Hi guys,

Great stuff by the way! Very Good App...

My problem is when I hear a song from my disk or from LastFM the lyrics doesnt shows... I've search the Setting but didn't found nothing...
Any idea?

By the way the Portuguese translation doesn't load also. Do you need help on translating? If so I can help...

Thanks in advance!

hi verdura

welcome to boxee

regarding the lyrics when you select the option does the lyric window open ...we use an external source to bring the lyrics in and maybe they have a problem with their servers.please try again later and keep me posted ..
we will be happy to apply your work if you decide to contribute by translating the strings.xml file.
the base (full) file is the english file (language/English/strings.xml) and the boxee strings are the ones with id > 50000.

thanks a lot ..

Hi Marcel,

Thanks for the help!
The lyrics are suposed to load when? When the music starts playing or do I nedd to make something?

I have the Boxee in MAC. Where can I find that folder with the strings?

hey verdura... i just tested, and it seems to be working.

the song i used was placebo's english summer rain

could you give some example names of the songs you're having issue with? also, are the songs/artists/albums recognized by boxee?

as for translations... you'll find the file here:

My mistake! I need to select the music already playing for the lyrics to load.
My "bug"... :D
