I can't get the plugin to work on XP... it just loses contact with the
server when I select the plugin on the squeezebox.

Anyway... this thing doesn't display the lyrics in time with the
song--right? I didn't see any timing info in the raw data supplied from the
website...

Thanks,
Phillip

When the plugin was announced, the server used to download the lyrics was
down. May be it still is...

Do you have XML::DOM installed?

Now that would be a good trick!

Seems OK at the moment.

A plugin to do just this was in the works, but I think the author ran out of
free time. The plugin would take several lyric formats and could display them
with timing. It was farily raw, and the timing needed work, not just from the
plugin, but also server support to make it easier.

This sounds like a Karaoke machine.
