General Discussion / Re: Lyrics and Album Art plugins

this is what I see when I use Wacup.  The album art is in the background of the lyrics.  The lyrics don't populate.  And the album art is not the plugin I am looking for (I know both Winamp and Wacup have album art but it shows up under the playlist, which I don't want, because that makes my media library windows smaller.

There is no way to get WACUP specific plugins to work under a plain Winamp install.
What's preventing you from switching to WACUP?


There are Album Art and a lyrics plugin already included in WACUP, if that's what you mean

OK....they look like the ones in my photo?  I have not found them, are they installed with the program or separate plugins?

I have known about Wacup for a while, but I have not switched to it.  Attached is a screenshot of my Winamp setup.....I have tried, and I am not able to get the lyrics or album art plugins to work properly (and my memory is the album art plugin isn't 100% functional anyway, as it somewhat distorts the image, but I still use it).  The plugins I am talking about are both on the far right and were developed as third party plugins.

Anyway, bottom line, is it possible to get these two plugins to work?  If so, I'd love to make the switch.

The lyrics plug-in I ship with WACUP already reads local lrc & then txt files if there's no lrc file found after having first tried to get it from the current file's metadata.

Synchronised support is something I've still to look into. What I offered as start with my plug-in was mostly to make sure that the base of the lrc parser was correct before coming back to it later on to expand out what it's doing.

I suspect both of the plug-ins were using their own database for things. This is where things get messy as even if there is a server to access, I don't really have the rights to access it & I also need to try to do things "right" when it comes to using other services that are out there.

Thanks Darren, not surprised either.

Yes I can still use it with local/static LRC files

but other than reading/displaying LRC files, the main benefit of Minilyrics was the fact that it was automatically searching/downloading locally LRC data. (*Synchronized* lyrics) or flat txt files when LRC unavailable.

So even if it was unsupported, it would still find recent lyrics files. Not sure exactly what was the search engine behavior and where it was looking for files but it did work and you could manually search/see/select your preferred version if needed. You could also contribute and edit/upload your own LRC files. Which means there must be some repository on the web, hopefully not Minilyrics proprietary; otherwise some sort of repository would probably be needed.

The format itself ,LRC , is not proprietary and I guess would be the best approach as it was common enough that people were still contributing to the database.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/LRC_(file_format)

In a nutshell, what would be needed is:

- Ability to read/display LRC files (Winamp Skinned)
- Automated search engine/repository for LRC files.
- Offset setting.
- Lyrics/timing editor to maintain contributions

Thanks for considering this on the wishlist.

Cheers,

I've merged the threads as the new details in my reply are helpful to keep (more for me) from some of the initial investigation work that had been done.

I wasn't aware that the Minilyrics site had also gone down (though not surprising with how it had been abandoned for sometime). Though doesn't the plug-in still work to display anything local ?

I've done a bit of research into this last week & unsynchronised lyrics seem to be easier to obtain but I've still to code something up (I really need to get a new beta build out as it's been too long) & it's not clear how limited the potential access would be (i.e. if it'd need each user to sign-up & get their own api key instead of trying to use a shared key & hit rate limits).

As both of the lyrics plug-ins seem to be breaking, I'm going to have to prioritise this once I've got the current batch of work I'm trying to finish off done.

Adding to this thread as it is directly related:
DrO, I know you were not a big fan of Minilyrics, but for my use case (displaying synchronnized lyrics), it was working really fine.
Unfortunately, it was not supported/updated for a while and the servers now seems to be shut down for good (Crinsoft.com is down as welll as the lyrics server(s)).
I also know it's not top priority on the wishlist but just adding my voice for a replacement solution.
Also, if anyone has any decent alternative for synchronized lyrics, please share your feedback.
Soundhound/Shazam offer synced lyrics but I doubt there is any type of API available.
Cheers,

General Discussion / Re: How do I delete files?
« Last post by Aminifu on June 19, 2021, 06:21:51 PM »
1. Use the right-click (context) menu in the Playlist Editor. Look for the "Remove selected" command near the top of the listing. To permanently delete use the Shift+Alt+Del keyboard shortcut after selecting 1 or more files. To keep people from accidentally permanently deleting files, the Del key alone is not enough (Winamp also did this). There is also a WACUP Preferences option on the General tab to move deleted files to the recycle bin to provide a way to recover files deleted by accident or if you change your mind.

There are other "point and click" ways that depend on the skin (user interface) you're using.

2. Look at the menu bar at the top of the website screen. From left to right, you will see Home, Help, Search, and the other general selections.
