Lyrics Fetcher

Post by ACDias »

What is it?

A program that fetches lyrics from websites and embed them into the ID3v2 tag. I didn't use scripts because I just hate VBScript. So I wrote this program. I use Lyrics and Comment Viewer and I made a change to the script to load my program automatically when MediaMonkey starts.

How does it works?

When a song starts do play it check if there's an embed lyrics. If there's not, they fetch the lyrics and embed it. You can choose and save your preferred search engine in it. You just have to know a little bit of XPath 1.0. Currently it goes with the Brazilian search service called Terra Letras. Feel free to remove it if you don't like it and put you preferred one.
If you want I can put more search engines. Just give me the XPath and the URL. You have to put the URL of the search engine replacing in the artist and the song name by {artist} and {song} (in the URL like this: http://letras.terra.com.br/winamp.php?a ... sica={song}). It will use the ID3v2 tag to get the names.
The program runs in the notification bar of Windows. When you right click in it you can mark the song as instrumental (it will save the word "Instrumental" in the lyrics). You can choose if it will show balloons when the program is downloading a lyric.

I've tested only in my machine so I ask you to test it out and if it crashes or does not work, report me please :)
Feel free to embed the program with your Scripts (just zip everything and make the install.ini file copy the files), to make your script loads my application just put the following code:

Code: Select all

strProgramPath = SDB.ApplicationPath&"LyricsFetcher.exe"
SET objShell = CREATEOBJECT("Wscript.Shell")
objShell.Run Chr(34) & strProgramPath & Chr(34),1,false
Requirements and Issues

.Net Framework 4.0
This addon does not work on Portable version of Media Monkey, because it needs the COM object registered in Windows.

Added an alternate download since media monkey moderators are taking too long to approve the addon...

just double click on LyricsFetcher.exe
It will start MediaMonkey automatically if it isn't started.
I've seen an issue that it does not work if MediaMonkey is installed as a portable application.

Hi there, This seems like an awesome addon to have and I really want it!!!!!!! But, is there an issue with MMPortable and, if so, is it going to be fixed? Cheers.

I want to fix it... but I still don't know how to do it. Because the application needs mediamonkey to be registered in the system (because it loads a com library from mediamonkey)... I'm still searching a workaround to do that...

Try 1460 in the Beta forum, I think something related to COM and Portable Install was addressed.

Fantastic work ACDias, thanks a lot.

I'm not shure if it's a bug from your plugin or from Lyrics and Comments Viewer, but MM isn`t recognizing line breaks. I need to edit file tags and save lyric again, and then the line breaks are fixed.

Have you worked on another search engine? Like those ones use by lyricator, for example? Thanks again and congratulations.

this sounds good. the default search engine isn't that good for my taste of music (there are still 20% files without lyrics which are not found by lyricator either)
