Good News:
Genius works again.
Bad News:
I don't know exactly why.
Problem:
It does not work reliable.

I made some tests and changed some parameters. So I switched the standard browser to edge and back to chrome, deleted cookies ...
Always after changing 1 of these parameters I tested Genius each time. The problem was, that I tested it with "Beatles - Yesterday" and because before Genius was not working at all, I had not noticed that Genius also needs "The Beatles" as artist to find the song.
So I don't know which change or whether a change at all made it work again.

So I made some more tests and choose the Album: "Queen - Queen II". This album is listed on Genius and the lyrics of all songs are available. The writing of the tracks are the same as in my tags.
These songs gave no results:
Father to Son
Never More
Funny How Love Is
Seven Seas of Rhye

The others of the album did.

And to make the unpredictable behaviour of the Genius-source complete:
Before taken the album "Queen II" I tested with another album not really systematic. There the song "Queen - Bohemian Rhapsody" did not work. After some time I tested it again and the song worked. After a restart and some time again it did not work.
So now I tested (about 1 hour later) the above mentioned songs again and "Funny How Love IS" and "Never More" worked this time.

In the past I already wrote here that I often find lyrics at Genius manually with my browser that Lyricator did not find.

Have you installed the new Edge or do you have the old Edge installed still? I have Microsoft Edge 44.18362.449.0.
I still have the old one and the same version as you, because I did not update manually.
Edge is not my standard browser. I use chrome.

I uninstalled, cleared out the directories and reinstalled and still the same problem I'm afraid. System is running Windows 10 Home 1909, build 18363.836.
Ok. I am on the same build of Home. Have you installed the new Edge or do you have the old Edge installed still? I have Microsoft Edge 44.18362.449.0.

Thanks for checking a different OS version. All other lyrics sites work for you so probably not a firewall issue?
It is not a firewall issue because I disbled the firewall while testing.

Because of your posting I tested the other sources one for one.
I did it with a song I was certain it would be recognized by all sources: Beatles - Yesterday
This is the way the artist is in my tags, just "Beatles".
The test showed that all other sources work.

But the test also showed that there is another problem that is not related to that Genius-problem.
Musixmatch and SongColeta only gave a result after changing the artist to "The Beatles" or "Beatles, The"
SeekALyric only gave a result with "Beatles, The".

[Then try a fresh install again from https://www.mediamonkey.com/addons/download/626/
I did so and the new version is also not working on Genius.

BTW:
Ich have a portable installation but with deinstallation of Lyricator the files in the equivalent portable folders "Lyricator" and "Auto" got deleted.

As in former times it was a windows update that created trouble:
My actual version is
Windows 10 Pro Version 1909 (Build 18363.826)

Edit:
I tried it in a virtual machine of an older W10-installation and there the genius-request works.

I am wondering if it could possibly be an IP black list issue as there have been other users in the past that have had this issue with various sites. What happens when you copy/paste this into your Internet Explorer and Edge browser: https://genius.com/queen-we-are-the-champions-lyrics
I get the lyrics result. If I look for the same title with Lyricator I get no result.
I can manually look for genius lyrics in all browsers I have (IE, Edge, Chrome, Firefox).
Ok. That is the exact URL that Lyricator would use to find the lyrics. This could be a tough one to troubleshoot. I may need to send you guys a modified version for debugging because the three pc's I have access to work fine. I hate to ever ask this, but could you try uninstalling Lyricator and manually verifying there are no traces left of it in C:\Users\<your username>\AppData\Roaming\MediaMonkey\Scripts\Auto, C:\Users\<your username>\AppData\Roaming\MediaMonkey\Scripts\Auto\Lyricator, C:\Program Files (x86)\MediaMonkey\Scripts\Auto, and C:\Program Files (x86)\MediaMonkey\Scripts\Lyricator directories. Then try a fresh install again from https://www.mediamonkey.com/addons/download/626/

I just tested 10 songs and Genius is still working for me.
I'ts not working here anymore, I think since Genius made a major change to their website some weeks ago.
I am using Lyricator 1.5.1.0 and I did not change my settings in the last months.

Hi,

Just tried Lyricator with around 40 songs and Genius was skipped every time. I even tried setting Genius as the only source and it just skipped all the tracks.

Settings as shown: Image

Using version 1.5.1.
That is really odd. Mine is still working great. The only settings difference I have is I have disabled the Format lyrics that are all upper or lower

Hi,

Have noticed that Lyricator no longer seems to be able to use Genius for getting lyrics; whenever one searches for lyrics it gets skipped immediately. I've not changed anything about my install/setup in the last couple of months, so I'm not entirely sure why this would have suddenly started happening (although at a guess I'd say maybe something on Genius' end has changed perhaps?)
I just tested 10 songs and Genius is still working for me. Please check again. Maybe their site was down. If you are still seeing the issue, post a screen capture of your Lyricator settings and let me know what version you are using.
