SCaLPI v2.5 for Rainmeter by Flipslide SCaLPI v2.5 for Rainmeter by Flipslide
SCaLPI - Simple Cover and Lyrics Player Interface

A litte Rainmeter-Skin i've made inspired by RMediaCover but changed a whole lot!

Lyrics scroll automatically! Credits to smurfier ( [link] ) for this!

Works with almost every player using NowPlaying.dll

Instructions:
Rightklick and klick "Edit skin"
Change "Player" to Winamp, iTunes, WMP, etc,... ( Full list of Players here: [link] )

Change "Playerpath" to the Path of your Player


Also be sure to write me any suggestions ;)

YOU NEED(!) Rainmeter for this to work!
Rainmeter: [link]


Whats new in v2?

- Everything works seperatly
- Lots of new settings for size and color
- Lyrics can also be aligned right and centered!

Whats new in v2.5?

- Manual scrollable (Mousewheel)
- Auto, Manual, and Comboscroll-Option


Bugs:
- Still sometimes problems with autoscrolling of lyrics...
Works in most cases and is fixable by adjusting size

Videotour: (sorry for my english...)

As said 1000 times before.
Lyric retrieval is a undocumented function of rainmeter.

The plugin itself has nothing to do with it.

It's realy awesome skin. Is there a way it shows lyrics while I listen online radio stations on winamp?

If winamp gets correct metadata from the stream it should do that.

Hey man! awesome skin! I was searching for smthing like that for many months.. 
By the way, I made a modification to simplify the process of changin the player, I just created a "variables.inf" file in the root of the skin and I replaced the code  "player" and "pathPlayer" for  

[Variables]
include=#ROOTCONFIGPATH#Variables.inf

Wich has the code...

[Variables]
Player=WMP
PlayerPath="C:\Program Files\Windows Media Player\wmplayer.exe"

I did it in each skin so to change the player you only have to change the player name and path in the variables.inf file instead of one by one
Hope it results useful for you
Nice day!

Hey, First of all good job ;).
I have an issue.... I'm making a personal skin by collage of something ones... I have already a Music Player addon according to my prefences... Now I want to insert your Lyrics Player addon... I have modified the .ini good to points it on Windows Media Player, and .... It's working well "only" first time I start Windows Media Player... If I close it and open it again both Music Player and Lyric Player go down, showing "Not Playing"...

How can I solve this issue?

(Sorry for my bad english, I'll hope it's comprensible)

Show me your changes, otherwise i can't really help you i think.
Also i've never tried to let this, or any other rainmeter-skin with WMP, but it "should" work without any problems, at least in theory

This Is my folder with Music Player and Lyric Player

and this is my Resource folder in wich there are many styles/measures/script
www.dropbox.com/sh/nh49m9ifhmk…


If you want I can export My skin in a package and let you control it yourself. 

Thank you so much for the attention.

Problem solved: it's a bug in Windows Media Player. Changed the player with AIMP, now it's working really fine.

You have to edit the Lyrics on the Sites Rainmeter gets them from, it's having problems since Lyric-retrieval is still(!) an undocumented function of Rainmeter that doesn't get much support.
The Sources are somewhere in the comments if you need to dig them up.
I believe the first one on priority-list is Lyrikwiki, but don't quote me on that

Is there any way to have absolute control over the lyrics? You make some mentions to a .ccp file earlier in the thread, but most people (including myself) have no idea what to do with it. Any way we can just have it grab lyrics from system files, or if not, how can we change where it grabs lyrics from? A tutorial would be nice, and if you do make one, you should post it on your main page so everyone else with the same problem can see it.

Well, as said a thousand times before, lyric retrieval is a (still, why?!) undocumented function of Rainmeter. So to change how this function works you would have to dive into c++ Programming.

However, you could instead replace the lyric retrieval to use Localfiles with some LUA-Scripting ( rainmeter.net/forum/viewtopic.… )
Unfortunately though, i don't have much time or need to do either of those things.

Is there a way for the lyrics to disregard a part of the title? I have a lot of titles that say "(feat. X)" or "(X remix)" and I think that the plugin searches for that part too.

Otherwise, GREAT SKIN.

This is soo good. I wish it could show the lyrics that stored in local media file (the lyrics are embed into the media files) and give those lyrics higher priority over lyrics from internet. You know, when playing non-english song, the lyrics grabber only grabs some lines of the song... Anyway, good skin <3.

Hey awesome skin, but I have one problem.
The skin only shows the first verse of Li'l Red Riding Hood - Amanda Seyfried

So when it starts it just shows:
Hey there Little Red Riding Hoot,
You sure are looking good.
You're everything a big bad wolf could want.

and then nothing more, I tried searching for the songs from the webside you say this skin finds the lyrics, and they have the full lyrics on all of them I think.

Got it to work, although it takes an extremely long time to find the lyrics. The song is nearly half-over by the time it comes up... Really great job though! Very easy to incorporate into other themes due to your great organization.

One question though: How do I make it so that apostrophes and other characters don't show up as strings of gibberish?

well for lyrics searching, as said so often, i cant do anything about that because of the rainmeter function...
don't have any problems with apostrophes, sometimes the lyrics grabber will do something strange, but thats again not a skin thing, other than that i would need more info about that one

which line that i need to edit if i want the lyrics to scroll automatically, but with faster rate
i think manual scroll mode is great, but it is kinda sloppy, so i prefer to use auto scroll mode instead

and one more thing...which website / lyrics database that this skin use to pull the lyrics from the Internet? most of my japanese language songs does not have proper lyrics..no problem with English based song though

just mess around with this formula
[cCounter]
Measure=Calc
Formula=(((#size#/#sizemultiplic#))+((#size#-2)/#sizemultiplic#))*[GetLengh]/100*([mProgress]+#Scroll#)
DynamicVariables=1

in this case this is grabbed from the autoscroll-widget



The lyrics are grabbed from

lyrics.wikia.com/

webservices.lyrdb.com/

letras.terra.com.br


according to rainmeter source here: github.com/rainmeter/rainmeter…

No chance of using embedded lyrics sadly... lyrics retrieval is still a undocumented feature of rainmeter and is only able to get lyrics from the internet

Hey there,

Nice skin, just wanna ask a few questions...
1) Is there a way to put a title for stuff like artist - "whatever its playing now"
2) Can it be set to grab lyrics online?

Thanks for the skin =)
