Hey Fabio, Your program is

Hey Fabio,

Your program is very usefull!
Nevertheless there is a problem, which every german user like me knows:
The program doesn't know: ä, ö, ü, ß

Wenn sie aus den F'usten bricht
Legt sich hei' auf das Gesicht

instead of

Wenn sie aus den Fäusten bricht
Legt sich heiß auf das Gesicht

Greetings from Germany and sorry for my bad english! :D

Doesn't Work anymore!! :(

I LOVED this program but suddenly it stopped working a week or two ago. When I try and start it it gives me an error message saying:
"See the logfile C:Programfiles(x86)/Fabio'siTunesLyricsDownloader3/Testie.exe.log for details"
Is this because of my Norton 360?

You should check the

You should check the permissions... many people have solved that problem this way

Help

I have downloaded successfully, but when I click on the icon, I get an error message, something about not having permission.
Can you help me?
Thanks,
Matt

New Version

Could you please point me to the newstest version? I can only find the old 3.0 version

No longer working?

This was my favorite lyrics downloader until it stopped working. By snooping the traffic, I can see It still contacts wikia, but I guess wikia has changed which means it can't interpret the results? Do you have any plans to fix the downloader? (hoping yes)

Posted by Anonimo on Sun, 11/12/2011 - 22:40
Fixed!

I've already fixed it, and there's already a new working version for Mac Os X, but at the moment I cannot prepare the executable file for windows because i can't test it for now; however, I hope I'll be able to in 1-3 days and so I'll release a new working version for Windows, too!

Posted by Fabio on Mon, 19/12/2011 - 14:09
Great, but a word of warning

Great app, but a word of warning: it won't find the lyrics to an album if you have changed even slightly the album title or the artist's name. I often add something like "feat. X or Y" to the artist's name or add the date the album was recorded to its title. Had to remove all that for Fabio's app to find the lyrics, and read it after that.

My 2 pence.

accents are missing

hi thank you for such a great tool

but the accents in portuguese songs are appearing strangely
can you help?

for example, caetano veloso "sozinho"

's vezes, no sil'ncio da noite
Eu fico imaginando n's dois
Eu fico ali sonhando acordado, juntando
o antes, o agora e o depois
por que voc' me deixa t'o solto?
por que voc' n'o cola em mim?
T' me sentindo muito sozinho

should be:

Às vezes no silêncio da noite

Eu fico imaginando nós dois

Eu fico aqui sonhando acordado, 
juntando
o antes, o agora e o depois

Por que você me deixa tão solto?

Por que você não cola em mim?

Tô me sentindo muito sozinho

Posted by Anonimo on Tue, 07/06/2011 - 23:45
Thank You for providing such a good tool!!!

Finally I found this software which can perfectly help me to search and add lyrics for my songs in iTunes.
Great job!

fail when using virtualization software

Hey Fabio,

first of all congratulations on the awesome software, I've been using it for windows for a while now but I just moved to Linux, I installed a virtualization engine (virtualbox) to install iTunes and your Lyrics downloader to manage my iphone's music.

however when I try to run the program a message appears that says "this program's configuration is incorrect. try reinstalling" I have tried installing different versions of lyrics downloader, different versions of itunes and running them in compatibility mode but with no success.... do you know if there is something that needs to be changed in my computer's configuration to make your software work in a virtual machine?

thank you very much and keep up the great software

Pablo

Posted by Anonimo on Mon, 13/12/2010 - 00:16
Hello Pablo, I'm sorry but I

Hello Pablo, I'm sorry but I haven't ever tried using it with a virtualization software. Although it isn't intended to run with a virtualization software, maybe it is possible to find a way to make it work, but I haven't got the possibility to try to run it with a virtual machine so I can't help you. Please let us know if you find a solution ;)

THANK YOU SO MUCH

And to everyone who cant change the language to English, just use google translator for now. ;)

Posted by Anonimo on Mon, 25/10/2010 - 04:10
It isn't necessary to use

It isn't necessary to use google translator: you can select the language you want with the button on the left!

win 7 english?

Hi Fabio
I am a long time user and donor to your site. I just got a new computer and when I install the 3.0 version and click the language and select English nothing changes. Can you please help?
Thanks!

Problem w/saving language settings

People have you tried running the exe explicitly as Administrator? i had same trouble on Vista till i realized program didnt have sufficient rights to save the changed language setting in its own folder...

Posted by Anonimo on Wed, 08/12/2010 - 22:11
I had a similar problem

I had a similar problem w/vista. it tuned out that the program didnt have sufficient permissions to write to the iTunes Lyric's folder to save the new language settings.
Try running the program expressly as administratr by right clicking on the exe file
and choosing run as administrator. Then save your new settings and see if that helps...

Posted by Anonimo on Wed, 08/12/2010 - 22:06
Hi, Jay, I remember you! In

Hi, Jay, I remember you!
In order to change the language, you have to restart the program; have you done this?

Posted by Fabio on Sat, 11/09/2010 - 10:49
Restarted program and the language is still Italian

I have restarted program many times and still in Italian.. Any suggestions?

Posted by Anonimo on Fri, 01/10/2010 - 21:09
Does it save the settings? If

Does it save the settings? If it does not, I have understood what's the problem.

Lyrics in Spanish and character encoding

Hi Fabio

Your app works fine. The interface could get some polish but it gets the work done.

I'm Spanish and I've downloaded a few Spanish songs lyrics. We have tildes and other special characters in Spanish. Your app downloads the lyrics but doesn't show these characters. Instead it shows the HTML entity escape sequence. Here's an example:

me iré
no miraré hacia atrás

should read instead:

me iré
no miraré hacia atrás

Can you fix this?

(I'm using the Mac version on OSX 10.6 and iTunes 9.2.1)

I've tried to fix this lots

I've tried to fix this lots of times; however, i couldn't get rid of this problem. I'll fix this when I'll write the next version of this program, which I hope that will be free of all these problems that have been found until now.
