Thanks, love your plug-in. Exactly what I needed.
Gege's Lyrics and Comment viewer + Lyricator -> finally can use only MM (have been using Songbird for lyrics).

Would be still nice to have:
1) multi thread (checking several songs at the same time, not only one after enother)
2) checking for the lyrics automatically when playing, and saving it, if no lyrics is available. Not to check already checked (history), most likely the tracks are e.g. OST, Instrumentals; if necessary always can be rechecked manually.
3) Option to select an alternative source / combine sources (e.g. If one source has only Japanese/Chinese characters, and other has it written in 'read-form' with a translation.)
4) Option to change font size. (at least I didn't find any).

1) Might result in unfair loads on lyric server
2) MiniLyrics does this I believe
3) Every source needs to be coded for, so it's not something the user could just add

1) Yeah, I thought about it too. After several hours it looked through all my tracks missing lyrics. So, actually it is fine. And thanks to the functionality that you can continue using MM when it searches for lyrics, I think it is not so big a deal (as I thought at the beginning).
)Could not find this in options, and when playing the file, the lyrics were not updated.
3) I meant for those sources which are already coded - to be able to choose or combine these sources.

2) You didn't look hard enough then
3) That's already in the lyricator options, unless I'm misunderstanding you.

Hi Guys

Best Regards

PS. MiniLyrics is a different addon.

You might want to create an AutoPlaylist that shows all tracks without Lyrics or just sort the main library on Lyrics to quickly identify those tracks missing lyrics.

OH! I suspect OP means concatenating lyrics from two sources. IOWs appending the results of 2nd search to the results of a previous search, not overwriting. Very interesting idea. Perhaps an option that loads the existing content of LYRICS tag for the track under search, then appending the new lyrics found to it, then $user can right-click and edit them together before saving.

Will add that to my own bug/RFE list for consideration. When Squirrelscript returns from IRL demands, we may revisit this. No promises, though....

Hmm... can't imagine why anyone would want to do that! To each his own, I guess!

It is not a problem to identify. Just add a lyrics column, sort, select songs without lyrics, run the script.
For me - after several hours (over 5000 songs, including soundtracks which do not have lyrics), it was through.
It is still much nicer to have it updated automatically during a playback (since it loads the servers even less, and because many songs not necessarily are played at all (for a long time)).

Then you should use MiniLyrics instead.

Well, I copy Composer data to Lyrics so that I can see it on my iPod(s). Very trivial habit for most, I'm sure. So for a lot of songs (e.g. tracks 8 and 15 in this screenshot taken during Beta testing) I already have that info in the field, so appending lyrics to this would save me from re-executing a RegExp Search and Replace macro after Lyricator in order to re-populated the Composer data to Lyrics again. Almost minimal effort there, granted.

The OP had another use case, in which the user wants to combine lyrics found on two sources. Currently Lyricator only overwrites the tag with the current results if you click Save. A user who'd want to combine would have to use RegExp S&R to copy the first Lyrics content to, say, Custom1, then copy it back into Lyrics after Lyricator is done. I'm hope I'm making sense... :roll:

try to anable and disable some of the sources. for some reason AZLyrics and LyrDB stopped working recently. which means when those were enabled lyricator didn't do anything anymore (maybe a loop???)
