Lyricator - Batch Lyrics Updater v0.9.6b [MM3]

Postby das Monkey » Sun Mar 02, 2008 9:48 pm

Lyricator v0.9.6b

What's This?

Lyricator is a batch lyrics updater, inspired by trixmoto's Batch Art Finder and jn's Lyricsplugin Search Script. Lyricator is not for the faint of heart. While it can be used by the novice user to update lyrics, its brute force algorithms are a tad on the psychotic side. In some configurations, Lyricator will hammer the lyrics servers for over a hundred different combinations trying to find a single track's lyrics. Discontinue use of Lyricator if any of the following occurs: itching, vertigo, dizziness, tingling in extremities, loss of balance or coordination, slurred speech, temporary blindness, profuse sweating, heart palpitations. Do not taunt Lyricator.

How Do I?
Yeah, But How Do I?
    1) Select some files
    2) Go to the Tools menu, select Scripts, and then Lyricator
    3) Pray
    4) When Lyricator has reached the last file in the list, take a look at the results. If anything is clearly wrong, uncheck the incorrect checkboxes.
    5) Click Save to save the results.
Yeah, Yeah, Yeah -- But How Do I?

Under Tools / Options / Library / Lyricator is a configuration screen with separate options for Brute Force attempts to find the Artist and Title.
    Attempt All Artists: Search combinations with each individual artist separately
    Fix Comman Surnames: Search on "Name Surname" when encountering "Surname, Name"
    Remove Within Parentheses/Brackets/Braces: Search combinations where text within parentheses/brackets/braces is ignored
    Ignore Single/Double Quotes: Search combinations where single- and double-quotation marks are ignored
    Delimiter Array: A semi-colon-separated list of words to be used as splitting delimiters
    Black List: A semi-colon-separated list of words to ignore
    Cleanup Whitespace: Trim extra space at the end of lines. Consolidate anything more than 2 carriage returns.
    Single-Line Lyrics: You can ignore lyrics of only one line completely or you can specify that is a certain "Search String" is found in that single line, replace the entire line with a "Replace String". This is useful for normalizing/translating different versions of "Instrumental".
You can also choose from three lyrics servers. During testing, Lyrics-Songs gave me some crazy results, so it's disabled by default. The website employs its own guessing algorithm, and not only is it slow, but the results are sketchy at best. Use this as a last resort.

What Happens When I?

Let's say you have the following track:

ARTIST: Joe; Barbara and Alf
TITLE: (This is) My Song, Oh Yes [Radio Edit] (Explicit Lyrics)

Now let's say you have the "Attempt All Artists" turned on as well as all 4 Title Settings (parentheses, brackets, braces, single/double quotes). Furthermore, you have an Artist-level "Delimiter Array" of "and;&".

Lyricator will search for the following until it finds something:
    (This is) My Song - It's Cool [Radio Edit] (Explicit Lyrics) by Joe; Barbara and Alf
    (This is) My Song - Its Cool [Radio Edit] (Explicit Lyrics) by Joe; Barbara and Alf
    (This is) My Song - It's Cool (Explicit Lyrics) by Joe; Barbara and Alf
    (This is) My Song - Its Cool (Explicit Lyrics) by Joe; Barbara and Alf
    (This is) My Song - It's Cool [Radio Edit] (Explicit Lyrics) by Joe
    (This is) My Song - Its Cool [Radio Edit] (Explicit Lyrics) by Joe
    (This is) My Song - It's Cool (Explicit Lyrics) by Joe

    (This is) My Song - It's Cool (Explicit Lyrics) by Barbara and Alf
    (This is) My Song - Its Cool (Explicit Lyrics) by Barbara and Alf
    (This is) My Song - It's Cool [Radio Edit] (Explicit Lyrics) by Joe; Barbara
    (This is) My Song - Its Cool [Radio Edit] (Explicit Lyrics) by Joe; Barbara
    (This is) My Song - It's Cool (Explicit Lyrics) by Joe; Barbara
    (This is) My Song - Its Cool (Explicit Lyrics) by Joe; Barbara
    (This is) My Song - It's Cool [Radio Edit] (Explicit Lyrics) by Alf
    (This is) My Song - Its Cool [Radio Edit] (Explicit Lyrics) by Alf
    (This is) My Song - It's Cool (Explicit Lyrics) by Alf

