does "load" mean "start-up"? EvilLyrics never started up with Winamp, you have to start it by yourself.

The following is what is on the site under FAQ...
So what youre saying is that after I start my media player I then have to run Evil lyrics and that starts the automatic mode????


You can search for lyrics either in automatic or manual mode.
Automatic mode is on when you are running one of the supported media players. All you have to do is to start your media player and play a song. If it is properly tagged, EvilLyrics fetches song information from player window title and searches for corresponding lyrics.

Here's what I do (and think it's the normal way of using EvilLyrics):

I start the player, play some song, start evillyrics, evillyrics founds the lyrics on the internet, I am happy :)

when I don't want more lyrics I close evillyrics, and keep the player playing, and I am still happy :)

"automatic" doesn't refer to program startup but to song information retrieval. automatic - song is loaded when it changes in your player, manual - song is loaded when you type it's name into song information box.
EL does't start automatically with winamp.

Oh, I see... so "Start with Winamp" (on the Advanced tab, v0.1.7 build 127) doesn't really mean "Start with Winamp." If this is the case (and if I understand this thread properly), this option should be renamed "Change upon Winamp" - with the explanation that this refers to detecting the song that Winamp's playing.

And, no, it's not that hard to manually start EvilLyric. Just as it's not all that hard to manually start every program I want to run at bootup - instead of putting it in my system's "Startup" folder... but why should I?

No, you are right. It does mean "Start with Winamp", but you have to install a plugin. You can install it by running EL set-up again and checking the Start with Winamp plugin. You can install over the current installation, and your settings/lyrics won't be lost.

The "automatic" in FAQ means that EL will automatically retrieve song information from any player that is already loaded. And the "start with winamp"checkbox in advanced tab is used to control the program behavior if you already have this plugin installed.

I noticed this option during installation. I did select it and presumed all necessary plugins HAD been installed. This is why I was rather upset when it didn't (and still doesn't) start EvilLyric when I click on an MP3 file. Winamp automatically starts, but I still need to click on the EvilLyric icon.

BTW, this was a "virgin install." I had no previous version of EvilLyric on the system to interfere with proper installation.

well .. possibly installer wasn't able to locate your winamp plugins directory. get it here and put the dll in your winamp plugins directorty, it should work.

I checked. and you're right - it didn't find C:\Winamp\Plugins. I just downloaded the file and I'll let you know how it goes.
