New column showing lyric state
« on: October 15, 2010, 18:49:17 »
Would be nice if in the library we have a column showing an icon if song get lyrics in cache.
Also would be great if we have a config to get lyrics automaticly even if context/lyrics page were not open.

Congratulations for this amazing software, GMB is the greatest player around in Linux!

Thanks in advance

The column is more or less planned, though I don't have a "lyrics" icon.
But there is some things I have to change first. (I'll also add the option to save the lyrics in the file itself)

Yes I guess I could add an option to get the lyrics even if the lyrics page is not open. Though some lyrics sources never save the lyrics automatically because there is no way to tell if the lyrics were found, or if the site redirected to suggested lyrics that are probably not for the same song.
I guess you want this option so that they are saved, or is it so there is no delay when clicking on the tab ?

The column doesn't need necessarily to show an icon. It could be a letter or text... but actualy an icon will look better! And occur me now that could have an icon for external file saved lyrics and other to internal ones. Just an idea!

About saving lyrics, I would like to save it automaticly. The delay isn't a problem.
