Ncmpcpp, MPD, and lyrics

My ncmpcpp cannot retrieve lyrics from the internet anymore. It used to work fine a few weeks ago, but something happened. It will show that it is searching all of the databases, but it says that none are found. The internet search will then show a web link to a page with the searched lyrics from one of the previously tried sites. I haven't been able to retrieve lyrics for any songs for the past week or so and it is infuriating. I used to love the feature but it isn't working for me anymore. I doublechecked that i have all of the necessary dependencies installed and I even reinstalled them just to make sure. I'm assuming this is a personal problem with my machine, because I have searched everywhere and cannot find anyone else having even a similar problem. Any kind of help or direction would be beneficial. Thanks in advanced

Here is a picture to show what I mean if my text was unclear. For the record, I did go to that webpage. It does exist, and it does have the lyrics. http://imgur.com/OXV5UKc

Re: Ncmpcpp, MPD, and lyrics

fwiw, i never use the feature on ncmpcpp and didn't get it to work when i tried yesterday (although i did not get the same messages as on your scrot), but on gmpc it works. at least for "major" artists (tried with talking heads).
if i can help you by comparing setups or the like, i will.

I'm getting the same thing,with the default config file on a fresh install.A great player nonetheless.

Re: Ncmpcpp, MPD, and lyrics

The latest ncmpcpp release is almost two years old now and a lot of the lyrics grabbers are probably out of date. Fetching lyrics works fine for me with ncmpcpp from git.

Thanks. I just updated to ncmpcpp-git instead of the one in the repos and lyric fetching works again.

Re: Ncmpcpp, MPD, and lyrics

Git version works for me too with lyrics.

Though I've noticed the help / keybinding page, normally "1" is gone.

Is it supposed to be like this?
