Re: [Rhythmbox-devel] rhythmbox-devel Digest, Vol 47, Issue 8

My mistake, hadn't seen the LyricWiki option. Still, don't you think lyrics are still too 'hard' to reach ?

By the way, another question I had about Rhythmbox, is there a feature planned to reach information on the Artist/Album and complete Id3 tags with it ? This is the only thing I miss from Windows Media Player 11.

I hadn't realised that astraweb had gone away. I've disabled the
astraweb lyrics search in svn (who knows, maybe it'll come back
somewhere else?). I've also re-enabled the search since
that seems to be working again.

I don't know what that is, but it's nothing to do with rhythmbox. The
rhythmbox lyrics plugin lives inside the rhythmbox source tree.

The lyrics plugin has searched since the 0.11.3 release.
