Issues with LyricWiki Plugin in Audacious 4.0beta1
Following Thomas Lange suggestion, I make the post here duplicating what I wrote in the forum.
I have been testing Audacious 4.0-beta1 so far in Windows and Linux, so I would like to share some of the issues I have found.
1) At the present moment, I was the one who asked for the modification of the Lyricwiki plugin and these ideas have been put in practice. Thanks to Jim Turner for making this possible in Fauxdacious, sending his input here and Ariadne Conill for the work implementing it in Audacious.
However, some issues I have found in the current implementation in Audacious 4.0-beta1 (and I have tested too the github version)
- The most important, the plugin is not implemented in the GTK interface (which means in Windows we can't enjoy it or Linux if we use GTK). Of course in Windows the problem of fetching the lyrics from the website is not solved, but at least I could watch stored local lyrics instead of disabling completely. Fauxdacious has it implemented in both GTK and QT interfaces in Linux, so I guess it is possible to do it at least one last time if you say new features won't be implemented in GTK interface in the future.
- The current implementation has two issues not correctly implemented (sorry for the comparison again that in Faux.. it is working correctly, so it won't be too much issue to fix these errors): In cases lyrics doesn't exist in Lyricwikia, it should be greyed out the option of saving locally. It is not and when I chose this option, in the folder a .lrc file is created with the latest fetched lyrics (if you have used previously) corresponding to a different song.
Thanks for your attention!

Apologies, but I do not have plans to port my rewrite to GTK at this time. I do not even have GTK2 on my system...
And well, GTK support is in the process of being deprecated in favor of the Qt port (it will stay around for a while, but moving forward, we recommend plugin authors to target the Qt version).
I will look into fixing the lyrics-saving issue.
