Re-authorise Lyricsmaster extension!

  • Problem
  • Updated 5 years ago
  • Solved
I don't understand why you deactivate the authorisation to use Lyricsmaster, unnofficial version was working very well and now we can't use it!

You should make this version official instead of blocking everyone more than 2 mounth after the bug report

Another action which makes me thinking of leaving songbird...

With the tipp (on Songbird Help) my problems in german version were solved, lyrics are right. "Pending a change module Lyric Master Tsantana we provided a solution to the problem from new changes in the home base LyricMaster. You must download the file of corrections on the following link for the patch for the extension of LyricMaster de-zip.

Replace the 2 files in the extract file extension in your profile. (Lm_fetcher.js - pane.js)

Let C: \ Users \ username \ AppData \ Roaming \ Songbird2 \ Profiles \ votreprofil.Songbird \ Extensions \ (248e3e8b-4e7e-5a5c-9bef-631720255e36e0) \ chrome \ content.

Restart Songbird Lyric Master and your extension working again."

@ Henning, That's exactly what I've done some weeks ago to correct the problem but since yesterday songbird has disabled the extension because it may be dangerous!

I'm only asking the songbird team to re-allow songbird to use the extension!

Agreeing with Vince on this one. Maybe the Songbird employees haven't read the comments on the LyricMaster page and know that there is a perfectly working unofficial version. If that is the case they should go there right away and download and test that version and make it official.

This problem of developers abandoning their add-ons is happening way too often, finally someone came up with a fix and now people cant use it :\

Really, POTI, disabling add-ons without even checking the comments on their webpages is completely unacceptable. Not only you are unable to fix Shoutcast once and for all, and now you're blocking LyricsMaster. Get a clue, people.

What on Earth are POTI doing. We have a work around that allows LyricMaster to function and they force it to be disabled! No lyrics means no Songbird for me.

I downloaded the unofficial 1.7.9+ LyricMaster extension. When I was trying to install it, it was blocked as a dangerous extension. Please make a solution.

Please reauthorize this add-on, the unofficial fix available here: http://www.mediafire.com/download.php...

Works perfectly, getting right lyrics for all my songs.

Truthfully the community modified version of this extension worked more efficiently than the original version, which very well may not longer be supported. The modified version included the ability to pull lyrics from multiple databases, increasing the chances of finding them for less than popular songs. Definitely a bad move on the songbird's team part, hopefully they can correct this soon.

Wow songbird.. I've stuck with you few a number of major bugs, but why would you block a fix that made the addon work better than the original? Don't make me go back to the dreaded itunes..

Please solve this issue as soon as possible.
The only advantage of Songbird are extensions like this!

And please think about a now playing list. The lack of it make us think of going back to other media players when we want to listen to our library...

Please sort this out. Either review and update the 'official' project with the new code or fork this add-on (first option preferable). I'm confused why the add-on was blocked when a working solution existed.

The unofficial version works perfectly... so that's the ticket... just cut off your nose despite your face. Please, sort out your differences and let those of us who love and use this extension get back to the business of enjoying it. The unnoficial version works perfectly.

This plugin was the reason I quit using iTunes, wish it wouldn't quit working every week or two.

We didn't block the fix for the Add-On. What we did was disable our version of the Add-On because it didn't work at all. The lyrics providing started returning garbage instead of actual lyrics.

We know there is a fixed version of the add-on that's out there that someone made but this version needs to have it's own extension uuid (in the install.rdf). The only reason why it doesn't work right now is because it uses the same extension uuid as ours (which is blocked right now until we fix it).

We are absolutely not attempting to block the community from releasing their own version.

Aus - That's great, but to the vast majority of people here they have no idea what you are talking about. What people want is a working version of Lyricmaster again.

Is there a reason that someone on the Songbird team can't take the community version and roll it out as a new extension with a new uuid? Would this not solve the problem?

What you did was blocking the only people who believe in you enough to use your software and fix your add-on.
Now you're saying that community should create her own add-on?
I really don't understand what you wanted to do, but if you want us to leave you're doing it well!

Hey hey now, slow down. I'm not saying any of that. I'm saying the person that released a fixed version of our add-on should just change the extension uuid. That's all. We'll be fixing ours as soon as we can.

Either by taking the fix that was done by the community (if they were to file a bug and attach the changes they made to it that would make it go faster) or by writing our own fix (this would take longer).

I don't understand: what do you mean by new uuid?

Extensions have a unique identifier (UUID). I don't want to sound silly here but this identifier needs to be unique. This is what is used to identify an extension and it's what the extension blocking mechanism uses.

If the community fixed version were to use a new UUID, it would not be blocked. Because when we blocked LyricsMaster, we specifically blocked our version.

We didn't expect someone to have released another version with the same UUID. Since, well, they are supposed to be unique.

Hope this makes sense.

For those who don't know how to fix this uuid problem, I've posted a version here:

Hope it'll help, but I still think it is not the solution...
