Check your Add/Remove programs in Control panel.

@Cran and Co:
Only if MiniLyrics' transparency is set to 100% opaque, it can be embedded. So there's no point in placing an opaque window over MM's album art (which can easily be done by changing Embedder.FloatingWindowCaption = "Embedded MiniLyrics" to Embedder.FloatingWindowCaption = "Album-Art" in the script's code).

When MiniLyrics is already embedded (and set to 100% opaque), changing it's transparency doesn't have any effect, either.

Only if someone can point out that problem, what you ask can be done.

A cleaner solution would be to ask Minilyrics for a way to change the background image of the lyrics display, from an external program (e.g. through COM call, EXE call with command line parameter, Windows Message, ...). Maybe this is already possible somehow.

Cheers
Steegy

I just updated to mm3 gold, and for some reason the embedder doesn't work anymore... i doesn't show any error, there's simply no dock window.
I tried to reinstall it but it didn't help much.
any ideas?

Did you enable viewing the panel under "View"?

Embeding lyrics in MP3s

Hi there.... Loving the minilyrics!

I am having a slight problem... that no-one else seems to have.

whenever I try to save the lyrics to a tag (ID3v2 synch, Lyrics3v2 synch, or ID3v2 unsynch) I get a fail message.

It says the file is being used by another process, this is presumably because the file is open (as it's being played).

Any way round this, or did I do something silly?

Since MM has no stop button (and pause doesn't seem to close the file), I've tried playing another song, but then the lyrics change to the new song.

I love the fact that it will save to a file, and I'm really hoping to get this working... please let me know.

Cheers people!

If you have the newest version, Minilyrics will save the lyrics to the tag when you play another song automatically. It will still give the error message, but it says it will try to save when another song is played. Also MM does have a stop button:

Ok, turned on the option to auto-save to mp3...

No errors - interesting....

It has saved lyrics to a couple of MP3s, but doesn't do it to all the ones I play. (not sure which tag version it selected... I chose the 1st two)

....
....
Upon further investigation, it doesn't save them automatically, but it does when I try to save manually - which does produce the same error, but it embeds successfully when I switch MP3s...

I'm using Minilyrics v 5.5.3160

I know there isn't a question in this post... I think i'm just gonna play with it - it also turns out there is a new version, maybe I'll try and get that, and see what happens...

Thanks for your help

Fixed: Save and remove embedded lyrics.
Let's hope. It works fine for me, even using an older version than yours.

It dont download lyrics automatic, i have checked "automatic download lyrics" but it only find if song has lyrics, and dont download them, so i must click on "download lyrics->download" for every song in my library... I want something what automatic download .lrc and add them to song... if it is possible. I have only normal text lyrics without timing thx to use iTunes plugins

You just have to set your options correctly. Right click, then go to preferences. Under "Lyrics Download", check "Auto Download lyrics" and uncheck "Show lyrics download dialog". It should work for you, since it works for me. Make sure you have the most recent version installed. Besides Minilyrics, I don't know of any programs to auto download .lrc files.

Interesting, for example "Nelly Furtado - Let My Hair Down" when i start play this song, MiniLyrics automatically try to find lyrics, and it find nothing, but when i manually go to : Download Lyrics->and click on online search, then it find some results...

And if MiniLyrics dont find automatically text to song, then it only shows her title in the miniLyrics bar...

i have installed minilyrics from this site
http://www.crintsoft.com/minilyrics.htm
and then 1.4b installer whats in the first post
