Lyrics search speed?

Asked by Jorge Rubio on 2010-06-01

Is it just me or the lyrics search is kinda slow? It takes over 30 seconds with any song... no matter how famous or unknown the song is. I have a 8Mbps broadband connection and searching for the lyrics on Banshee is almost instantaneous. Any suggestions? Thanks!

what lyrics search engine is selected in your configuration? and is "Try other engines ..." is active?

lyricswikia is probably the best one, but it also the last one, so if it is not selected as the default, all other engines will be tried before this one, this leads to long download time

for me with lyricswikia as the default one I receive lyrics in <2 sec in most cases

and activate "Cache lyrics" option

Lyricswikia did make it faster (under 5 secs), thanks!
