Why Category:Pages using deprecated score attributes?

Michael Bednarek (talkcontribs)
Skierpage (talkcontribs)

This was mentioned in Project:Tech News/2019#Tech News: 2019-25

The TimedMediaHandler extension now handles MIDI files, so that putting a wikilink like [[File:somefile.mid]] creates a player. Eventually (phab:T135597) Extension:Score will lose its redundant code, hence the deprecation. I added an explanation of why these attributes are deprecated to this page and how to fix. I haven't added this yet to en:Help:Score.

The behavior won't be exactly the same (e.g. the better MIDI file won't be shown when you click on the score). I wonder why pages override the generated MIDI and audio; their generation has improved.

Michael Bednarek (talkcontribs)

The generation of MIDI files may have improved, but I think the override is mostly done with .ogg files. These could be sound files from actual performances, or from MIDI files that editors have created in their own environment with Soundfonts or similar which most likely generates better sound than this extension. Then there are cases where LilyPond doesn't produce certain ornaments at all.

Sorry, I should have said "after the closing </source> tag." I also responded on that en-wiki talk page.

Problems about title

Summary by 2402:7500:588:318B:0:0:78C4:1BEE

Problem solved (talkcontribs)

I can add a title when using ABC notation, but I can't add it when using LilyPond. How can I add a title when using LilyPond?


ABC notation:

Extension:score installed no sound

AlgorithmGG (talkcontribs)

I am getting no sound the extension creates the files but doesn't convert to audio. I am not getting any errors or sound.

AlgorithmGG (talkcontribs)

slight correction its ready to play, it would seem fluid synth isn't doing its job and when i comment it out it breaks with no fall back. since i configured lame the files are mp3 now rather than ogg but that shouldn't be a problem.

Score doesn't run on MediaWiki on Windows.

Dzeaman (talkcontribs)

The error is:

'c:\LilyPond\usr\bin\lilypond.exe" "--version' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program, or batch file.

download lilypond executable .exe but when adding the path of that file in localsentigs.php when loading the site everything was fine but when I inserted it <score lang = "ABC">

X: 1

M: C

L: 1/4

K: C

C, D, E, F, | G, A, B, C | D E F G | A B c d |

e f g a | b c 'd' e '| f' g 'a' b '|]

</ score>

and save the changes shows me this error

LilyPond failed to run: /$IP/images/lilypond/lilypond-2.19.82-1.mingw.exe is not an executable file. Make sure $ wgScoreLilyPond is set correctly.

MarkAHershberger (talkcontribs)

You probably have

$wgScoreLilyPond = '$IP/images/lilypond/lilypond-2.19.82-1.mingw.exe';

when you should have

$wgScoreLilyPond = "$IP/images/lilypond/lilypond-2.19.82-1.mingw.exe";

(Note the quotes.)

I would not put the binary in my images directory, either.

Uvas magicas (talkcontribs)

It still does not work, I put it with "and the executable file I put it in a lilypond folder inside the extension score but it still does not work.

MarkAHershberger (talkcontribs)

What is the error message now?

Uvas magicas (talkcontribs)

the same as above

MarkAHershberger (talkcontribs)

If it is still failing with LilyPond failed to run: /$IP/images/lilypond/lilypond-2.19.82-1.mingw.exe is not an executable file, then could you copy the line here that you are using for $wgScoreLilyPond?

Uvas magicas (talkcontribs)

$wgScoreLilyPond = $IP/extensions/Score/lilypond/lilypond-2.18.82-1.mingw.exe

MarkAHershberger (talkcontribs)

You need to use quotes:

 $wgScoreLilyPond = "$IP/extensions/Score/lilypond/lilypond-2.18.82-1.mingw.exe"
Uvas magicas (talkcontribs)

I tried it like that but I still got that error:

LilyPond could not be executed: /home/surtico/public_html/laramaazul/wiki/extensions/Score/lilypond/lilypond-2.18.82-1.mingw.exe is not an executable file. Make sure that $ wgScoreLilyPond is aesthetically defined correctly.

MarkAHershberger (talkcontribs)

You are using the Windows version on a Linux host. You will need the Linux version.

Unable to compile LilyPond input file

Hi, when I test the example <score>\relative c' { f d f a d f e d cis a cis e a g f e }</score> , got this error:

I can't solve it. Could you give me some help?

My wiki need to use this great extension. (talkcontribs)

Hi JoesSR,

                I am also facing same issue. Have you relosved this issue? (talkcontribs)

Aqui parese-me tudo correto, porém tenho o erro:


<score vorbis="1" lang="lilypond">\relative c' { c d e f g a b} </score>

Resultado aqui:

Unable to compile LilyPond input file: warning: cannot find file: `.../file.ly' error: failed files: ".../file.ly" exited with status: 1

No média wiki:

\relative c' { c d e f g a b}

Algém sabe qual é o problema?

email: mazera2@gmail.com

Sophivorus (talkcontribs)

Had the same issue. I think it's due to a bug with Lilypond 2.18 (the one still advertised at lilypond.org) but that has been fixed on a more recent version. In the end the commands I used to install the latest Lilypond were:

curl -o lilypond.sh http://download.linuxaudio.org/lilypond/binaries/linux-64/lilypond-2.19.52-1.linux-64.sh
sh lilypond.sh

I can add a title when using ABC notation, but I cat add it when using LilyPond, How can I solve this problem when using LilyPond?

At this moment, <score>...</score> is completely broken – it doesn't render anything, instead it displays the source code.

The Vorbis player output is noisy, producing what sounds like static crackle and stuttering at the beginning of playback. I tried all the examples shown on this Talk page, and every one of them behaves the same way. Curiously, if I pause the playback and then resume it, the sound comes out cleanly, without the static or stutter. Is this a problem with the Vorbis player implementation, or is there a problem in the LilyPond notation conversion to .ogg format? I'm accessing the player with a Linux machine, if that means anything.

Michielderoo (talkcontribs)

I downloaded the ogg file and opened it in Audacity sound editor. The problem is in the ogg file, not in the player. The crackle is only in the right channel.

Skierpage (talkcontribs)

I think you're noticing what I reported this in phab:T50029 "crackling at start of OGG renditions of MIDI files." The bug in the third-party TiMidity software that generates the audio file. It was fixed years ago in a newer version, TiMidity++ 2.14.0, but the Linux distribution that the Wikimedia Foundation uses doesn't ship the fixed version :-( . Instead the extension switched to using Fluidsynth to generate the audio file (phab:T181897).

What's interesting is the crackling noise is still present in the sample on Extension:Score and on some of my old user pages, but not if I copy that score tag to a new page and preview there. It seems Mediawiki aggressively caches the generated audiofile for years!? I wonder if there's a way to invalidate all the generated .ogg audio files in some cache.
