Default media players fetching lyrics

For many a year I've been puzzled by indecipherable pop lyrics. Arguably many are trite, but some must be good.

I believe some windows media players can auto fetch lyrics off the net and display them ~ has anyone used this?

Wondering how comrerhensive a service it is, if it works well in practise (is it synchronised?)

Cheers

I use an excellent media player called MP3Toys (not very inspiring name, I know) but it has a great interface - albums are displayed by cover art - both cover art & lyrics are automatically downloaded from the internet.

If you mean by synchronised , does it do a karaoke style diplay of lyrics, then no it doesn't

Constantly undergoing upgrades - just added support for Flac & lots of other codes & ability to play songs in chosen external player (Foobar for instance)

Why would you not play songs in MP3Toys itself??

You can play songs in MP3Toys itself I just was showing you the flexibility of the product -

some people think Foobar has the best sound of all the MP3 players & you can do digital room correction in it through the use of convolution plugins. In this case MP3Toys acts as a media library manager (with builtin tag editing, BTW) & a pretty good one at that.

Default downloading & displaying lyrics

John

Does downloading work ~ as you rip the CD?

What % can it find; and does it display them as the tracks begins to play?

Cheers

AS you rip & it stores lyrics & album art with music file. It displays as song starts over the album cover art which is washed out to a watermark image

Finds about 90% - obviously new albums are more difficult but in time the lyrics will be posted to various sites which it queries.

You can also copy lyrics from web page to song.
