[TUT] Manually adding lyrics on Sense 5 Music Player
this tutorial quoted from HTC one x thread ( baha76_s
I quoted the thread from him
original thread from mr1029x here
Somehow HTC (or GraceNote music database?!) didn't allowed to download the lyrics for some countries (geographic limitation!! may be),
so for those how didn't work the lyrics in the sense 5 stock music player, they have 2 solution:
: this method quoted from HTC one x thread (all thanks to mr1029x
) and i tested with success:
First, go on the internet and search for the song's lyrics. Remember, if you want it to works properly, you need to find two types of lyrics: the normal text one, and synchronized one which is found in .lrc file types.
The first normal text ones are easy to find through famous sites such as metrolyrics or azlyrics,etc..
The .lrc files are a bit harder looking up and not always available on the internet. You could learn how to make one yourself right here
Personally, I used app from playstore called "KiePlayer
" which download and generate a *.lrc file(synchronized lyric file) for your musics.(I think TTpod do the same work)
Second, create a notepad and paste the normal lyrics that you found to there, save the file without any extension, name it Songfilename_lyric.
In the same way, copy the content of the synchronized lyrics to notepad, save the file without any extension, name it Songfilename_lrc (LRC not IRC)
For example, If your song file name is ABC.mp3, name the files ABC_lyric and ABC_lrc
Third, plug the phone into your computer, copy two files that you've created to
Computer\HTC One X\Internal storage\Android\data\com.htc.musicenhancer\files\. albumarts\storage_external\Music
Remember, look for a file name Songfilename_not_available in that directory, if it exists, delete it
The _lrc file is required for the lyrics to pop up while you're playing music, if you don't want it, then you don't have to create
Try to google search "filetype:lrc Song Name" if you don't find any synchronized lyrics with normal searching
If you have any questions, leave a comment
I will try to add Screenshots as soon as possible
: download any VPN changer app from playstore (i tested the "TunnelBear
" app with success), then change the VPN to US or UK then go to your music player and activate the automatic lyrics download and that's it, you will see all your lyrics of your musics (if they already found in the "GraceNote music database") displayed in your music player, then you can dis-activate your VPN app (this method need to be activated ONLY ONE TIME
By the way, if you guys want lrc files, I'd suggest a program called minilyrics. It works with iTunes and downloads user-created lrc files that you can edit yourself. It's free too, and it's the way I get lrc files.
