Editors' Review

TuneWiki's Windows Media Player plug-in is part licensed lyrics spooler for your own songs and for streaming YouTube videos, and part social project. TuneWiki's interface reskins Windows Media Player's "Now Playing" window. As the music from your library plays, TuneWiki checks its online wiki database for song lyrics--which members mostly contribute, Wikipedia-style--and plays them in time with the music. If you search for YouTube videos through TuneWiki's plug-in, it will similarly serve lyrics, if available. The lyrics tools include support for language translations, the ability to manually scroll through lyrics rather than stream them, and a process by which you can easily manually reset the timing between a song's audio track and its associated lyrics.

In addition to TuneWiki's primary visual lyrics experience is a secondary social one. TuneWiki displays music maps on which other TuneWiki users are plotted. You'll be able to see who in close proximity is playing which song, or where in the world others are playing the same song as you. Clicking an individual's name can pull up the YouTube video of the song they're rocking so you can watch along, or can show the song's real-time influence on the globe.

While TuneWikie's lyrics database especially enriches the basic Windows Media Player experience, it harbors some flaws. Some tools aren't immediately intuitive, like the resyncing process, and the fact that only TuneWiki-approved editors can edit existing lyrics. A text notice on the editor-only area would wipe away potential confusion and frustration. Also, we'd like the size of the YouTube video to be adjustable. If the YouTube video stops, as it did once during testing, we want to refresh it without closing and reopening the app. When searching for songs, we'd like a more elegant display of the artist and album information returned in the results.

TuneWiki's plug-in is good enough to use now--the lyrics and music maps adding utility and interest--but will benefit from a few more development iterations.

"It's a good bit of fun."

December 12, 2009  |  By strawmanboater

 |  Version: TuneWiki for Windows Media Player 0.1.01.53

Pros

You get to see the lyrics pretty well and can sing along if the mood takes you, and geographic playlists. You can also submit lyrics if they don't appear which could be fun in many ways.

Cons

You can sing along, but nothing really, sometimes the lyrics don't appear but most of my cd's pre-date the operating requirements.

Summary

I like it, give it a go.

Sits at the bottom of Media player.and lets you sing along to the annoyance of those around you - especially when wearing headphones.

"Lyrics incorrect"

I like following what everyone else is listening to in my area

Cons

Most of the lyrics I listen to are either unavailable or incorrect. Can't get map to start in my location (I don't live in Kentucky!)

Am always getting script error messages. The lyrics don't always scroll or scroll out of sync and will not adjust.
