[RELEASE] xbmclyrics script - automatically grabs lyrics online
#31
this is a great script, the new feature really topped it off. it's hard to think of anything you could possibly add though. i suppose if you wanted to go all out you could add support for other lyrics sites if no results are found, but it's not really needed.
#32
works fine
#33
i got a couple features you can add.......how about a manual song look up feature, similar to how xbmc look up album info, if it finds no matches to the song you can enter the song manually and try again. maybe the ability to search another website if no match found (http://www.leoslyrics.com); but im guessing this would slow down the script. if one website was set as primary and another secondary it wouldn't be so bad. i know nothing about python so ill let you do your thing :agree: . other than this, the script would be perfect (it seems bug free!Wink

this script rocks, no pun intended.
For python coding questions first see http://mirrors.xbmc.org/docs/python-docs/

i continuesly get an error message that says:

"unusual page layout, no parsing built in yet..."

i looked at the code tried a few times, playing around with it, i made sure i had a song playing before running script, and of course internet is working w/no port blocks or other firewall oddities.

any ideas?

>> update >>
i followed one of the links in the python script it said servers were updating, anyone able to verify this?
#36
now it should be working again...
#37
why not create somekind of cache on the hd? where the lyrics already played are stored. when the same music is played again, the script just checks the cache and load the lyric from there?

sure, go ahead :p

seriously, it's a very nice idea but i'm busy with a more important script project right now (most of you know about it i'm sure), besides i got multiple exams coming up very soon. i will put it on the to-do, but you're better off if someone else took the challenge as i won't be able to add for quite a while.

thanks for the suggestion.

importerror: no module named tdb

sorry, i forgot the call for that module. just remove it from the import line or download this new package:

#42
works fine, it's a great improvement when you carry your xbox to somebody without internet connection


what i like to suggest is a function to manually search for a song if it is not found
#43

Great Success!
#44