    (This is) My Song - It's Cool [Radio Edit] (Explicit Lyrics) by Barbara
    (This is) My Song - Its Cool [Radio Edit] (Explicit Lyrics) by Barbara
    (This is) My Song - It's Cool (Explicit Lyrics) by Barbara
    (This is) My Song - Its Cool (Explicit Lyrics) by Barbara
    My Song - It's Cool [Radio Edit] by Joe; Barbara and Alf
    My Song - Its Cool [Radio Edit] by Joe; Barbara and Alf
    My Song - It's Cool by Joe; Barbara and Alf
    My Song - Its Cool by Joe; Barbara and Alf
    My Song - It's Cool [Radio Edit] by Joe
    My Song - Its Cool [Radio Edit] by Joe
    My Song - It's Cool by Joe
    My Song - Its Cool by Joe
    My Song - It's Cool [Radio Edit] by Barbara and Alf
    My Song - Its Cool [Radio Edit] by Barbara and Alf
    My Song - It's Cool by Barbara and Alf
    My Song - Its Cool by Barbara and Alf
    My Song - It's Cool [Radio Edit] by Joe; Barbara
    My Song - Its Cool [Radio Edit] by Joe; Barbara
    My Song - It's Cool by Joe; Barbara
    My Song - Its Cool by Joe; Barbara
    My Song - It's Cool [Radio Edit] by Alf
    My Song - Its Cool [Radio Edit] by Alf
    My Song - It's Cool by Alf
    My Song - Its Cool by Alf
    My Song - It's Cool [Radio Edit] by Barbara
    My Song - Its Cool [Radio Edit] by Barbara
    My Song - It's Cool by Barbara
    My Song - Its Cool by Barbara
If you set a Title-level "Delimiter Array" of "-", it would triple the results, searching on all combinations with "My Song" and "It's Cool" individually. That would be crazy. Don't do that. The song's not that cool.

Very Cool

If i hover over some of the lyrics they flash on and off
It seems to be the ones that don't fit on the screen properly.
I can get some to stay displayed if i scroll the track to the bottom so the lyrics postion in the middle

If that makes sense

Do to all the great Lyrics scripts out there I have all my lyrics except those hard to find ones, so I am going to give this a try with some of your brute force options to see if I get any positive results.

Nice work Das.
Any way to incorporate other lyric sites such as:
LyricsWiki
Code: Select all
http://lyricwiki.org/api.php?artist=%artist%&song=%title%&fmt=html

Lyrics-Song
Code: Select all
http://www.lyrics-songs.com/winamp.php?musica=%title%&artista=%artist%


Ran the Lyricator on the 835 songs that I still have no lyrics for (what remained after running your LyricsPlugIn Mod) and was not able to get any hits.
I know that if it accessed on of the above sites, I would whittle down a big chunk of that 835.

Regardless, nice work. This is a great addition to the Monkey!

Not really, no. :) I tried to account for really wide lyrics, but it's possible I missed something. Any chance of a screen capture? And what version of IE do you have? This is all being done through MM's web interface.

Thanks,

"great Lyrics scripts out there"? Uh oh. I didn't duplicate someone else's work, did I? That would be most embarrassing. :oops:

I too have most of my lyrics imported from messing around with the Auto-Tag script, but I brute forced my way to another 60 or so successful finds about an hour ago.

Where does it currently check?

I would like to search manually if it misses a track so I can adjust the config if needed

R.I.P (Rock in Peace) wasn't found not exactly sure why :(

I hope so. This is certainly the next step. I wanted to get the basic interface and concept out there and start getting feedback as quickly as possible -- in case I was doing something crazy-wrong and needed to turn back -- but I definitely would like to hound other lyrics servers beyond lyricsplugin.com.

Thanks for those two links. If anyone else has more, please let me know. I'll start working on a way to incorporate them into the brute force algorithm.

I don't think you've duplicated anyone else's work, most of the ones I've used (Minilyrics Embedder, EvilTagger, Lyrics Plugin) are for individual tagging. As far as I know, this is the first mass-tagger, which is exactly what I've been looking for. Although it comes near the end of a many month journey, I still hope it will help me get through this last 800 or so. I hate having incomplete work. :cry:

Nice work - Interface is nice too. I second the suggestion to include addition sites for lyric look up ;)

I don't know if you can make this any faster with the look-up. In comparing the speed to what the Lyrics Pluggin was doing this script is running about half as fast.

I cant resize on this computer so i will remove images later

But the difference is that the first lyrics are touching the top of the MM screen

On the second I scrolled the track down so it no longer touched the top of the MM screen and it stops flashing

I use firefox so IE hasn't been updated still at ver 6.0.29.....

Images Removed

I'll look into speeding it up, but it'll probably end up being a slower solution than the Auto-Tag From Web interface we were using before. There are more layers of processing now in an attempt to allow for more robustness. It's still pretty quick, just not as lightning fast as before.

I'm not entirely sure I understand what the "flashing" is, but I see the major difference here. I'm truncating the lyrics in the table but still displaying the entire lyrics in the alternate title field, so you can hover over and see them. IE 7 only displays the first few hundred characters, so the popup is much smaller than what you're getting. Yours is trying to display the entire thing and is overwhelming your screen. I may just put a button on there to get the full lyrics, or maybe I'll just ignore that altogether. This is a batch-updater, and it should be obvious from the first two lines (what display now) whether or not the lyrics are accurate, or at least as accurate as we're going to get. You can remove the screencaps now, if you like. Thanks. I'll release an update that eliminates that issue.

I was just wondering if you would consider the possibility of adding a white list to the brute force options. I have a lot of remixes which are failing to find lyrics. Personally I do not care if the lyrics version is from the original song or the remix version but I would like to have either if I had a choice. Thanks, although it is not as fast as the Lyrics plugin, the speed is not tooo bad.
