Internet Settings

OnSong can import songs from an Internet website. Only one can be configured at a time. Use these settings to configure a different website.


Synchronization is slightly different from import methods but it in the similar category. Configure where OnSong can synchronize it's library to here.

Text File Handling

Text files may need to be configured for different file encodings or conversions.

Warn For Existing Songs

When this is enabled, OnSong will display songs that have been imported that already exist in your OnSong library. If you attempt to import those songs again, you will be prompted as to what to do. OnSong matches based on the filename of the song. Default is on.

Warn For Overwriting

When you import a file that already existing, or a file that can contain multiple songs, OnSong will prompt you to update, duplicate, or skip the import. Updating the file will overwrite the existing file. OnSong presents another warning if you choose Update. Turn this setting off if you want to omit that secondary warning.

View Newly Imported Songs

When this is enabled, imported songs are displayed in a temporary set. This allows you to review newly imported songs and edit them if needed. Default is on.
