thanks!

anyone interested to have it scrolling?what skins are supporting the lyrics button?

I am new to lyrics script and so far I only saw Transparency and PM3.HD have a lyrics button.

great! thanx a bunch for fixing this!!

Amet Wrote:anyone interested to have it scrolling?

would it make sense? there's no way to sync the scrollspeed to the song, so for some songs it'll scroll too fast and for others it will scroll too slow.

just a thought. ;-)

one question, the old lyrics script was using a textbox (id=100) to display the lyrics but your new script seems to be using a list (id=110)?

the benefit of using a textbox control is that long lines of text will automatically continue on the next line when they exceed the <width> value.

Awesome work Zeljko...thanks very much!

Also the lyrics don't seem to be saving to the HD. every time you start the same song it pulls the lyrics from online. Can you get it to save to the directory the settings have setup for it?

A SIDE OPTION: Can you make it scrape all songs and pull all lyrics one time!?!?!
THAT would be amazing!

New, fixed version http://opensubtitles-osd.googlecode.com/files/XBMCLyrics_1.7.4.zip

@Ronie

using ID 100 now and no scroling Smile

OT, why cant we select the script path under skin settings --> scripts? It seems to be the problem in the latest builds.

@detroitdr

saving to file now, please test and let me know

I am not sure who is maintaining this on SVN repo but it wouldnt be a bad idea to update it there. I can commit there but I wouldnt want to piss off the original developers Smile

EDIT: I just looked and this is not in SVN repo Sad , it is hosted at http://code.google.com/p/xbmc-scripting/

no problem on my end using r23802, i'll update xbmc in a bit to see if it's an issue in newer builds.

working fine again on my end. :-)

would that be an issue? the svn repo installer will also download scripts from xbmc-scripting. i guess you could contact one of the maintainers for commit access?

the problem on my end is that I dont see the root folder, Macintosh drive on Mac, so I cant select Home/scripts folder to get to it.

I edited guisettings.xml to add the path to script.

Thanks for the confirmation

I know, I could always add it to "xbmc-addons" but it was nuka's project on xbmc-scripting and I wouldnt want to piss him off.I will send him a PM and find out.

Cheers

i'm not having any issues with 23975 either.
it might be an apple only thing.

i've seen a similar report here.

Amet: Yes saving is working again. Thank-you

Amet and All: Does anyone know of an application (or Amet can you do the following) that will scrap ALL my music and get the lyrics for it in one session. Going into every song on 200 albums in and out and in and out is a LOT of time....

Anyone??

XBMC Lyrics isn't working for me on an Xbox. I start to play a song; I select xbmclyrics; and the lyrics bubble pops up where the text should be, but doesn't display the text. It shows how many pages there are and the song name but that's it. Any ideas?

It would need to be a different script, I am just helping with this ATM , I wouldnt want to start adding features. besides it heavily relies on info tags for a name of the song and the artist, I will look into this...

when you play a song just push the button and it will download, I dont understand what you mean by "in and out and in and out".

The only thing you are going to archive with batch download is that you dont need the internet connection later to display the lyrics.

or maybe I am not understanding what you want to achieve Sad

does it save the file? is there anything in the file?
what skin are you on, maybe its just not displaying correctly.

It saves the file, but there's no text within the file. I'm using PM3, but if it's not even saving the lyrics properly, that would imply a script problem. Any other ideas?

Post the log, let me see if it crashes somewhere.

is that happening with all the songs or just that one? what is the song?
