Is anyone aware of an addon to read and display the lyric information
from mp3 ID tags?

Is it something that could be included in a fiture release of the
slimpserver software?

Cheers,
Robin.

There is a work in progress to have lyrics display as a screensaver. It was
posted here a while ago. Look in the developer archives around Dec 28, 2003 for
a subject line: Lyrics screensaver

Yes, that's me. It's been on the shelf since Christmas - other things
to do. But this may be the incentive I need to get it finished.

Trevor, what format are your lyrics in? There are numerous standards,
and I've tried to support most of them, but I don't actually have too
many real mp3+lyric files.

Out of curiosity, do any of the lyrics formats have embedded indications
of how the lyrics coordinate with the audio track? That is, are they ways of
displaying the lyrics in a way that corresponds reasonably well to the pace
at which they are sung?

As the other poster mentioned, though, actually finding files with
this information in the tags is a whole other matter...

Absolutely - there'd be little point integrating them if not!

Formats I support so far are:

- ALC file beside the song file - download from
http://www.iprogramdev.com/alc
- Embedded ALC - see http://www.id3.org/id3v2.3.0.html#sec4.10
- LRC file beside the song file - download from various sources
- Embedded LYRICS3 - see http://www.id3.org/lyrics3200.html

All these have timing to at least the second - LYRICS3 can even specify
down to syllable level.
