### Re: Problem looking up lyrics [#12711]

To fix the AZLyrics issue, you can open C:\Program Files\MediaMonkey\Scripts\lyricsSearch.js with a texteditor.
Find and replace this line:

Code: Select all

l = html.split('<!-- start of lyrics -->')[1].split('<!-- end of lyrics -->')[0].trim();
with

Code: Select all

l = html.split('<!-- Usage of azlyrics.com content by any third-party lyrics provider is prohibited by our licensing agreement. Sorry about that. -->')[1].split('<!-- MxM banner -->')[0].trim();

I concur, It "does" search for lyrics w/ A-tfw. The lyrics checkbox may not show up every time, but it's possible.

### Re: Problem looking up lyrics

When I search for an album using auto tag from web it does look up the lyrics, Maybe it is the same lyric search as mediamonkey uses to auto tag lyrics but I haven't seen it return those results that way. \\it might just be luck of the draw of the files I have searched for.

### Re: Problem looking up lyrics

Auto-Tag from Web doesn't lookup lyrics. The build in lyrics lookup is the only MediaMonkey method (there are third party Addons).

### Re: Problem looking up lyrics

I have not seen it when I have used auto tag from web, Only when Mediamonkey searches automatically for the selected track and its not every track that returns this.

### Re: Problem looking up lyrics

I've been unable to reproduce (on 4.1.7 beta though).

### Re: Problem looking up lyrics

where can I change the providers that are used here?
If you know javascript, there stored in lyricsSearch.js which is typically found at C:\Program Files (x86)\MediaMonkey\Scripts. There are only three in use though : AZLyrics; LyricsWikia; LyricsSong

It's probably easier to use another script like Lyricator which is highly customisable and has a longer list of inbuilt providers to try. You'll find it here:

It's all a bit hit and miss at the moment as I think the lyrics sites get a lot of traffic at times and need to shape it to meet their overheads - higher volume means higher hosting cost!

### Re: Problem looking up lyrics

I am seeing this as well, Using 4.1.6.17.24

### Re: Problem looking up lyrics

Same problem for me. But it does not appear on every lookup, just on some specific. Try Radiohead Amnesiac "I might be wrong". Other tracks from the same album do work properly.
I suspect some of the lyrics providers that are used by the built in lyrics search just deliver the text "Visit http://www.azlyrics.com for these lyrics." instead of the lyrics.
So: where can I change the providers that are used here?

Thx

### Re: Problem looking up lyrics

I'm on version 4.1.6.1736, which appears to be the most current free version. I poked around looking for a way to post a screenshot I have stored on my local computer, but only see a way to post a URL or online image. Basically, I click the "Lookup Lyrics" link that display on the album cover image, and get the text "Visit www.azlyrics.com for these lyrics." in the lyrics section of the tag.

I did find that some lyric lookups were working, but others gave me the above message.

What version are you using?
I've never heard of this (can you post a screenshot)?
