What's the exact error message? Is the transport plugin "Neon HTTP/HTTPS" enabled?

#3 Updated by Zsolt Bákonyi 20 days ago

Yes, Neon plugin is enabled. I can show you only screenshots. They are in Hungarian, because this is the system language.

#4 Updated by John Lindgren 17 days ago

LANG=C audacious will give error messages in English. That would be helpful.

#5 Updated by Zsolt Bákonyi 17 days ago

Thank you for your help. The message is:

If you follow that link, you'll find that it takes you to a new edit page (no lyrics entered yet). Do songs that are already in the LyricWiki database work correctly, or do they have the same problem?

The song in your original example works for me:

#9 Updated by John Lindgren 14 days ago

My best guess right now is that the LyricWiki server is giving you a different response based on IP address, or there is a proxy blocking the download. Can you please attach the exact HTML file you get from downloading the link in the issue description (http://lyrics.wikia.com/index.php?action=edit&title=Shalamar:Make_That_Move)?

#10 Updated by Zsolt Bákonyi 14 days ago

Files attached. I forgot to mention, LyricWiki plugin was working for long time, both on my machines. ( Ubuntu 14.04LTS and Ubuntu 16.04LTS, 64 bit ) I've noticed this error about 2-3 weeks ago, and it's appeared same time on my machines ( both ). And of course this problem is constant with all of my song ( few thousands ) but before this it was always working like the charm.

It's a bit strange, why does it want to use the editing page of LyricWiki?

The HTML is about the same as I get here (which works fine for me). You'll want to look at what updates you installed on your machines 2-3 weeks ago to determine what caused the issue. We've ruled out a bug in Audacious and a proxy issue, so it's likely going to be a bug in one of the libraries that Audacious depends on (for example, GLib or libxml).

Which platform have you tested on?

Arch Linux, Debian, FreeBSD, Windows (XP and 10). LyricWiki works perfectly on all of them.

#14 Updated by Zsolt Bákonyi 10 days ago

Ok, I understand. Just think about my opinion:

You've tested it on a small ( FreeBSD ) and on a deprecated OS ( XP??? ). Works perfectly. But NOT tested on one of the biggest Linux distribution: Ubuntu. Does XP matters and Ubuntu not? Why don't you try it on a bare Ubuntu 16.04? If you say LyricWiki works on it, i can accept my machines fault. But I can't look after what updates I had 2-3 weeks ago, and I don't want to hacking'em, because I update my systems via official apt-get repository.

Whatever you decide, Audacious is still the best audio player with or without LyricWiki. My primary consideration was to use a music player with my USB audio DAC, without any software conversation. And Audacious does it! Perfect! Just LyricWiki confusing a bit,because it was working for a long time ( I think I used it min. 1 year long ), and suddenly not.

Cheers :)

I'm not affiliated with nor in the business of supporting any particular OS. If you want support for Ubuntu, hire someone.
