After my first Web Source Script [WS] Tunebat and working on knowledge of regular expressions, I decided to create a new script and start a new thread to improve a web script for the best lyrics web source.
I've been working on trying to search on genius.com songs by artist and title and get a dialog to select the best option. It has been impossible for me to get search results, so I've seen it is better to try your luck and access directly to a web address. Maybe one day I develop a search script.
To access Genius Lyrics you now have only one option:
Lyrics by Direct URL: The script brings forward an optional fully qualified URL, and you can change or find it using a web browser and copy/paste the url in input dialog. It uses a script, developed by Ouargi, to remove some forbidden characters from titles and artists.
Genius.com is a server difficult to work on, because it can answer the request using two different formats. The script supports both answers, so: Enjoy my work
