Problem looking up lyrics [#12711]

Post by MumboJumbo » Thu Apr 23, 2015 11:01 am

It's been a few days since I've done a lyrics search, but currently every lyrics search I do imports the following into the lyrics section:

Visit http://www.azlyrics.com for these lyrics.

I can only assume the website MediaMonkey was using as the primary lyrics search has decided they want people to go to the website rather than just import the lyrics automatically. Is this fixable? The convenience of just clicking the "Lookup Lyrics" link is huge. Having to do web searches for lyrics is (dare I say it) dreadful.

Thanks,
Phil

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.

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. :x
So: where can I change the providers that are used here?

Thx

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:

http://www.mediamonkey.com/forum/viewto ... =2&t=74982

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!

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.

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

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.

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