How to read embed lyrics from mp3 file using MM Android?

Post by AdikRahman »

First of all, I'm sorry if I posted in the wrong area.

Recently, I installed MediaMonkey in both my Windows and Android.
I have an Xperia E1 Dual phone. It is running Android KitKat (4.4.2).

My question is, MM in windows can embed lyrics in the mp3 file. So, why can't the MM Android play those embed lyrics? Instead why does it search the internet for lyrics?
Is there any way to read embed lyrics from mp3 file using MediaMonkey Android?

If so, please tell me how to enable that option.

I'm sorry if this question was already asked.

And yes, I love MediaMonkey. So keep on the good work :)

Same issue. Got lyrics through lyricator or evil lyrics or similar on MMW. Then synced to phone. Now, if offline, if I swipe right it says network unavailable. Online my lyrics show. WhyWhy? Please advise.

Thanks for the reply. But I think I wasn't clear enough. I know how to go to the lyrics menu. Like @chrisblackton said, in the lyrics menu if my phone isn't connected to internet it says, "network unavailable"
I have to search for lyrics online. So is it possible to see embed lyrics offline?

You should go into Options and uncheck "Lookup missing lyrics". I have done this and it just shows my lyrics from the tags.

I have that checked... Could be wrong but isn't that for looking up missing lyrics online while playing?

Anyway, I have come to believe that the problem (at least my problem) is in the syncing. I put my phone in airplane mode earlier and went through a bunch of tracks... Most said "network unavailable" but some did have lyrics and some even had old lyrics.

All of the tracks on my PC have lyrics (or at least 95% of them do) so it's frustrating to sync my phone and not have those changes transfer...

This is an old thread, but exactly the issue I have.

I wanted to read lyrics that are embedded in my MP3s on my phone. Is this option only available with paid version?

Hi,
Current MMA version do not have own tag reader and lyrics are synced from PC ot fetched with online lookup.

We are planning to introduce our own tagger.

Hi,
we hope it will be sooner than long term.

We are glad that this is only thing you find problematic in MMA.
