Or is it?

I might have jumped on the gun on this.. I did some research and apparently, the lyric tag is not that common / standard, I have and old version of Tag & Rename which already supports it, but even if it is encoded on the file (like I have on a couple of mp3's) Winamp can't access it. I thought it would be accesible through the SC:TextObjects ( script, but it isn't.

So, end of the line here..

Yeah, it doesn't make sense for the player to look online everytime a song is played, it should at least save it locally and only perform an online search when needed.
