« on: October 10, 2019, 11:46:28 AM »
I wish to integrate three essentials plugins for playing & singing karaoke
1- The free "MiniLyrics" Plugins
2- A Vocal Removal Plugins
2- A plugins to change the key of played song and save it for next playback

Thanks

Thanks for the reply,
I know about these two plugins but what i meant is to integrate them with setup,
Pacemaker is very slow and not totally free and need to be registered with donation to work in the full mode

Unless I get permission & some means to get those plug-ins tweaked to work better for WACUP then it's got to involve manually installing them.

Also I don't see anything wrong with pacemaker needing a contribution to unlock it as working bon plug-ins, etc takes time & that really should be compensated in some manner.

Other thing is that minilyrics is an external program & plug-in from what I remember which seems to be abandoned now so I don't know if it could somehow be taken on (to make a proper wacup plug-in) or we find a better way to do it that can be kept supported with WACUP.

Is there any potential update on MiniLyrics integration?

WACUP's built-in Lyrics viewer only appears to display embedded lyrics, as all songs I play show "No lyrics were found."

Nothing has really been done towards it. I've had a brief look at other options for doing online lookups but the TOS are often limiting if I was to do things correctly or it requires a load of additional processing to get it into something that I can use within a non-web based solution. I will get to implement something but it's not a top priority for the moment whilst I'm trying to drop the need to rely on key parts of Winamp for WACUP to run.

(I was gonna create a new topic, but since this one's already been resurrected for the same purpose…)
Ok, I was going to inform the same as King Mustard: the WACUP Lyrics plugin (gen_lyrics.dll) isn't showing anything (even for well-known musics by The Beatles, or The Cranberries), while that similar one by lyricsplugin.com (gen_lyricsplugin.dll, downloaded today) is working normally, which leads me to think it's a problem with either its internet access, or with the site the plugin uses. It also very quickly says it hasn't found anything, which makes me more sure of my suspicion.
The plugin works normally if, say, I have an accompanying txt file with the lyrics.

Points of note: I haven't used this plugin before, so I'm not sure if this is a new issue or not. Just thought it'd be good to point here just so it's known this is seemingly happening to more than one person.

I'm not sure how to give better info as I'm not a beta tester, but if there is a way to activate some kind of log file, I'll be happy to give more details.

That's it. Thank you for your great work in this. =]

WACUP's gen_lyrics plug-in only works locally using either lyrics metadata or an appropriate local file for now.

Internet search hasn't been implemented as there's no decent / free / nice way I can do it for now that either doesn't typically break the TOS for the service or involves scraping web pages or costs a stupid amount to get access which is why I've not yet progressed it further.

Aaaah, now I see it (and only now I correctly understood your previous answer wherein you said just that, sorry 😅). Thanks for clarifying. =]

Also, I'd like to make a couple minor suggestions (as in minor priority):
- roll back to top the lyrics when the text is updated (right now it stays in the same position, forcing us to manually roll back up each song).
- make hotkeys work normally when the lyrics window is selected (seems like an "easy fix" that turns out to be complex, so... just pointing it out but it's not too relevant).
- maybe remove the "found online" from the plugin description…? (it was the source of my confusion here.)

Thank you. That's all.

(P.S.: Do you feel like this talk should have gone on a separate thread, so that it would be found more easily (by you and others)? I'll gladly create a new one summarizing this conversation if that's the case.)
