FR - Adding new lyrics source - www.animelyrics.com

Post by Raltay » Sat Mar 05, 2011 4:19 am

Hello!
I would have a small FR for your awesome music player - adding www.animelyrics.com as a source of lyrics for J-Pop, Anime and J-Games music (the already present lyrics search sites don't seem to find any lyrics for any music of this genres).
Thanks in advance.

You can add it yourself. See for example the other sources preferences to learn how to do it. In the thread about the new lyrics engine there is an example of one we added so you can see how it works. The new lyrics engine allow users to create their own lyrics sources.

Anyways I will take a look as soon as I can

Thanks

Looking at http://www.animelyrics.com/, the first problem you notice is that this site has 5 categories of songs and they appear on the URL:
Anime: http://www.animelyrics.com/anime/
Jpop: http://www.animelyrics.com/jpop/
Game: http://www.animelyrics.com/game/
Dance: http://www.animelyrics.com/dance/
Doujin: http://www.animelyrics.com/doujin/

If we use those exact genres to tag our library we could create just one source, otherwise we would need 5 sources.
But the main problem is that it abbreviates the artists names in an arbitrary way. For instance,
Kemono no Souja Erin: http://www.animelyrics.com/anime/knserin
Entaku no Kishi Monogatari: Moero Arthur: http://www.animelyrics.com/anime/moeruarthur
Shinzou Choukokuka: http://www.animelyrics.com/doujin/shinzou/
Engage Planet Kiss Dum: http://www.animelyrics.com/anime/kissdum

I don't think there is a way to automate that.
