Lyrics screenlet

Minimum required   GTK 2.x
Downloads:  29123
Submitted:  Feb 3 2009
Updated:  Mar 30 2011

Description:

This screenlet downloads and display synchronized lyrics of music files playing in the audio player.

Version 0.7.0 allows to create and upload lyrics to the database (for some time it will be used for testing, but I'll try not to delete anything :P)
Steps to create synchronized lyrics:
  • find unsynchronized lyrics (later will be implemented by the screenlet itself)

  • drag&drop text or file with lyrics to screenlet

  • during playing song, use Space key to insert time info

  • save or upload lyrics before screenlet switch to another song :)


  • Requires:
    python-numpy can be needed on Ubuntu and possibly some other distributions in the case of crashing when you move cursor over control buttons
    python-chardet for better dealing with different lyrics encoding, but it's optional

    Set lyrics offset:
    by 0.1s: Shift+Up/Down key
    by 0.5s: Up/Down key

    Supported players:
    Rhythmbox
    Exaile
    Banshee
    Audacious
    Amarok
    Music Player Daemon based players
    Quodlibet - need to install plugin in package
    Listen 0.6 and higher
    Gmusicbrowser
    Xmms - need to install pyxmms
    Any other that support MPRIS API (direct or with plugin) - vlc, Songbird ...

    Supported lyrics sources: ALSong, minilyrics, lrcdb

    - fixed bug in saving/restoring cairo state in LyricsPanel visible on default theme
    - searching lyrics on disk with ignoring case and accent and some bug fixes
    - support of "offset" metadata in lyrics files

    0.7.0
    - added possibility to upload lyrics to the database and using this database for searching
    - reporting a missing lyrics to the database
    - creating synchronized lyrics works again

    0.6.9

    -lyrics translation on/off switch in menu
    -update translation settings immediately
    -safe minimizing (use when screenlet itself moves on desktop)
    -works in gnome 2.30 (bug is in pycairo, not screenlet!)
    0.6.8
    - lyrics searching bug fix, now it should really works, I promise :D
    0.6.7

     One little problem

    The new version works very good except one thing. When the lyrics switch to a new line the text flashes in white. Not a big thing really but somewhat annoying. The previous versions didn't have this problem for me.

    And I'll take this chance to bring my suggestion up again. To let the "lyrics not found" message fade after a few sec.

    All in all I like this screenlet very much, thanks for making and releasing it!

    I still forget something to test before new version release. I noticed and fixed this already but I think it's not enought to new version.

    I'm not yet decided how to hide "Lyrics not found". Make it transparent is easy to do, but screenlet will take much more place on desktop then really need (to do nothing). Minimalizing it like when no player is running need more work as it seems and now it's not errorless, so the more it will be used, the more troubles may occure.

    That's strange cause I didn't made any changes to finding/downloading lyrics since 0.2 or 0.21 version. If you installed new version on new system, check if mutagen library is installed, but even it isn't, some lyrics should be found from alsong site.

    Anyway, I must improve logging for better troubleshooting, or just do less mistakes in programming :D

     Good news everyone

    now there is actualy no reason to support only mp3 format. This dependency was made in first releases, when only searching on alsong site by query based on checksum of the first mp3 frame was implemented. Unfortunately at that time I made more bad decisions :D, so dependency is even bigger, and e.g. saving lyrics on disk depends on this too. And yeah, I never programmed in python before, so some mistakes/strange code fragments may be still present:)

    There are many things to improve on searching as well as on entire screenlet, and I plan to do it.

     maybe now

    Then check if you haven't older version of screenlets package (actual is 0.1.2)

    You should have "plugins" folder in /usr/lib/python<?>/site-packages/screenlets/ (complete by your python version). And if you have, send me output of ls command in this plugins folder.

    this can happens when lyrics are downloaded from net, so if you allow saving lyrics on disk, it could be better for the next time. Now it is the only thing you can do, but I work on some improvements in searching/downloading. And lyrics timing control is planned too.

    I omitted Listen player cause it was impossible to do (without extending by plugin) in version 0.5 whitch I have installed. After first look at source code of 0.6 and later it look promissing
