Hello! :D

Is there someone who is capable to make a Lyrics - script, that reads the lyrics from the ID3 -tag, instead?

I would really like it to be very much like the lyricsplugin.com -window, but I want it to receive information from the tags..

Just a plain, clean window with lyrics from tags, in perhaps a format like this;

Code: Select all

Title
Album Artist / Artist
Album

Lyrics...
Lyrics...
.........
(artist / album / title in bold and bigger font, perhaps)

:)


The problem with "lyricsplugin.com" is the commercial / fancy -things..


I like it clean!! :D


Thanks!!

Just quoting this post of mine:
To display lyrics embedded in id3 tag, you can use one of the following scripts:
Simple Lyrics Viewer or
Lyrics Dockable Panel or
MonkeyRok or
Inline Lyrics (only for timestamped lyrics)

To directly fetch the lyrics from Internet, you also can use
WebSearch Panels with the Lyrics-songs.com site. I use it a lot.

BUT, I haven't tested all of them in MM3. Lyrics Dockable Panel and WebSearch Panels do work on it.
MonkeyRok doesn't work yet. The others... I don't know.

Search youtube for videos

Code: Select all

<site> 
    <name>Youtube_Music</name> 
    <caption>Youtube Music</caption> 
    <description>Search current Artist in Youtube Music</description> 
    <start>http://www.youtube.com</start> 
    <url>http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=%artist%+%title%&search_category=10</url> 
  </site> 
BTW: This Web Panel is so great. I have no idea how life was without it. :D
You know what is really funny: Show it to a hardcore iTunes Fan! They will stop telling how great iTunes is. They look like: :o
And if you also show them Embedded Lyrics they go crazy!! because they will never ever have this in iTunes :lol:
MediaMonkey rules!!!!

BTW: Oh my god thanks for the youtube code I love you
AMG doesn't f**k around, does it!
that panel is defunct for me

I'd like to move the browse button panel to the top of the WebSearch panel
I saw a post on it, but I think it was for an earlier form of the script
can anyone give me a hand in configuring it to display the buttons at the top?
they are smack in the middle of my screen and a bit of an eyesore
I'd love to shrink them right down in size
thanks again!

are there any working versions of these?

This one doesn't load at all.

Code: Select all

  <site> 
    <name>allmusic</name> 
    <caption>allmusic.com</caption> 
    <description>allmusic</description> 
    <start>http://www.allmusic.com/</start> 
    <url>http://www.allmusic.com/cg/amg.dll?p=amg&sql=1:%artist%</url> 
  </site>

This one loads but gives a script error (like a webpage script error not the MM script).

Code: Select all

   <site> 
     <name>allmusic_alb</name> 
     <caption>allmusic.com:Album</caption> 
     <description>allmusic</description> 
     <start>http://www.allmusic.com/</start> 
     <url>http://www.allmusic.com/cg/amg.dll?p=amg&sql=2:%album%</url>

These are working for me:

- <site>
<name>allmusic</name>
<caption>allmusic.com</caption>
<description>allmusic</description>
<start>http://http://www.allmusic.com/</start>
<url>http://www.allmusic.com/cg/amg.dll?p=am ... tist%</url>
</site>
- <site>
<name>allmusic_alb</name>
<caption>allmusic.com:Album</caption>
<description>allmusic_alb</description>
<start>http://www.allmusic.com/</start>
<url>http://www.allmusic.com/cg/amg.dll?p=am ... lbum%</url>
</site>

They are the same as yours as far as I can see...

But Allmusic is MUCH more unstable than the other embedded web sites. I very often get a "Page unavailable"-message.

I signed up for a free registration with the site, allmusic.com, and it seems that as long as I am signed in, the two allmusic links in my WebSearch Panels options work fine.

any similar cases?

OK I will try that when I get home (might also be a work firewall thing).

I don't know if this script is being actively maintained, but a suggestion for future consideration:

- migrate the menu from the 'search' toolbar, to the more logical (IMO) place of a submenu of "View" on the main menu bar.

the location on the search bar makes it too wide and causes problems with screen width. (I have all toolbars on a single line across the top)

Or even if it was made into an icon like the "Add to favourites" icon on the main options panel

try line 55:

Code: Select all

Const optionToolbarAlign = 2   ' 1=top 2=bottom 3=left 4=right
set the toolbar to your preference.

AWESOME (too bad they don't go up the left side)

and is there any chance to get the copied text commented in the tag values of the entire album?
in this way I could look up the album or artist info on allmusic, then copy the text to the entire album in the Comment field.
:) don't mean to be pushy, but I would use that often, and think others might too
also, it'd be great if the youtube interface would stop playing the video when the panel window is closed..

I love all this web interfacing!
PEACE

Thank you very much!! I ended up with the Lyrics Dockable Panel! Just Great stuff!! :D

Recommended!!


Just a question: With all the panels available.. is it possible to view the panels with the Firefox -engine.. I've added quite a few filters, add-ons and such to Firefox, which would have great to filter in MM too..

Thanks a lot guys!!

Nope! I'd love this too, but unfortunately MM can embed IE only.

Here's a panel that looks in musicbrainz.org for artist - title, and returns a list of albums

**EDIT: Appears Not to be in chronological order, if you can find how to sort search results that would be greatly appreciated!**

Useful if you don't have the album info for a song or if you want to find other releases/original release etc. of a song.

Code: Select all
