#12576 closed Patch - Feature (fixed)

Additional support for .lrc files

Reported by: Mike Rice <mikerice1969@…> Owned by: paulh
Priority: minor Milestone: 0.28
Component: Plugin - MythMusic Version: Master Head
Severity: low Keywords: lyrics
Cc: Ticket locked: no


I've been testing the grabber with .lrc files. I've found a few elements that are not handled.

  1. Multiple time codes on a single line:

[02:01.45][02:54.25][04:06.70][04:19.90]I ran so far away

  1. Time codes that are missing the hundredths part:

[00:51]I'll be coming for your love, OK?

  1. Offset codes: [offset:+/- Overall timestamp adjustment in milliseconds, + shifts time up, - shifts down]


  1. Some other tags to ignore:

[id: fu_qkqu] [length: 01:59] [au: BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN]

I've attached a patch that seems to work okay for me.
