What would be the use of 3, if there isn't coming a 4? So here it is: first post.

I was able to reproduce your problems, e.g. with a small timer timeout and a big now playing list on startup. The embedding process can now be followed using a debug viewer (entries starting with "MMEMBEDDER: ").
The script will try to embed MiniLyrics (by default) every 0.5 seconds for 20 times, after which it will give an error message and stop trying.
Only if embedding was actually successful, the script will continue, e.g. repositioning and fitting the MiniLyrics window every 1 second (unless you close/hide the embedder window).

An error I made was forgetting that programmatically changing a check on a menu item will also trigger its event.

Just installed it and loaded MM and it worked perfectly. Will let you know if I run into any other problems.


Thanks again. :D

I get the following error when I start up MM with minilyrics

'An existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host'

What am I doing wrong?

That must be an indication of connection problems from MiniLyrics. Maybe their server is/was down, your connection is broken (hardware or software), your connection is blocked (e.g. by a firewall), ...
See what MiniLyrics' built-in connection "diagnosis" does.

I tried the diagnosis and this is the report I get.
17:51:42 MiniLyrics 5.3.2810 for MediaMonkey

It seems to connect. So I'm assuming it's a problem on Minilyrics side.

Indeed. And here's why this happens:

The MiniLyrics window can only be embedded when the "embedder panel" is visible (otherwise there's nothing to embed the window in).
Therefore, when the script starts (together with MM), the embedder panel will always be visible at first. If it is set not to display (View > MiniLyrics Panel off), it'll hide as soon as the MiniLyrics window is embedded.

Just a random question..

Is it possible to tell MiniLyrics to Update the lyrics to the tag of the song?

The reason I am asking is because it will be good for searches if I forget the name of the song.

Yes. ML can write about 3 lyrics tag formats, including ID3 unsync'ed (the one that MM shows) and ID3 sync'ed.

Thanks,

I ticked 'Save lyrics into mp3 file' and 'ID3v2 unsynchronized lyrics (support iTunes, WMP)' but they still aren't updating to tags. I even tried restarting MM and viewing the file in properties.
