3750 Lyrics [Solved]

Unread postby gurutech » 15 Oct 2013, 16:30

Lyrics lookup is no longer working at all. Previous versions would be hit or miss - sometimes it would find the lyrics for the correct song, but most of the time it would only find lyrics for a song that had one word from the artist and one word from the song title, and be completely off.

Now clicking for a song's lyrics does an endless "search" and never returns any results (whether wrong or right).

Also, clicking the "Search" button will clear out the artist and song title fields, which didn't used to happen.

Not sure if this would help, but I see the URL generated contains a UTF8 code when searching for lyrics. Can this be changed to match the format used by chartlyrics? (see example below)

URL for example: http://api.chartlyrics.com/apiv1.asmx/S ... war%20pigs

Returns with XML result:
Code: Select all

<Lyric>Generals gathered in their masses
Just like witches at black masses
Evil minds that plot destruction
Sorcerers of death's construction
In the fields the bodies burning
As the war machine keeps turning
Death and hatred to mankind
poisoning their brainwashed minds
Oh Lord yeah!

Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight
They leave their role to the poor

Time will tell on their power minds
Making war just for fun
Treating people just like pawns in chess
Wait 'till their judgment day comes

Now in darkness world stops turning
Ashes where their bodies burning
No more war pigs have the power
Hand of God has struck the hour
Day of judgment God is calling
On their knees, the war pigs crawling
Begging mercy for their sins
Satan laughing spreads his wings
Oh Lord yeah!</Lyric>

As long as I use subsonic and later madsonic lyrics are a never ending story.
It is a pity that till now neither subsonic nor madsonic are able to look for the local tag "uncyncedlyrics" in the mp3-files.

I habe about 60 % of my files tagged with "unsyncedlyrics" and still to live with the lyrics-feature sometimes broken or often delivering the wrong lyrics.

I always suggested that subsonic/madsonic should first look for local-tagged lyrics and only if there is none look at internet-sources.

I only tried on one song so far (that did not have embedded lyrics), and it came right up.

Running the latest 3760 build. Works great! Thanks.

I've noticed some interesting behavior regarding the lyrics - when an artist contains (for instance) an ampersand '&' symbol it sits searching for lyrics indefinitely. If i remove the character from the search box it immediately locates them.

Really appreciate the hard work!

Is it right that in the android app the lyrics function is still not working very good? Do you have to add something to the app for searching the right lyrics? Because within the android app I still get many times the wrong lyrics.
