I know this is an old thread, but can you please advise which site(s) MediaMonkey uses to pull lyrics from? I've gotten some _VERY_ bad results, and would like to either update them (if possible) at the source, or flag them for removal, as they're so horribly wrong.

There are also many cases where only half the lyrics are pulled in, and it'd be good to update those sites with the full lyrics, or try to determine why only half show up as there seems to be no pattern to them.

I still love MediaMonkey... keeps getting better and better and better...
Just want to help out a bit myself. :)

Thank you!

Minilyrics works with FLAC. It doesn't save to tag, but you can save as a text or lrc file.

Tools > Advanced Tag Management > Synchronize Tags saves tags for the selected files.

Saving lyrics

by zephyr » Thu Jun 25, 2015 10:22 am

hi, sorry for asking same q twice but, re non-library content, are there no save metadata options? (just checking)
q2, re saving metadata (library content, eg flac lyrics via mm), is there a way of calling the save/embed metadata function, as oppose to enabling the ALWAYS save option?

I'd like to use minilyrics, and use MM's when FLAC is being played, and call the 'save lyrics' function on-demand, if poss...

thanks!

Using minilyics getting better results... problem is FLAC content isn't supported, so I'm using MM native lookup lyrics.

This is not library content, so is there any way of saving lyric metadata (songs played from my computer node).


If library (FLAC) content is played, is the only way of saving the lyrics by enabling find & save all missing?

excuse my ignorance :)

thanks again

Hi, just spotted this awesome new feature, trying with new Modest Mouse album, it's embedding the string "Visit http://www.azlyrics.com for these lyrics."

Is this because the lyrics aren't listed? Is there any config options for adding other lyric sources/sites?


THANKS!!

As for plug ins, don't seem to work too.

I finally managed to install minilyrics. The result - nothing. Once it showed an artist name in huge letters on my screen, outside of program.

How to make it work? After a few more restarts it started working, but it doesn't work with mediamonkey. It's a separate program and I changed to sve lyrics to tags but they still don't show up in mediamonkey.
When an outside program updates tags of some file you need to rescan it in MediaMonkey to import the new tags. You can do it by turning on the continuous scan or rescanning at File > Add/rescan

Just replaced my mediamonkey with beta (1635) of MediaMonkey 4.1. Absolutely love the new version!! The lyrics lookup works great!
Thanks guys!

You'll need to enable the option under Tools > Options > Library and set Art & Details to show Lyrics (right click on it and select Choose Fields). If Art & Details is set to Now Playing it will automatically lookup lyrics for the playing song. Set it to Selected and it will do it for the selected song.
Does it also embed the lyric in the metadata? so that it can be viewed offline.

Lyrics fetcher works pretty well, but as lowlander says, it only download the lyrics on play.
