Minilyrics support?

Post by Raffhell »

I know that MM5 actually support lyrics, but I really miss the ease of use - especially the editor - of standalone Minilyrics which development halted (so no MM5 plugin for it).

So the question is: can I use my *.lrc files with some other addon/software in MM5?

Thanks, and have a good day ^^

Hi,
There is no plans for direct lrc support ATM, than what actually is made. We opened up things a little as now you have Playing -> Lyrics view which can be later expanded further.

Tnx. I really hope some good alternative - which also support MM5 - to minilyrics exist... but I fear not.

Once MM5 is out I would not be surprised that new plugins emerge.

Sadly, I doubt it. Last version was released on 2015 and the software is still commercial -- even if the latest free version is fully functional -- so there is not a big community interest in fixing the generic plugin. Also, there is not a working contact form anymore. It probably still works with any other players but not (anymore) with the better one ;)
Also, there is a very small chance to make it work, loading as visualizer or something similar in MM5, but not exactly sure how the ML hooking dll worked on MM4. It probably used the same mechanism of Winamp plugins on which the software still works.
Looking for alternatives too, but still slightly tricky as the instruction are for MM4 where ironically most of them work out the box; but yeah, usually such softwares don't forgot MediaMonkey ^^,

Could you give a few examples of .lrc files? I can't make any promises, but I can look into the possibility at least. Though displaying lyrics in realtime would take a considerable bit of work, it might be feasible in the short-term to simply import the .lrc file and rearrange it into a single string that can be saved and shown in the regular lyrics window.

Having the hook fixed will be the best solution for a simple reason: the editor of MiniLyrics allow to do lrc files within minutes and the whole software still support most of "legacy" players as Winamp or Windows Media Player. Also, there is already a karaoke lyric popup function (which is the best function of ML imho).
