    whenever i try to queue up a song the syncronized lyrics won't appear. it
    appears that everytime you want to see some syncronized lyrics you'll have to
    click every song you want for syncronized lyrics to appear

    Could you not have posted this as one post ? Sheesh.
    Probably "synchronised lyrics" are the worst implemented feature of
    anything ever placed into media player. They're hard to edit and even
    harder to synchronise.

    You might want to add a caption / subtitle (SAMI) file instead - a
    captions file of the same name (but ending in .smi not .wma) in the
    music folder will automatically be picked up by the player, and shown
    in the subtitles area.
    Yeah, you can only do colour highlighting with SAMI files.

  4. My site has a browser based captioning tool. I'll
    probably make it free once I get back from the states early October. I
    made it mostly to provide subtitles for deaf users wanting to watch
    internet video, but it has other uses.

    The browser tool loads the video or audio, then you play/pause your
    way through the track, adding lyrics. When the file's complete (expect
    about 3-4x longer than the track to caption it, once you're up to
    speed) then it's posted to the server, which converts it to a SAMI

    You can then download the SAMI file as required from the website's
    admin area. Dropping the SAMI file into the folder with your music is
    enough for media player to pick it up, and display the subtitles in
    the captions area.

    If you need to set colours, you can do that too, by assigning an
    "actor" to each block of lyrics. You can pick the text colour for the
    "actor" and that can be displayed in media player etc.
