Re: Embedded Minilyrics v1.4b [MM2+3+4]

Until the Fall Creators Update, my MediaMonkey (MM) and MiniLyrics (ML) worked fine.
Now they don't.
As above, I had a blank window for MiniLyrics.
Trying to reinstall the embedder 1.4b now gives an error message, as does trying to run MiniLyrics and asking it to launch MediaMonkey.

What I have found by trial and error is that despite it not actually embedding, MiniLyrics can float over the top of Media Monkey; at this moment I have used MM to launch the music from a playlist, but have minimised MM and just have ML floating on top of everything.

This was a wonderful add-on. Regrettably I saved all of the lyrics in separate files, not embedded because that meant my backup was constantly overwriting the full MP3 files as new lyrics were added.
The "Lyrics and Comment viewer" is pathetic by comparison. It relies on lyrics being inside the MP3.

I just reinstalled MM and MiniLyrics due to a hard drive failure. For some time now, I have been getting that same error
"MiniLyric couldn't be embedded. Possible it's window or the embedded window isn't visible"
... but the MiniLyrics window IS embedded, visible and it actually works despite that annoying error message. Has anyone figured out why it is triggered and how to stop it from popping up?

Or failing that, is there any thought of adding the functionality of this plug-in into MM? I LOVE the ease of creating scrolling lyrics and having them be a part of the interface. I also use the floating to have the lyrics off to the side on the second monitor when I am working and don't have the MM window open in front of me. I wish this developer was still working on this...

I installed Minilyrics and when I start MediaMonkey I get the message "MiniLyric couldn't be embedded. Possible it's window or the embedded window isn't visible"
I press OK and when Media Monkey starts in the VIEW tab is MiniLyrics and when I press it I only get a blank box no lyrics.
Any help would be greatly appreciated

Is this thread dead? I too am having the same problem after using this script for years in multiple machines. I have since changed to win 10. Could that have anything to do with the problem?

Something went wrong with your MiniLyrics or embedder plugin installation.

When I try to install this, I get an error message "Unable to register the DLL/OCX: LoadLibrary failed: Code 126. The specified module could not be found." Any ideas?

Had a problem to embed Minilyrics on Windows 10 clean install today.

Running the installer I got a dll registration error (LoadLibrary failed with error 126) and running the vbs script also ('800a01ad' ActiveX component can't create object). Finally I found the reason in the missing msvcr71.dll in c:\Windows\System32\ resp. c:\Windows\SysWOW64\ so the solution was to download and paste that file into these folder(s).

I see this is a old post, but I just started using MM several months ago and started having the same issue described here. In the process of learning MM, ripping CD's, etc., I added the MiniLyrics (ML) plug-in. It worked, but I didn't realize there was an 'embed' window, so I just 'floated' the lyrics and sized them to the blank window (ha newbie!). Anyway, my computer was becoming pretty slow in all aspects, so I decided to backup, format and do a 'clean' Win 7 install. I loaded all my fav programs (MM being at the top of that list) and everything in MM was just ripping (no pun intended), especially when it came to digitizing my 350+ CD's. The RIP CD program is awesome! So, to cut to the chase, I added MiniLyrics again (after the re-install of W7) and ran into the same embedding problem that has been described here. I tried all the fixes suggested and somehow 'haphazardly' got ML working again. However, everytime I restart my computer or MM, I would get the same embedding error. I've tried all the fixes suggested, downloaded the 'fix' file from Crintsoft (http://www.crintsoft.com/MediaMonkey-lyrics.htm) ... (which btw, I had to download in IE as Chrome won't download it without out some setting changes). Anyway, the resolve has been that if I START MiniLyrics FIRST, then MediaMonkey, the embed window comes in perfectly and all options for skins, lyrics, etc., seem to work perfectly. I really don't know what the issue is. But I spent the better part of a whole day trying to figure it out, only to arrive at this 'fix.' I don't mind launching it through ML, and by that I mean ML prompts me that it sees that I have MM installed and asks if I want to launch it. So, I have to launch ML FIRST, then MM works with it just fine. Really don't know why that happens, but I've got it working in the embedded state.

Just to add, I have a pretty large library now. 163,577 files which is currently 1029.6 gb. I have all my music files on an external 4 TB drive. MM is zipping right through it! :o

Refinement of LYRICS location

by Just Guessing » Wed Oct 08, 2014 10:15 am

Firstly, MM4 + Win7 64bit +Crinsoft vbs version of embedder.vbs + no dll file = working flawlessly! I'm REALLY fond of minilyrics and this embedder!

I put my lyrics on a 2nd monitor (so it is an UNDOCKED panel). What I'd like is for the 2nd monitor to also devote space to some song info (ratings etc).

I can use two different panels, but the HEADERS/TITLEBARS/CAPTION is ugly. I may be missing something, or have broken something; but with an undocked panel no method I try can make the titlebar go away. Does that sound right?

Ideally, I would like to assign MiniLyrics to a child of the DockablePanel "MiniLyricsEmbedder_Panel". That would minimize the header ugliness (and allow extra customization).

As best I can tell, the connection between the Embedder.vbs and minilyrics is built on the panel ID "MiniLyricsEmbedder_Panel". But its hard to study this as the vbs is doing only part of the processes.

Professor Steegy? Anyone? Any guidance on getting Minilyrics into a child panel?

EDIT: I have discovered the actual link between ML and the MM panel is actually the CAPTION, "Embedded Minilyrics". This is pointed to from one line in the MM/Plugins/gen_MiniLyrics.dll file. As MM gets angry if I try to give a child panel a caption, it would seem a bust. It also won't work to try to use the caption as a 'ControlName'. Oh well.

It would be, but then we would need the author to do that.
