Projects / Musicextras


Musicextras is a program for automatically retrieving extra information for songs. Currently it retrieves lyrics, album covers, artist images, and more. It was designed to make it easy to add other functionality. Information is obtained using plugins that parse Web page data. An example for having XMMS automatically load information for the currently playing MP3 is included.
