    Default Amarok lyrics gone??

    This is what I get instead :


    Unfortunately, due to licensing restrictions from some of the major music publishers we can no longer return lyrics through the LyricWiki API (where this application gets some or all of its lyrics).

    The lyrics for this song can be found at the following URL:
    Tori Amos - Seaside - Lyrics from LyricWiki


    (Please note: this is not the fault of the developer who created this application, but is a restriction imposed by the music publishers themselves.)

    We can still sing them, right? Is it legal?

    Talking about legal. Here in UK they have been sending out inspectors to the workplace to see if music is being played (Including radio) for the benefit of staff. If you have 4 or more employee's it's not legal unless you pay for a licence.

    There's some scripts that can be installed and do the lyrics job...Since Lyrics-wiki was built in you cannot remove it.

    Over here in the Netherlands it goes like this: I work from home, have my own company. If I listen to music bought as a private person while working, I have to pay duties. If I buy a music CD for my company, in fact I'm not allowed to play it as a private person, and still have to pay duties when I play it when working.

    You can disable lyricwiki and use another lyrics manager.

    Click tools, then Script Manager. Click Get More Scripts. There should be another lyrics manager in there ( can't check now as I'm at work and they have free software downloading blocked). Then just disable lyricwiki in the Script Manager and also in the new lyrics manager.

    Take Care,

    Most of the artist I listen to are dead.

    Yes. I'll find another manager. But, that's still a bad sign...
    The end is near.

    URGENT: LyricWiki API changes - LyricWiki API Developers | Google Groups

    Media players:
    If possible, use the API to make your normal getSong() request. If a
    match is found, open the 'url' field from the result in an HTML pane
    so that the whole page is displayed.
    I suppose Amarok will do just that...


    Edit: And a quick look at Amarok forums shows this: https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=202366
