Issue

The Change Of Shan Bay’s Access_token

I applied access_token with my shan bay account, but I found the access_token will change for about every two months, I have to apply new access_token again. So the software needs to be maintained for a long time.

Internet Error

You may see the following information if there is a timeout of connection or other internet error.

Data Error

Shan bay offers us some wrong data, most of these errors are in example sentences.
(1) Translations for English are English sentences.
"annotation": "A baby is a very young child, especially one that cannot yet walk or talk.",

            "audio_addresses": {

            },

            "audio_name": "",

            "first": "A ",

            "id": 2580757,

            "last": " is a very young child, especially one that cannot yet walk or talk.",

            "likes": 0,

            "mid": "baby",

            "nickname": "王佩文大王",

            "translation": "A baby is a very young child, especially one that cannot yet walk or talk. ",

            "unlikes": 0,

//...

            "word": "baby"
(2) Multiple same example sentences
"data": [

{

"annotation": "This is a girls' school.",

"audio_addresses": {

},

"audio_name": "",

//...

"nickname": "lotus8007",

"translation": "这是一所女子学校。nThis is a girl's school.这是某个女孩子所上的学校。nThis is the girls' school.这是那些女孩子所上的学校。nThis is the girl's school.这是那个女孩子所上的学校。",

"unlikes": 0,

//...

"word": "girl"

},
(3) Playing issue on Ubuntu
If you can’t play word pronunciation after click play button, the issue may have the same cause: Your GStreamer installation is missing a plugin
You can fix it after installing the clementine media player which can bring necessary libraries.
(4) Running on windows
It works normally on the win7 platform if it is launched by cmd. But it returns nothing for search word if it is launched by double click on the program icon.
So I didn’t put the software running windows in the download page.
