Version and Build of AIMP?

Check that what you have checked in Preferences/Player/Additional Information/Lyrics is still set up the way you want it, especially the paths if you use externally stored lyrics.

Thanks for your reply.

I'm using v5.02, build 2369.

Your image shows you are not using external text files for lyrics--is that correct?  If that is the case, is lyric retrieval failing for embedded lyrics in files, those downloaded from radio station metadata, or both?

Check that in Prefs/Plugins, the "WebLyrics" plugin is checked.

Were you using the Information Box for showing lyrics?  Is that panel still selected in the main menu?

After what point did you suddenly stop seeing lyrics?  Was it after adding a new update or plugin?

I don't use plug-ins and I have made no arrangements for text files.  Lyrics would just appear without any help from me, so I assumed they were being fetched from the Internet automatically.

The "WebLyrics" plugin is indeed checked - I unchecked and rechecked it again to see if that would work but I had no joy with that.

Sorry but I'm out of ideas.  They appear fine for me in the Information Box (if a suitable lyrics site was found) for radio, and also for embedded, using build 2369.  You didn't clarify if any of the files had embedded (internal) lyrics--check in the Tag Editor.

If it's just stuff being pulled from the Internet, try replacing your aimp_webLyrics.ini file inside the aimp_webLyrics folder in Plugins with the one attached here (unzip first).

Your file worked!  Mine must've been corrupted - must do a virus scan just in case.

Thank you so much for your kind, knowledgeable assistance.
