Lyrics Plugin


Good things are simple and come in small packages. If you wanted a plugin for your music player that finds and displays lyrics for your songs, Lyrics Plugin is a good answer. It's free, small (around 60 KB) and available for Winamp and Windows Media Player. You don't have to configure anything, the plugin works well out of the box.

The drawback of this plugin is that the lyrics database is not very big, so you may still find famous songs that don't have lyrics. But it's easy to add them.

    You'll have to find a copy on MacUpdate or VersionTracker.

  5. Wow this is fast! As soon as the song starts in Winamp the lyrics show up. Really amazing.

    Since I have moved to subscription radio (yahoo music engine) I wish this didn't just work for Windows Media Player and therefore the Urge subscription service.

    If anybody knows of a similar service for Yahoo Music Engine let me know.

  10. I love this plugin and never had any trouble until i moved and went from Cable to Dial up . Now it is very hard to get it to load .

    But hey it's free and it is still in beta v0.3 let's hope V 0.4 will save the lyrics so you don't need to connect to use the program / Plugin
