Amarok cannot find the lyrics of the songs that I play
- The lyrics are not available in the sites checked on the Internet. You may wish to add more sites via the script menu.
- The track numbering system within an album in your collection is not correct.
- The title of your song contains special characters with a cedille, accent, etc. that do not show in your track title; therefore the lyrics script applet cannot find a match for your title. Check your tags and track numbering system with a tagger such as Picard.
