Lyrics link doesn't pull lyrics

I can't seem to get the lyrics link to actually pull song lyrics. I've verified the lyrics actually exist on the metrolyric site and it says its searching for the correct artist and title, but nothing seems to be displayed. Is this a common occurrence?
Thank you for any help.

I am having this issue as well. It acts like it locates the lyrics but nothing displays but the song title. When you search for something to test that isn't a song, it does say lyrics not found. Anyone have any ideas? It happens on multiple computers, multiple browsers. This worked fine before, and then quit a while back.

I'll check it out. Most likely the metrolyrics html has changed so that the screenscraping doesn't work anymore.

Just an update to this: This one is pretty strange. Sometimes the entire lyrics do pull up on certain songs and other times other songs just the song and title with a short blank area where the lyrics should be and then the '(Lyrics by MetroLyrics)' where you can tell that the search completed but lyrics weren't displayed. This is what happens most of the time.

Good news: I've fixed this in the upcoming release.

Anyone else having issues with lyrics again lately? The past week or so I get "No lyrics found." for everything. 3.5 beta and 3.5

Yes, lyrics don't pull for me either. I thought it might be just my obscure music, but I tried some dave matthews, and it says 'no lyrics found'

It works in 3.6, doesn't it?

Oh, I'm on 3.5. Didn't want to upgrade to 3.6 til its stable.
Were there some changes in 3.6 that would make the lyrics feature not work in 3.5? If so, I'll just wait for 3.6. :)

3.6 will be out shortly (a week or two), so you might as well wait.

I'm using version 3.6 (build 806) – February 1, 2009 and have never used an older version. The lyrics link does not work for me.

Hi I'm using 3.6 same as RUDYSROOST ... no lyrics.

Great application BTW... Love Subsonic!

It was working in 3.6 until just recently. Something changed with the lyric providers service that caused this to break.

Confirmed, does not seem to be working for me either. Tried on a multitude of songs.

It's fixed in the not-yet-released 3.7.
