[WS] Import lyrics from websites


I'm just starting to get the hang of using this program, so perhaps I'm doing something wrong, but...

Using the Magistrix source for lyrics, is it not possible to get more than the first fifty results? For instance, I was trying to snatch the lyrics for "Awake" by Josh Groban, but the first fifty results end in the D's.


Yes the limit currently is 50. The site allows 100 maximum.
You can change it to 100 if you open the file in a text editor and search for pagelen=50 and change it to pagelen=100
I can also make a version that searches by title and artist which should give more accurate results.


I suggest to make a small change in the file "Lyrics#magistrix.src":




Thank you, both. I appreciate it. :slight_smile:


The script for Sing365.com doesn't seem to be working anymore. I removed the :8080 part from the search URL, but... whenever I get results, it says "UNSYNCEDLYRICS "


Update for sing365


I'm apparently not understanding how this one works, or I've got something setup wrong...

I've installed the Sing365 .src so far and added UNSYNCHEDLYRICS to my tag panel but when I use the web source I only get the very first line, usually the writer credits, not the full lyrics.


Again update for sing365

Talyn, please download it again, it wasn't working properly any more.


I can't seem to get any results from either sing365 or Magistrix anymore. Actually, none of the lyrics sources available here on the forum seem to work for me at all... :frowning:


Yep... i have same problem.... :frowning: :frowning:


I have a problem with the Lyric Wiki script, and I'm not sure how to correct it.

It's from Dano and I downloaded it last week

It seems to find the song lyrics OK but they don't appear in the "Additional Information" box in the "Adjust Tag Information" form.

I know that it's finding the lyrics I'm after because when I click the link to "This album on Lyric Wiki" it displays the XML file

Any help greatly appreciated



Lyrics Wiki script needs at least Mp3tag v2.42a


Yep. Downloaded 2.42c and working fine. Thanks very much!




I want to unterstand the "Lyrics#leoslyrics.src" and there are 2 things I don´t understand.

  1. What does "regexpreplace " " "\r\n""?
  2. Why mp3tag reads the two spaces as a newline?

(I think \r\n are symbols for newline. Probably there is a connection between these two questions.)



I'm not sure how the scripting works, but is it possible to be able to grab lyrics from http://www.ohhla.com/? There is no search function, so perhaps it is not doable. However, if it is possible, I would greatly appreciate it.
Thanks for all of your work.



Should be simple work for the src coders.
On http://www.ohhla.com there are some directory pages with lists of artists:
#: http://www.ohhla.com/all.html#xx
a: http://www.ohhla.com/all.html#a
b: http://www.ohhla.com/all.html#b
c: http://www.ohhla.com/all.html#c
d: http://www.ohhla.com/all.html#d
e: http://www.ohhla.com/all.html#e
f: http://www.ohhla.com/all.html#f
g: http://www.ohhla.com/all.html#g
h-o: http://www.ohhla.com/all_two.html
p-z: http://www.ohhla.com/all_three.html

Once you have found an artist that exists you can build the accesspath to the artist:
... then to the album:
... then to the text file:
Get the textfile and ready.



Thanks DetlevD for looking into the directory structure. Hopefully this can be programmed for all of us hip hop fans (however many there are).



LyricsWiki seems to no longer support Web Source Scripts:

"Unfortunately, due to licensing restrictions from some of the major music publishers we can no longer return lyrics through the LyricWiki API (where this application gets some or all of its lyrics).

The lyrics for this song can be found at the following URL:
some url

(Please note: this is not the fault of the developer who created this application, but is a restriction imposed by the music publishers themselves.)"

Currently I'm having no luck with any of the available lyrics script.s :frowning:


I made an update for lw, now it's uploaded.


Unfortunately the darklyrics script is not working properly...

It is a really helpful script and it works perfectly sometimes, for example the band Blind Guardian, but with others it doesn't, like Grave Digger or Annihilator, even though the lyrics are on the website and when I click on "This album on Darklyrics" it redirects me to the correct page. It shows under additional information: UNSYNCEDLYRICS .
