GOOGLYRICS DEVELOPMENT HAS HALTED. TRY THE GOOGLYRICS2 BETA at: http://kde-apps.org/content/show.php/Googlyrics2?content=86837
Sick and tired of traditional, crappy lyrics search tools? Sick of having to go to google yourself to hunt down lyrics? GoogLyrics is for you! I've been annoyed by the low yield on some of my more obscure music with many of the Amarok lyric search scripts available. A long time ago, I'd seen a rather impressive windows program called EvilLyrics, they had an interesting idea, search for the lyrics then rip them off known websites, using this it managed to have a very high success rate at lyric extraction. I decided to implement this myself in an amarok script. After a quick day of scripting, here's the result: a true lyrics metasearch script. Now a month later, this script is constantly getting more advanced. It now supports many different popular lyrics sites and has an extremely high success rate on even my more obscure music.
If you're using Ubuntu or debian, this is as simple as download+install the package below. For any other distro, read on.
This script requires the WWW::Mechanize perl module to run,
to install it on any distro:
cpan> install WWW::Mechanize
Text::Iconv is also required for this, however, this is already included in most perl packages. if not, follow the cpan instructions replacing WWW::Mechanize with Text::Iconv
Logo credits go to puffaliaz, who I'm yet to have a website from... when he makes one I'll post it.
Files have been moved to rapidshare.com direct links. Hope it works :)
