What is USLT?
USLT is the mp3 unsynchonized lyrics tag that MediaMonkey can read. Minilyrics can also save lyrics to this tag when you select to save lyrics as "ID3v2 unsynchronized lyrics".
I set the Mini Lyrics to save synchronized and unsynchronized. I was under the impression that ML would save it correctly and that MM would be able to read it. I have noticed that even though ML is showing me lyrics, either text or LRC, they do not show up in the Lyrics tab of the file. I opened up a ML file and under File is says "song;//id3v2/sylt/eng". Sooooo....
What did I miss? As I am a novice to all of this, I only selected what MM and ML allowed me to select. I have spent hours saving and synching lyrics. Was that a waste? Why did some embed and some didn't? Is there an easy way to embed the lyrics that are being used by ML?
If you have Minilyrics saving to both synchronized and unsynchronized but the lyrics don't display, then its an issue where the lyrics were probably saved to the tag by Minilyrics but the track was never refreshed in MM. You can do this either with the Gold version of MM by keeping File Monitor on and monitoring all of your tracks or by rescanning your tracks via File | Add/rescan tracks to the library and rescanning the tracks that are in your library and have been tagged with Minilyrics.
Keep in mind that if you happen to open the lyrics panel in MM while it is empty because the new lyrics haven't been loaded into MM yet (because you haven't turned file monitor on or rescanned) then hit the OK button with the lyrics panel empty, the lyrics will be overwritten and stripped from the file.
