Split fetching lyrics into a library

Registered by Sergey "Shnatsel" Davidoff on 2011-12-06

There are over a dozen music players with lirycs fetching out there, but developers behind each player always reinvent the wheel and write their own wrappers to the same websites. This is madness.

We should create a library for liryc fetching either by convincing developers of existing music players, or (if the above fails) develop it ourselves.

Whiteboard

Solutions that can serve as a base:

* http://www.clementine-player.org/ - C++, 16 sources enabled by default, 22 total

* http://kde-apps.org/content/show.php/Ultimate+Lyrics?content=108967 - JavaScript, 25 sources + google
fallback; it should not be hard to rewrite it in Vala if needed

* http://code.google.com/p/osd-lyrics/ - C, just 2 sources

* http://gtk-apps.org/content/show.php/Banshee+Lyrics+Plugin?content=64837 - C#, just 4 sources

* http://code.google.com/p/rhythmcat/ lyric crawler plugin - C, just 3 sources

Seeing how no such library exists yet, I don't see how this is related to BeatBox other than me possibly contributing to such a library, which at this point I do not plan to do. --Scott
