I have merged these two threads so we can get all the lyrics related requests in one place.

My apologies to hillsnorway for messing up your posts somewhat :)

Due to the confusion from too many genres of music, we have decided to put both country music and rap music into the genre of Crap music.

I'm sure this will help someone who is an actual developer more than it would help me, but I did a search for lyrics engines, and came up with the site LyricsFly.com.

Here is a sample URL of the song lyrics that come up:

Code: Select all
http://lyricsfly.com/search/view.php?a8e040714f&view=153162&artist=Temple%20of%20the%20Dog&title=Hunger%20Strike&hl=%20&opt=main


Not sure what the "?a8e...&view=" parts are, but the artist and title are obvious, even to me.

Would coming up with lyrics be something as simple as coding this URL into the current lyrics search window in SubSonic?

I think I have an idea how to do this, but would like to confirm with someone who is way better at coding than I am before I try anything... (it's gotten me in trouble before with not coding properly... lol)

+1 for supporting ID3-lyrics. I have pretty much all of my music tagged with lyrics (which is easy, with one of the many iTunes plugins) and would love for Subsonic to support this.

What plugin are you using? I would love to tag my mp3's with lyrics... but with over 6000 songs, I need something automated (even if I script it to run overnight...)

I would be interested in any examples of these plugins you mention

I found something called "Songbird", that will take your library and search the internet, one song at a time to download lyrics and write them to the appropriate section of the ID3 tags.

The only problem I have found with it so far is that it will crap out after about 1000 songs, so you have to select about 900-1000 songs at a time, and when that is complete, select the next set of songs. Other than that, it works great.

Now we just have to figure out how to get SubSonic to pull the lyrics from the tag....

Just wondering if this is something that is being worked on, or if an alternative website/bugfix is in the works for the next version of SubSonic...

Would really like to be able to view (or even search) lyrics...

Hi,
can SS already read lyrics from tags?

Otherwise: +1 on this feature!

Lyrics seem to be working partially, with version 4.7, however many of the songs I search for lyrics on are coming back with completely different song lyrics than the song I am listening to.

Can't tell if it's a bug with SS or a bug on the lyrics site.

Same for me. And as Subsonic can/will probably never provide a premium-class lyrics-scraper (not the products main aim plus possible legal reasons) it should instead diplay embedded lyrics whenever possible. So everyone to whom lyrics are important can embed Lyrics into his/her favorite songs.
As a supplementary option SS can then try to get missing lyrics through its own search algortihm. That might improve over time, but for now its abolutely dissatisfactory in practice and still I don't think of this as an important element on the roadmap.Instead SS should get <LYRICS>-Tag-Support asap (uncomplicated to implement) - everything beyond that is of lesser concern then as demanding users and those with uncommon tastes in music can 'outsource' their demands to products that are specialized in lyric-scraping.

I hope many of you can agree to that.

I've implemented this in my Subsonic mod, see http://dilerium.se/musiccabinet

If embedded lyrics are available, they're shown.
If no embedded lyrics are found, the popup window instead shows the result of a simple web search. It defaults to searching Google for "artist name" "track name" lyrics, but if you have a favorite lyrics search engine, you can specify the URL pattern for it in the General settings, and have it used instead of Google.

I want to bring back to mind this very much requested feature .

I have about 70 % of my songs filed with lyrics in the tag-field UNSYNCEDLYRICS (USLT) and still have to live with a music streaming system, that is only able to show them.
Instead of showing the embedded lyrics subsonic prefers to fetch lyrics from an extern server (at the moment chartlyrics), sometimes takes the wrong lyrics and is only able to show the lyrics for mainstream songs which means just for about 10 % of my music library.

It should not be a big effort to impliment this feature since the forks madsonic and musiccabinet have it implimented since years.

Once again the desired working process:

1. Look for lyrics in the USLT-tag
2. If this tag is not present look for lyrics from an externel server like chartlyrics

Please Sindre give us this very much useful feature.
