Something went wrong with your MiniLyrics or embedder plugin installation.

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?

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

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...

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 have just had a hard time re-installing MM and Minilyrics on a new PC.

Basically I did all of the stuff correctly and then got "Minilyrics can't open the latest skins, please try other skins." and "%program% can't open the latest skins, please try other skins."

After a lot of messing about I found that a good solution was to use Wise uninstaller to uninstall Minilyrics and then re-install it. I didn't need to re-run the embedder.

I just wanted to post that here, in case.

Is there an alternative to MiniLyrics that works well with MediaMonkey? Have you considered building a lyrics display into MediaMonkey?

I've been using this combination for many years. Installation and configuration of MiniLyrics has always been inconsistent and a test of patience, mostly with the embedder, but I eventually get it all working... except lately. New computer (motherboard/processor) and new Windows 10 Home for my home theater, that is fast with lotsa memory and disk space. Worked fine for a few weeks and then I started getting "access violations" and "exception errors" to the point of rendering MediaMonkey unusable. Even after uninstalling MiniLyrics, MediaMonkey was still producing the error messages. Had to manually find and remove any files and references to MiniLyrics. MediaMonkey is back to normal now but without lyrics.

Not too mention their lyrics server has a history of being down half the time. It is down again now. I used to just get a "can't access server" message (or something like that) when downloading or uploading lyric files but now when the server is down, it stalls MiniLyrics on top of MediaMonkey and I have to End Task to close MediaMonkey so I can restart it. And now this week, when checking for a new version, Crintsoft's main website has vanished, which is unusual.

I think another company, Ensoft(?), has a product also called MiniLyrics. I'm confused.

You can view Lyrics in the Art & Details window, just enable Lyrics to be shown. There also is: http://www.mediamonkey.com/forum/viewto ... nts+viewer

Note that MediaMonkey also has a build in lookup (Tools > Options > Metadata Lookup).

Not looking to view static lyrics. Want to display scrolling timed lyrics, like MiniLyrics does.

If you start MediaMonkey in Windows 10 and get the message:

"MiniLyric couldn't be embedded. Possible it's window or the embedded window isn't visible"

but after pressing "OK" MiniLyrics anyhow starts and gets embedded in MediaMonkey, then just follow step 4 from this Crintsoft page and the issue is fixed (at least it is for me)!
