Mp3tag Version: 2.46a



New Version 1.0.0.19



'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

Very large changes to create a good solution for us all.
Version .10 includes new instructions.

Basically, you need an 'Export for Lyrics' action that exports currently selected songs from MP3Tag. The export's MTE file should read:
$filename(txt,utf-8)$loop(%_path%)%_path%|%artist%|%title%
$loopend()


Secondly, the Export File Name parameter of the Export for Lyrics action is now used as the Parameter for the Lyrics Tool under MP3Tag

The zip includes a PDF explaining how to set it up from scratch, but you testers probably can figure it out from the info above.

I appreciate all your patience and hard work and time. This has been an incredible bit of stubbornness on all our parts to get it working.

That being said, I think I shall cry if you can't get it to work this time. tongue.gif
(for about 3 minutes, the wrong zip file was uploaded. if you downloaded the link earlier than this post I'm creating right now, re-download)

Stay calm, do not worry, no need to cry.

Offered download version 1.0.0.11 seems to be internally version 1.0.0.10.
Please make the version number obvious on the user interface.

This 3-step version works for me!

Additionally I would like to have the choice to put the incoming text files into a subfolder within the current folder (or freely into some folder anywhere in the system), to be controlled by cmdline parameter or ini file.

I'll work on version display after work today. When I download the zip, and look at the properties, the version does say 1.0.0.11.
Interesting babbling that isn't very important:
1.0.0.10 is the same as .11, except for a progress bar being shown while reading the Exported file. I tried .10 on 500+ files to see the speed, and I noticed that reading 500+ lines from the export file took a handful of seconds in which nothing was displayed, which made me wonder for a couple seconds whether or not it had locked up. then the progress bar about obtaining the lyrics popped up magically, and I figured out it hadn't locked up, it had just taken a few seconds to read that exported text file. consequently, the .11 shows a progress of reading the export file.

That's what I'm talking about! Now that it worked for you, we've got some more interesting things to talk about, like changes. smile.gif

Picky picky picky haha. I'll roll it around in my head and come up with some ideas to try this evening.

Watch out to torture the server not to much.
Code some random time delay here and there into your script.
