ive just got onto this from cu lyrics, i like this better, seems to have more options. a couple of requests.
1. is it possible to get the lyrics to scroll in the middle of the screen with a transparent background rather than in a window on the side. i have a $2000 plasma and i dont really wanna have lrc lyrics burnt into my screen.No

and 2. i have about 4000 song lyrics on my computer from a program i use with wmp called minilyrics, only problem is that it saves the files all in 1 folder as:
artist - song.lrc
lrc lyrics wont recognize them. is it possible to set file save name type ie. artist - song.lrc
or
make the lookup in the library more general so it searches for root dir -> artist folder -> song.lrc AND root dir -> artist - song.lrc. i dont really fancey renaming 4000 files.

Great plugin here, thanks.

Could you add support for lyrics stored in the id3 tags? I use my pc to organize my library and it stores all lyrics inside the <lyrics> tag of the mp3 itself. The contents of that tag are basically the plaintext of an LRC file. See the pic for an example:

its there mate. from main menu go programs > program plugins > SVN Repo Installer > xbms-addons-chinese > scripts > LRC Lyrics (vX.XX)

edit:
make sure u have the latest version of the repo installer and it will show up. go into the repo installer and choose up the top 'check for updates'. install that, restart xbmc and the chinese addons should be there. hope this helps.

+1 vote for this. this will be a kick ass feature if u can get it up and running. i have heaps of music which dont have .lrc files and only embedded lyrics. love to get them displayed on lrc lyrics 2.
cant wait!Nod

have u had any luck with this?
i dont know much about coding but i had a thought that might make this easier.
is it possible to "borrow" some coding from a subtitle script like OSD subtitles in order to make it easier to get the lyrics to "float" rather than being docked?
as i said, just a thought.
happy to do any testing in order to get it going.
