I thought clementine used the Lyrics engine from Amarok 2 Ultimate Lyrics

That's the kind of functionality I'd love. Unfortunately I think I'm going to have to revert to an old version of Guayadeque as the latest ones just skip constantly on me.

I haven't had a single successful lyric lookup in over a week.
When I try to go to the websites in the list of lyric lookups:
lyricsplugin.com is a white page with two download links
lyricwiki.com redirects to http://lyrics.wikia.com/Main_Page
cduniverse.com doens't appear to have a lyrics search engine
www.chartlyrics.com (doesn't work without the www) returns a result from my search but doesn't display the lyrics
ultimate-guitar.com has a very limited selection of artists from what I've seen

I have a similar problem. lyricsplugin has been returning the wrong lyrics for a couple of months now and the others are nowhere as good as lyricsplugin used to be.

I was thinking of making some tests by simply replacing or adding some lyric search servers in the source files but I'm fairly clueless. I'll give it a lash and see if I can get any of the Clementine-supported sites to return anything.

I will update the lyrics engines as soon as I finish the dynamic playlist support for ipod

Thanks for your help

lyricsplugin does not seem to work anymore. It returns "USING THIS SERVICE FOR THIRD PARTY PROJECTS IS PROHIBITED. WE APPRECIATE YOUR UNDERSTANDING. THANK YOU.

" for every query. Using Guayadeque 0.2.7-1227. Damn lyricsplugin man they gave the best results.
Edit:sorry I just noticed there is a thread for this.
