    Link option for uploading YouTube videos

    I just started moderating a new artist but since they're not very popular some of their songs on YouTube don't have many views (I'm guessing that's part of my problem). My problem is when I'm trying to find a song I know is on YouTube to add to the song's lyric page, when I search for it often the song doesn't come up, no matter how many times I re-word my search. It's a problem for me because my artist has many songs with more than one version, so it makes it kind of confusing when I have two different lyric pages for a song with the same title and YouTube video, but I'm claiming they're different. I thought a way to fix this problem would be instead of just having the YouTube search field to upload songs to their pages we could also have a link field to enter them.

    How are you searching them?

    I'm going to the edit song section and then clicking the video tab. Then I hit add video and that's how I searched for it.

    Do you remove the dash? Sometimes that will help.

    Yeah. I've re-worded my searches every single way I can think of.

    I believe you have your answer, Emily, as like you said, the video you wanted to add is not as popular as other songs. I definitely could see this being changed though. Ray could look into this.

    Perhaps the video you're looking for is not allowed to be embedded (or "shared") on other websites like LetsSingIt. Then in won't popup in the LetsSingIt search results.

    I don't think that's the case since if you go to the shared section on its YouTube page it lets you share it to the different social media sites, but I'm not sure if that proves anything.

    Do you want me to take a look at one of the songs?

    If you have the time to. The YouTube video is called Eisley - I Wasn't Prepared (EP version).

    When I searched again it didn't show up. It would of said in the title of the video if it were.

    I have about 20,000 songs on my computer. Titles and albums share names both by the same artists and other Artists. I used iTunes for comparing, sorting and lyrics. With the song titles and album names I give the name an extension (ie: Song Title - v01) this way I can ready see if there is one than one. It is also ease to distinguish between songs by the same artists and edited lyrics for Duets, shorten, live versions, or presented on two or more albums. I keep them separated playlist and thus easier to cut and paste lyrics to matched songs. Keeping track of the album's other info is important too. I research each song's composer, dates etc. Often if the song is hard to find, than a search by composer, or label will help. Warning if you keep our lyrics iTunes the buffers only allows about 3,000 entries before they start to refuse entries. I moved the lyrics over to my Word Processor. They are easier to catalogue and edit.
    I am also lucky that the local University has a great library with tons of scores and lyrics. Often too, emails to the artists themselves can give you insights to the info you need.
