        After you download as an mp3. You can add it in "edit lesson" screen which is inside three dots next to "full text"

        Also, you can find all your imports here

    I've forwarded it to one of the developers. Not sure why this isn't working, I tried it myself and it didn't work. Tried a Korean song, didn't work. Maybe it's because they are songs? Hopefully I can find a solution for you. In the meantime, you can do it manually by copying the lyrics and adding the MP3 into LingQ's import function.

              Eric, I wanted to ask here instead of creating a new post.

              has Lingq any further project supporting srt files under "import ebook function" alongside pdf,mobi... ?

    Hi James,

    I ve just remembered what Brazilians use for lyrics :)

    You can import lyrics here https://www.letras.mus.br/ when it plays on background, u can lingq:)

    However, It shows as a long paragraph, but i am sure u can deal with it

    I'm having an issue with the importer as well. It was working fine a couple of days ago. Now whenever I try to import a French video I get an error message about a "token" parameter or something. I tried checking to see if there's a newer version for Chrome and I even tried uninstalling and reinstalling the extension, just in case.

    It was working fine again up until about 30 minutes ago (apr. 7:30 p.m. EST). Now, I'm getting an error with any video I try saying, "Error, Detail: Subtitles can't be used."

    I'm getting this for videos for which there are subtitles and from a channels where I had no trouble previously.

    I was about to reply again with further feedback saying, "Hey, good news! I tried it again last night and it was working fine."

    Today however, I'm getting that error message again ("Detail: Subtitles can't be used." ).
