Downloads:  29301
Submitted:  Feb 3 2009
Updated:  Mar 30 2011

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

     Adding to Screenlets PPA.

    Hi,
    I am developer of Screenlets.

    Maybe you would be interested in developing your code under the project https://launchpad.net/indiv-screenlets. Notice that Screenlets 0.1.3 has implemented the requirements check and with Debian package the dependencies would be installed automatically. This would make installing of the Screenlet as well as getting the updates a bit easier for the users. And if in the project, all the packaging would be done automatically by a script.

    There is some documentation on this as well as connected topics at http://www.screenlets.org/index.php/Documentation#Why_should_I_add_my_Screenlet_to_individual_Screenlets_project

    But if you can't upload your screenlet we can do this with pleasure if you allow this.

    Hi, thanks for info, I'll look at this closely in near time. Now I have only one question, how it is with a project universal applets, wasn't it mean to be a replacement of screenlets? Maybe you know more about it.

     lyrics sometimes do not scroll

    Hi,
    first of all a line to say you this is the screenlet i like the most.

    It runs almost smoothly in my configuration (dual monitors, fedora 14, compiz-fusion, screenlets 0.1.2).

    I was also surprised that there were more lyrics available for italian songs, which I most often listen to, than I supposed. Thanx to your facility for saving lrc files a nice database is now expanding on my disk.

    Many songs result with no lyrics, but I can survive! However, I have noticed that the screenlet becomes somewhat sleepy when too many no lyrics messages have been obtained before. Sometimes, even the lyrics I have in the database are displayed (still) for a few seconds and then the screenlet goes back to the tray. Sometimes, it stays on the desktop but doesn't scroll. Always, a restart all issued from the screenlets-manager put everything back to work.

    It is not easy to traceback this behaviour because for some time everything is working smoothly, but I always have to issue some restart all during the day.

    As for the lyrics database on disk, I would suggest that a configurable path would be great (I would suggest to drop the Album field in the name and just have a path to "some directory the user chooses" + "Author" directory + "song name".lrc). This is mainly because the same song can be available in many albums of the same author. This could be useful searching the song on the net, too.

    Thanx again for your work
    Marco

    hehe, I cannot delete them either, so they will be there till end :P It always happens when you refresh page just after posting comment, I did it too.

    Just one question, what version of gtk do you have ? I plan to update my system and probably than I would be able to fix that problem.

    Thanx for the quick answer. Hope I will not reply more than once this time ... :-)

    My version of gtk is 2.0 ... more precisely 2.22.0. Phyton is 2.7, if needed. And I have installed your 0.7.1. lyrics screenlet.

    Btw, do you think you are gonna stick with the minimize (to tray) behaviour when no lyrics are found? Would it be possible to have it as an option? I'd rather prefer to have the lyrics not found message displayed than to have the screenlet swoosh back an forth (compiz animates minimizing, too).

    Last suggestion is for edit mode. That's a great feature but for clumsy users as myself it's almost impossible without a lot of trial and error. Would it be possible to extract this part from the screenlet and build up a lyrics editor as a standalone python application (or screenlet, if you prefer)? Something that allows the user to edit the .lrc file and save partial versions of the file where some text has the time tag and and some has not? (to be added on another round). Moreover lyrics found on the net have often a bad timing (an offset needs to be added) and doing it by hand means changing a lot of time fields (and counting minutes when you exceeds 60, too). A real pain

    As the perfect clumsy user I candidate myself to test it, if you can do it.

    Thanx again for your beautiful work, anyway

    Marco

    Just an addon. Since, as I said, I am clumsy, I am playing at the moment with a separate lyrics editor (karlyriceditor), which works well. With it, I created some .lrc files that are correctly displayed by your screenlet. However, I've noticed the following:

    1) The .lrc file name must match exactly the corresponding ID3 tag. I suspect this is true also for the search on the net, leading to more lyrics not found messages. When I say exactly, I mean also for upper and lower case. I would suggest to loosen the match a bit by trying to match all the single words in the title and searching for both lowercase and uppercase versions of each word. Also ASCII version of non ASCII characters (like è é à ù ì ò if you can see them ... they are the accented version of a e i o u) should be searched, both in the local database and on the net.

    2) in the lyrics file created by karlyriceditor the ti: (for title), ar: (for artist) and al: (for album) fields are treated correctly by your screenlet but wrongly displayed (the first letter of each field is attached at the end of the previous field).

    3) in the lyrics file, the offset: field seems not be processed by your screenlet. If done, this should solve the bad timing problem I was mentioning in my previous message.

    These are obviously just suggestions for improving your screenlet, but I must say that I am enjoying it a lot just as it is.

    Bye
    Marco

    It will take some time to fix all issues :) I make version that should be better in finding lyrics on disk - ignoring case and accent sensitiveness (and I'm open to idea of fuzzy searching). Here it is http://dl.dropbox.com/u/4466860/Lyrics-beta.tar.gz. There is also option for format of file to save, but I wouldn't change it in this version cause I plan to add conversion that will automatically rename already saved lyrics files in previous format to actually set, or something similar.

    And back to the first reported problem, about how many songs with "no lyrics found" message must be played until it starts to be non-responsive?

    Hi,

    I've tried your beta version, but I had to go back to the previous one because of the following problem: lyrics files existing on disk (with the correct filename according to the ID3 tag) were not found and (then) were overwritten by the file found of the net. A pity when you have edited it! I assume the correct procedure should be :if a match on disk (either exact or ignoring case and accent sensitiveness) is found, then execute it, else search on the net (possibly with both versions of Author, Album and Title ... actually the Author field should be only tried not accented ... yes, we have also authors' names with accented characters!).

    As for the file path to save and search, I'm having second thoughts on it: Songs may be different in different Albums (live version, for example) so this may be left to the user. I would probably just organize path differently, like Author/Album/Song.lrc. In this regard, your suggestion to automatically rename (or move) already saved lyrics seems perfect to me. To be honest, the best choice seems to me the actual location of the mp3 file, so that you can just search both the actual path and the mp3 file path. I took a look at your code (should have done it before, my fault!) and saw that you are doing something similar, just stripping .mp3 and adding .lrc. I would say strip filename.mp3 and add lyricsfilename.mp3 (sometimes filename has the track number in front of it!)

    Also, looking at the code, I realized that my previous comments on lyrics files specific fields (au:, ti:, al: and offset:) were a nonsense. What is wrongly formatted is the text you generate where the comment "if there is space" is displayed. About the offset field, please think of including it in your lyrics processing: the sintax is
    [offset: number]
    where number can be positive or negative and it is given in milliseconds.

    Finally, back to the first reported issue, I'm running at the moment a version that stay maximized (I commented a few lines here and there) and it seems to me that it works flawlessly. So the problem seems related to minimize. As soon as your beta version finds lyrics on disk again, I will try the minimized version again.

    Thanx again for your work
    Marco

    this screenlet is awesome but search is slow and a lot of time it doesnt find lyrics. Maybe because my music is not that popular, but anyway, not metal lyrics.
