Taken a while to work out patches. This patch does what does for the most recent build.

My next plan is to try to use wps to store lyrics in a 2D array: a line of lyrics and a time stamp. I would still like to keep using the txt viewer method though.

I have not been working on this as I have been waiting for the audio buffer to be structured to enable extra data to be stored before the audio data. I am not sure of the progress of the audio buffer.

I am still keen to implement this once buffered meta data is up and running

Hi I have USLT lyrics in my mp3 collection, I would love to have a way to view 'em. I realize you are waiting for the metadata stuff to make more changes, but could you update your patch in the meantime? I would be grateful...

I think this should be closed. If I don't get any reason why not to close, I'll close this in the next few days
