    I usually get lyrics for original music (which i bought at the store)
    The ones I downloaded from net have all the names edited(artist,track etc) hence don't give any lyrics
    damn these uploaders guess nothing can replace original cds......

    itisbasi: sorry, no ideas from me. I'm all out. Hopefully someone else can help.
    I'd rather die fighting lions than being trampled by geese.

    Same problem here. My lyrics tab appears, my context tab seems to be working like charm but i always get the message no lyrics found even for songs rhythmbox does find lyrics. If anyone has an idea it would be appreciated

    Re: Can't Get Lyrics in Exaile

    Same problem here. I like Exaile, lyrics were working until few weeks ago, now they don't anymore. Not the first time it happened, I'm so annoyed I decided to give another player a chance: Guayadeque [1], give it a try.
    I'm looking for a light simple player that will show me lyrics, will permit me to create playlists, and that's it. All the other options are meaningless to me, although the cover can be a small plus. I don't want a player that will delete my files, or that will order them, or that will modify them in any way (unless asked), or that will suggest me similar songs.
    Also, I'd like to have a player able to retrieve the information directly from the folder where the files are in, and eventually if asked will check against a database to fill the empty ones. Anyone interested in starting a new project (YAMP: yet another mp3 player)?

    I added the lyrics to the ID3v2 tags of my mp3s using songbird and exaile now displays those lyrics. Looks like exaile doesn't allow us to add the lyrics to the songs and only displays lyrics which are already there.

    I got lyrics working in 10.04 without adding the lyrics manually to the tags. Solved it by checking (in the plugin menu):

    1. Enabling "Lyrics Viewer" & "Lyrics Wiki".
    2. Disabling "Lyrics Fly" .

    Until I disabled "Lyrics Fly" I couldn't see any lyrics either.

    Hope this helps someone,

    Nathaniel.

    That worked for me. Had to install a dependency before it would allow me to enable lyrics wiki but worked perfectly after that.

    Thanks
