MyLyrics displays the lyric of the currently played song in MediaPortal.
The plugin can show LRC's and plain lyrics. It uses music tags and online access in its search. You can even create your very own LRC file from a plain lyric with the built-in LRC editor and share it with the community.
LRC is a computer file format that synchronizes song lyrics with an audio file, such asMP3Vorbis or MIDI.  The lyrics file generally has the same name as the audio file, with a different filename extension. For example, song.mp3 and song.lrc.

  • Browse your music database and select the songs to which you want to find lyrics.

  • Add/delete/edit lyrics and save changes in lyrics databases.
