Editors' reviewThis plug-in lets you view song lyrics when using Winamp, but it seems like a less-attractive option than many of its competitors. For starters, Winamp Lyrics only supports the jukebox found in its name, neglecting other popular choices. The application's lyrics pane can be accessed from Winamp's View menu, but strangely enough, if you turn it off, you'll have to restart the jukebox to find it again. Changing the plug-in's preferences also is a hassle, requiring you to dig through Winamp's menu items. Customization options aren't expansive, but you can change the font, color, and format of the displayed lyrics. As soon as you click a tune, Winamp Lyrics will retrieve the words from the Web and either save them as a TXT file or embed them in the MP3. In our tests, performance was decent, though the application failed to retrieve the words to many of the obscure tracks in our collection. Dedicated WinAmp users might find some benefit here, but hard-core music fiends have better options at their disposal.
Simple but effective, this Winamp plug-in finds the lyrics for the MP3 file you're playing (from its tag or from a TXT file) and scrolls it according to the elapsed time, using the current skin. The program also contains a "HitList", which counts how many times you've opened a certain MP3. You can bind any hot key to any action, working from the whole system (not only from Winamp).
This update features bug fixes and adds a built-in text editor and better time-stamp support. See the read-me file for other options.
