It's great, that this addon exists.
I installed it, now it is shown in the summary of addons.
When I play a Song (which IS in the lyrics library of lyricsmode.com) I don't see any lyrics in my VLC.
What am I doing wrong?

Ah, I found it.
I was expecting this addon would automatically search the lyrics for every song, played on VLC

I installed this addon to my Portable VLC install, closed VLC (making sure it's completely closed) and reopened it butu when I play an MP3 and try to get lyrics it gets stuck at "LOADING..."

I'm using a laptop from my local library so could it be simply that the port needed is blocked, and if so could that be changed?

I get the same result and I'm using a desktop with cable connection. Took me a while to figure out how to get the window open haha.

I'm sorry, I'm being a little dense today. Are you saying you found a solution?

I fixed the extension. You can get new version on GitHub: https://github.com/alexxxnf/VLC-Lyrics-Finder

Thanks! I used to run Amarok when I had a Linux box and now that I use Portable VLC I can get my lyrics again without having to open a tab and hunt for each song I play.

Hi there, I've never dealt with VLC addons before so can you please tell me what I do with the lua file? Cheers.

I use firefox with NoScript. When I click on download link I get lua code (as a plain text) instead of downloading. From before I know that in firefox you can choose what happened with some of file formats (tools>options>applications). However There is no lua type, so for this situation solution is "file>save as":
140696-lyricsextension.lua (number may wary) then move that file in vlc directory (folder). If you can download regularly (just clicking) on download button on this extension page then good for you. The exact directory depends of your environment, but it must be not difficult to find. In my case it is portable vlc, and path is "c:\videosoftware\vlc\vlc-2.1.3\lua\extensions". Just put it there. In my case there is one extension already VLSub.luac, which is also can be found in vlc: tools>plugins_and_extensions as VLsub 0.9.10. As you see its luac no lua (I think "c" is for compiled), but you can leave 140696-lyricsextension.lua as is. Now just use "reload extension" button in vlc "tools>plugins_and_extensions" and you can see new extension: "Lirycs Finder". So I suppose that for most people is enough just to download extension in right folder, but for those who must go around, as myself, this longer answer can be useful. So long and thanks... for the fishes, you know.

Thanks levidan, but if you look at the date, that was a very old post and I've had the problem sorted for a long time now. Cheers :-)
