Lyric search hanging, returning nonsense

Post by bdb484 »

I have my MMW set to automatically search for and save lyrics automatically when I'm viewing lyrics. This process frequently results in MM4:
  • hanging for a considerable amount of time;
  • returning nothing; or
  • returning HTML without lyrics, e.g., "<i class="fa fa-bar-chart"> Rate Calm Down Aka I Should Not Be Alone by Ezra Furman (current rating: 8.36)"
It appears these (or related) issues have been identified elsewhere, but nothing I've tried is working.
  • I have unchecked and rechecked the "search lyrics automatically" option.
  • I have closed MMW and re-opened.
  • I have rebooted.
  • I have updated to 4.1.27.1897.
Any ideas?

Very brave to ask foreign databases in the background. Turn off this setting.
I recommend targeted query (context menu key) with the Lyricator: http://www.happymonkeying.com/plugin.php?q=300091

I've disabled the other lyric taggers. Lyricator just searches and searches and searches with no results, even on tracks that the other taggers successfully processed.

Update your Windows: Version 10 1909-OS Build 18363.720
I work without antivirus software, but with Windows-Defender real-time protection - and you?

Sorry -- same antivirus/Defender arrangement.

I've updated Killer, but Lyricator continues to do nothing.

For problems with Lyricator you should be in it's forum thread: https://www.mediamonkey.com/forum/viewt ... =lyricator

As for the build in option, have you tried File > Maintain Library with complete optimization?

I had it set to complete optimization initially, switched it and switched it back, but I'm still getting the same behavior, both with the built-in functions and with Lyricator.

Warning: It is not a good idea to choose just one lyrics source and run multiple tracks against it. Many sites are now monitoring traffic via IP address and will either throttle your traffic or lock you out either temporarily or permanently. Selecting multiple sources allows for some time in between calls to a particular lyrics site, especially in cases where lyrics are not found.

I have not limited myself to a single source, at least not voluntarily.

When using the built-in option, I don't know of any way to limit the sources I use, so I assume I'm still accessing everything available.

When using Lyricator, I have all the available options checked.

Hi,
try to limit sources in lyricator one by one to find one that is returning wrong lyrics.

I'm getting the weird results when I run the built-in lyric search, but not with Lyricator. I don't know what sources it taps into, or if there's any way for me to tweak those.

For Lyricator, though, I tried each source individually, and I got the same result with each: it will show that it searching for as long as I'll let it, and it never returns lyrics.

Hi,
This really looks like something is blocking MM and its plugins. Can you please create support ticket or send me PM with download link to a debug log file created using steps described at http://www.mediamonkey.com/forum/viewto ... ?f=21&t=69 in order that we can check what responses MM get when you try to search for lyrics?
