Firstly: I love this add-on.

But I'm running around in circles with multi-artist mp3 songs. Also I cannot find any reference to it atm.
The problem is that these multi-artist songs do not get a .txt or .lrc lyrics file.
Also manually I cannot create a lyrics file in the cu lrc lyrics folder/file structure that gets read by the add-on.

My root cause analysis is this:
The (default) mp3 tag delimiter is a '/' for multi-valued attributes.
It's used and defined in all my mp3 tools (mp3tag, mediamonkey & KODI).

The problem I am facing now is that cu lrc lyrics saves it's scraped lyrics to "%A/%T" or "%A - %T".
And "%A" becomes for example "David Guetta/Rihanna". And a '/' is an forbidden character in folder and/or file names!

So I've several questions:
1) Does cu lrc lyrics support multiple artists?
2) How do I get this to 'work'?

Thanks for any tips from a fan.

odd, all airplay related bugs where supposed to be fixed in Kodi Helix.
could you produce a Debug Log of the issue?
you need to enable debug logging in the addon settings and in kodi as well.

1) nope. i'll give it some thought and see if i can add support for it.
2) if you manually create a lyrics file it *might* work
the trick is to create an additional subfolder for the second artist:
..\kodi\userdata\addon_data\script.cu.lrclyrics\lyrics\David Guetta\Rihanna\songname.txt

Love the script. However there's one thing kinda bugging me. During playback and visualization to leave fullscreen I have to first press back to end the script and only then hitting fullscreen will take me back to kodi's menu. Is it somehow possible to skip that "hit back first"? I frequently forget that and just hit fullscreen to take me back to the menu, which doesn't work.

btw. why don't you use 'David Guetta feat. Rihanna' or something like that.
most of the times multiple performers of the songs are listed as such and not as "David Guetta/Rihanna"

the script runs in it's own window, therefor it will only open and close it's own window.
while it's technically possible to close other windows as well from the script,
i don't think script shouldn't be messing with other windows that don't belong to them.

things like this are better handled at skin level in my opinion.
skinners decide on the 'flow' of the skin and they could add this functionality should they wish to do so.

Hi,
did sthg change to this method of starting the addon?
It runs a couple of month fine for me, but now I can't get it to start. Only from the player window.

log
KEY_CHANNELDOWN is supposed to turn it on
<pageminus>XBMC.RunScript(script.cu.lrclyrics)</pageminus>

There is a method of doing this, mapped to a single button on your remote.

Create a file called something like DisplayLyrics.py in your userdata folder:

Code:
import xbmc

xbmc.executebuiltin("Action(Fullscreen)")
xbmc.executebuiltin("XBMC.RunScript(script.cu.lrclyrics)")

..and edit your remote.xml file so that the <pageminus> button calls the script:

Code:
<pageminus>RunScript(special://masterprofile/DisplayLyrics.py)</pageminus>

Wow, this works great.
Thank you.
