 few sujestions

option to show the lyrics without the empty lines betwen the lyrics lines.

and, search options ... like, artist and title match, if no mach is found, show a message, clicking the message open a window to i search artist and song (here can show not exactly names) ...

when i play the song iron maiden - the longest day, he download the iron maiden - the trooper ... this happens alot (with ttplayer he fonds nothing), thats kinda sucks

if you have windows, you can try the minilyrics and see me sugestions working ...

and ... where i change the sites to search and download the .lrc ?

1.your idea is good, would be added
2.I thought this before, but I think, if the artist and title in amarok are wrong and cause to download a wrong lrc, one way is to set strategy, the other is to modify them with amarok, but at least your idea is also good
3.that's why I must add the strategy function for every track
4.change engine? just in right click menu
and, in our country, minilyrics also is popular, but only in wimnap times, now we like to use ttplayer and its lrc show function is the best so far, lrcShow-II learns many functions and work methods from ttp's lrc show, you could try it.

Thanks for your good suggestion.

 Searching All Engines

Firstly, this is a great app, i'm loving it. Makes my amarok much more complete. I was wondering however if it's possible to have it searching all the available engines automatically?

Thank you.
It is possible, and I thought it before, but give it up because two reasons: first you should be waiting until app searched all engines, second this function would give you many result maybe, even useless.

Searching all the engines it's too slow.. but (for me) it would be nice to build an ordered list of user chosen engines and search sequentially on them: search on the first, if not found search on the second, etc.. At the moment I'm quite busy, but if I have time I'll try to help Sanfanling porting LrcShow-II to Amarok2 and improving the core with features like these. Cheers

hi outlikeashoe, nice to see you. i am bussy this days too. and one thing i should to discuss with you. i have seen your test code for amarok2, and i thought, with dbus system, app could independent to amarok2 script system, because receive and send signals could be done by any outside app not only amarok script.
so i thing next generation lrcShow-III (maybe) would not be amarok script any more, but just a independent app, could support other players with dbus system and full signals.

I think that a desktop plasmoid is the best solution for this kind of application and not an amarok script :).

Yeah.. Well, IMHO it's a good thing that LrcShow will become a standalone application, not only a modular search engine, but also a modular interface to the player. I don't know if they changed in the latest months but last time I've used Amarok2 dbus interface, it has a little lack: it hasn't a CurrentTimeMs function, it only returns the time in seconds.

I found minilyrics' server is not stable, maybe it is the reason that the module failed last time. But now, it works well.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
