View Full Version : LRC files?
16th October 2001, 23:22
Just wondering if Milkdrop will ever gain the ability to read and display the lyrics to a song while it is playing. I use a plugin called LyricsShow which displays them in a new window and it can also show them in AVS. Milkdrop looks way better than AVS but if I use it I lose the ability to sing along with my music :(
Would it be very hard to code milkdrop so that it could read LyricsShow's LRC files and display the lyrics in its own presets?
Thanks for reading,

I use LyricsShow myself, and there is an exceedingly simple solution.
Set LyricsShow to take up a relatively small area of the screen (coupl of lines down the bottom, or on the side of the screen, or wherever.
Run Milkdrop in Windowed mode, and resize the window to fill the rest of the screen.
If you shrink the start menu, and set all the relevant windows colours to black, you can hardly tell the difference.

Yeah, it works...but MilkDrop runs slower in windowed mode than it does in fullscreen. What I want to know is if MilkDrop could be programmed to read the LRC files and display them in its own presets, like AVS does.
But thanks anyways!

I also feel this would be a spiffy feature, but I have to ask...have you really given windowed mode a try? As we recently discussed on the preset creation board, we think the FPS reported by Milkdrop is actually internal calculations, not frames rendered. In theory, the presets as a whole will move "slower", the actual rendered output shouldn't look "choppy", and at least under testing on my (extremely slow) machine, an FPS of as low as 14 or so can still yield excellent performance.
