2000, since I don't like how you can spend hours with that foobar2000 interface to set it up nicely, and I normally use Winamp for my player.

When the script wouldn't find anything, I wouldn't change the mp3 files, I would just run it again, and would often get better, or worse results. But besides running it again, I didn't make changes.

I think I may have run about 100 songs successfully, but based on how it's operating, it doesn't seem like the number of files chosen has anything to do with the success of getting successful results. But I can't exactly remember now. I think it may have worked fine when choosing one file at a time.

If you release a newer version, I'd be happy to test it out again. Maybe checking out that foobar component can help. It's impressive, I've had no problems with it and it gets good quality lyrics. One note though on that foobar2000 component if you look into it, I did have to change the lyrics field from its default to UNSYNCEDLYRICS to get the compatibility I wanted. Thanks for your script, I hope I've been of help!

Mp3tag Version: 2.46a



i'll look into their work as well, maybe bring something to MP3tagger that'll perform similarly. looks like they're using lyricswiki for their data; i may see how complete that database is vs. the lyricsplugin i've been using

i'll try to figure out why it works sometimes and not others more aggresively

the number of files shouldn't affect its working or not, but may slow your computer down is why i put that idea of a limit in there, since it runs a separate instance of the program for every file. i am thinking of a way to change it so you run the program once with all the files, rather than separately.

you've been of great help and i will certainly post back with a new version in the next couple weeks. going out of town this weekend again, or i'd have one for you and i to try by monday haha.
