Minimum required   GTK 2.x
Downloads:  29264
Submitted:  Feb 3 2009

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

     almost perfect

    This is one of my favorite screenlet ! But there is a little problem ; lyrics are not synchronized with songs. It's late (about 2 seconds)
    How could I fix it ?

    Thanks for help, and of course, thanks for this cool screenlet !

    That helps me too, but.. How do I save? :P

    I can make it work with the arrow keys, but as soon as another song plays, it messes up again.. :/

    Great Screenlet by the way. :D

    I found it: I just had to save the lyrics on the computer. :P

    I love the Screenlet. I got one question/suggestion, however: Is it possible to make the screenlet invisible when I'm not playing music? Would have been nice, since the radio-icon don't fit into my desktop. :P

    Not the best but quick solution is to delete or modify icon file disconnected.svg. Normally, additional installed screenlets are in ~/.screenlets. Every screenlet has themes folder, so there you can find all icons. Better will be create new or modify existing icon to make transparent icon with very small dimesions, like 1x1. If you just delete, it can still react to mouse events on larger area.

    As it's not the first suggestion to make it this way, maybe I'll recode it later.

    Hi,

    Thnks for this great screenlet, i've been using it since version 0.15 i think..

    I've just updated and tried resizing, the button no longers get lost: that's good. But this is the thing ... i like using it on my sidebar, meaning thinner than the default size and now i can't find the resizing button anymore, it's lost behind the player combo, is there a config file i can modify to do this resizing?

     what about google translate?

     
     by chriskin on: Dec 1 2009

    i don't know whether this is as simple as it sounds - i am not a programmer (yet, at least).

    what i thought was whether it is easy enough to include a button that will make use of the "detect language" of google translate and get a translation instead of the original lyrics when asked.
    (since there are already some applications using google translate, i thought it wouldn't be difficult , is there any way you can include such a feature? it would be REALLY good)

    Did you try translate some lyrics throught it ? Does the translation look useful? Cause I did, but translation to languages that I understand looks funny :)

    Just one thing.. I'm seeing a delay on songs which are not saved on the disk yet.. I think the delay may be related to the download time. Hope that made sense.
