Amarok Script

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.

 The best lyrics script...

 by mikegr on: Oct 28 2008
Score 50%

The best lyrics script that I have discovered so far.

I love it. Tried at least a dozen of them over the last years and it's definitely the best in my opinion.

Ok, it's not perfect. But's the fault of a copyright misuse by greedy music companies.

Well, I actually have a version adapted to amarok2, however is quite "different":
amarok devs decided to not expose lyrics/cover mechanism to dbus and to allow
scripting only in QtScript language (wich sadly means just javascript), don't ask
me why as I was shocked when I discovered this, and still asking myself.

My solution was to transform Googlyrics into a little webserver (running in
background and accepting connections only from localhost) and to use a really dumb
javascript just to retrieve lyrics from this simple webserver. Issue is now how to cache data,
as I'm unsure if it's legally allowed to have them exposed
into a computer folder.

Once I'll have sorted all the issues I'll ask to ultramancool to "upgrade" Googlyrics
with my solution (one lyricserver script and one javascript)

I just discovered you awesome application and I would like to use it in one of my projects. Is there any way that I can acces the app using the shell, like passing the artist and trackname as program parameters and receiving the result songtext via the standard output?

 Nice job

Finally, a lyrics plug-in for Amarok that actually works! Thank you.

However, I also experienced the non-english results issue, the first two songs as a matter of fact, so here's my I'm-not-a-developer-but-this-simple-solution-seems-like-it-would-be-so-easy two cents worth...

I presume the problem (from an english-speaking perspective) is that the plug-in just displays the lyrics of the first search result which is sometimes not an English site. If so, how about a Re-search function that wouldn't return previously presented results? That presumes you track or can easily track either the domains that source the lyric searches or the number of the search result used to retrieve lyrics. That might be a pain to develop but that's all I've got. heh heh There's no guarantee the next result would be in English either but at least users wouldn't be stuck with lyrics they can't read without some form of recourse.

Overall, I'm just happy to have a lyrics plug-in that returns results at all and is in English more often than not! Thanks again

For others who are frustrated with the non-English lyricstime.com results, I have a simple work-around. Banish the domain from your machine so it can't receive results from the domain. Add the following to /etc/hosts (on Linux) file... www.lyricstime.com

It solved the problem for me.

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.
