Amarok Script

Description:

I wrote Googlyrics when I was getting sick of the low yield on existing lyrics scripts. A long time ago, I discovered a windows application (EvilLyrics) that had an interesting idea: search a search engine for lyrics, then filter them out of the page. Well, after examining pages from several lyric sites I determined they could be extracted quite easily and quite the original Googlyrics, however, I was never happy with the way Googlyrics was programmed, it wasn't modular and would only work with Amarok. Googlyrics2 is a completely modular rewrite in pure python, it's now simple to add in new lyric sites and modify it for other media players. Googlyrics2 is only the Amarok script with plugins for all the lyrics sites from the original googlyrics (and yes, they all work now and will be much easier to update due to built in mass testing features), a seprate application will later be released which will allow Googlyrics2 to work with any media player. Googlyrics2 currently supports 26 different lyrics sites and can be easily added to. Big thanks to the many people who have contributed code for the original Googlyrics and to everyone who sends me nice comments, I love to know I'm appreciated :D. Googlyrics2 now requires nothing more than a default python 2.5 installation, no more complaints on random forums about WWW::Mechanize.

PLEASE COMMENT IF YOU VOTE BAD! Also, this script is in beta so all comments are appreciated.

A new experimental pre-beta5 is out, unfortunately I don't have a copy of amarok 1.x at my disposal at the moment but I figured the community really needed this update. I hope it works. If this works it should fix the most complained about bugs (specifically encoding bugs). Major thanks goes out to grindi who has contributed much code for this release. I cannot thank you enough, I did nothing but struggle with character set issues.

Hi I've been using this script for quiet a while now and everything ran fine until I was listening to too much new songs. First I recognized that the script couldn't find any lyric. This was caused by a 403 error from google, stating that my machine is infected by malware...

http://www.google.com/support/bin/answer.py?answer=86640

Google seems to have trouble when using it's search engine too much (caused after fetching ~ 150 lyrics in a short time). Perhaps it's possible to randomize search queries through different search engines (google sometimes really ****).

For now just keep from totally hammering google's servers, it seems to work fine as long as you don't spam it with requests, I'll see if I can come up with some work around...

 Slight issue

I really like your plugin. I used to use EvilLyrics a few yers ago, and I've been using your script for a rather long time now.

This new version has some issues. The most important:
It can't handle non-ASCII letters (such as accented vowels).

This will be addressed next release. Thanks for pointing it out.

No, I'll port to amarok 2 once amarok 2 does a stable release.

 Googlyrics crash

 
 by qacek on: Sep 26 2008

A crash happens when no hits are found. The variable outlyric is then referenced before it is defined. Initializing "outlyric = None" seems to fix this, but my knowledge of python is next to nil.

Thanks for the great program.

 Small bugs

Works really well for the most part. It does a good job of finding lyrics that the original Googlyrics had trouble with. For some artists I have this weird bug where it will only find spanish lyrics, even though the songs are in english.

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
