Hi ! This is my first post here, not quite sure if this is the place to post this or if I could (should) have directly created an issue but I wanted to know if any one had any replacement in mind for LyricWiki which closed on the 21st of september (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LyricWiki). The most recent post I've seen about LyricWiki is the one about the LRC files about one year and a half ago. I'd love to read what you think about that and to take part in it if there's anything I can do.

I'm also interested in this topic. Is there a way to modify the source and maybe select another lyrics site as AZ lyrics or so whatever? I guess the choice could be made on the basis of licence agreements.

The Qt lyrics plugin for Audacious 4.x already supports several providers.
So adding other sites should be possible. Patches / Pull requests are welcome. :)

Thomas, how do we use the lyricwiki.cc file? I have Debian testing, so audacious 4.0.4, but in Settings-Plugins I don't see a way to add a plugin or modify the LyricWiki Plugin and there seems to be some verbiage in ~/.config/audacious/plugin-registry about the lyrics plugin, but I can't quite make sense of it.

Do we compile the file somehow? Wait for the qt version of audacious?
audacious is my favorite music player, I've been a fan since I switched from xmms many years ago, but I miss the lyrics plugin.

Interesting, Debian compiles Audacious with Qt and GTK support but patched the default to GTK again.
That means you can use the Qt version by executing "audacious -Q".
There you can configure the plugin to use "lyrics.ovh" instead of "LyricWiki".
I hope this workaround is good enough for you.
Adding support for other sites can only be done by developers.
