MiniLyrics - Auto download and display scrolling lyrics in Winamp

Staff review

View and get your song lyrics.

This runs as a plug-in and an exe but the system works well and it's put together very well. When testing the songs that it did fine picked up the correct lyrics and the windowed display was clear and easy to watch. Updated: The Winamp skinned window can now be re-shown if closed with the added main menu item - it would be more consistant if the entry was there throughout the time Winamp is running.Did notice that occasionally a non-skinned window frame appears at least with the skinned Winamp version of the lyrics window (under Win7).


great. even covered korean song - January 23, 2011 by aina

awesome !! - September 23, 2010 by [email protected]

Absolutely great lyric plugin, easy and very smart, I can say - February 23, 2010 by Pedro Charputa

Absolutely great - I think this plug-in is really amazing, BUT there is one annoying thing. When there is missing lyrics for a certain song the update window pops up and when you play a game or have something important to do and this window pops up few times each 5-10 min it annoys you. I have an suggesstion: Make a lyrics search for the current playlist and if there are missing lyrics update them, or not, and then there won't be poping up messages in the middle of the songs, etc. - August 25, 2009 by john_laf4eto

Nice program - This plug-in is really great. Lyrics are synchronized so you can follow it easily. Even you minimize the winamp you can read the lyrics on the top of screen.I suggest everyone to use this plug-in :) - August 22, 2009 by drizz_z

Shareware - O minilyrics funciona no como um plugin mas sim como programa independente! optimo pois encontra todas as letras e tem um aspecto muito bom. A nota s no maxima porque apenas funciona 30 dias no freeware mas sim shareware... - July 23, 2009 by cabonnis

Awesome - Best version is available at the give site. It has really impressive graphicsIt supports many players.......Also its FREE again. - February 15, 2009 by john brown

THE BEST !!!!!!!!!!!!!! - After i've test many other lyrics plugin i found the best. It runs perfectly. My advice too. Download it. - January 22, 2009 by Helder Lima

Trojan! - Unfortunately unable to rate this, since Spybot S&D immediately found a trojan (zlob.downloader.sot). - September 3, 2008 by Job Vondeling

A great plug-in. - Excelent plug-in, and works very fine.My advice: download and install it now!! - June 22, 2008 by Gregorio Carneros

Don't display embedded lyrics. - I just found out by accident that Winamp can read lyrics embedded in midi files, but unfortunately, there's no autoscroll or autoformat, so you have to scroll by yourself, so I downloaded this plug-in because I thought it was going to read the lyrics from the midi files as well.But unfortunately, this plug-in only seem to use it's own system and file format, thus rendering it pretty inferior to the built-in lyrics shower in Winamp and pretty useless to me. =/Also, it took me a while to even get the window to appear on screen when playing the midi file (the one in winamp appeared on it's own as soon I started playing a midi song).Work on the midi implementation and I'll probably ll give it a 5 though. :) - April 22, 2008 by Tomas Rauhala

realy great!!! - this is the best lyrics plugin ever! - April 2, 2008 by Rudi Ruisz

Very Good! - I think its thwe best lyrics plug-in outta the whole lot....Its has great features, just one more addition would make it perfect - a skin that matches with the big bento skin in.... And probably a more fixed place in the winamp window... Overall - 4 out of 5... Very good! - February 1, 2008 by Shikher Sitoke

ok - i like itt - December 10, 2007 by cicak men

Best Lyrics plugin of the ones I tried - I tried to find a better lyrics plugin, but I didn't find one. This one is the best. It is shareware, so unless it's registered it annoys you with a nag screen at startup. I also suspect it of sometimes crashing Winamp, but I cannot be sure of that because I haven't used Winamp long enough without any plugin.The advantages of this plugin:- Can load lyrics from mp3 file itself and/or from online database- Can save lyrics to mp3 file- Has a built-in lyrics editor. Not very easy to use, but still much better than not having it.- Unlike Leo's Lyrics plugin, it displays them synched with the music. (and the sync. points can be corrected in the editor when needed). - December 2, 2007 by Raoul Duke

It was great... - Yes, the idea is nice, but there are too much bugs. Firstly media lybrary was affected, and then Winamp did not started at all because of this. It just hanged. Tried to reinstall - the same. But firstly it worked fine. I'll try to restore it. - November 1, 2007 by Vitaliy Alexeyev

nothing - nothing... - September 25, 2007 by Nilkamal Mher

That's all - That's plugin is a great profit for Winamp.Is a incredible mini program. Good work. - September 25, 2007 by Cristian Gitrama

Great! - Just great, it's a really good! and have a big database - September 22, 2007 by Johann Ramirez

Cool!! - Too much little bugs. But really an fantastic thing. Don't know if the bugs would go away with the buy-able version. - September 22, 2007 by Jamppa Tuominen

Its the best - Its impossible being better!!! - July 28, 2007 by Sapo Cururu

mini - Free Trial!! I hate dl'ing and finding out its a dang trial.Its a really good little unit,with a huge database,its pickin up nearly everything! from punk to old school Jazz... Might be worth payin for,definitely one of the better ones I'v tried. My only complaint(other than having to pay for it after 30 er 60 days)is it likes to jump around my monitor.You set it one place,and at the start of the next song its bigger,and moves,then the next song,it resizes and moves again to accomodate the lyric file.That kinda bugs me if Im tryin to get some work done(yea right). - April 25, 2007 by Barry Wilson

I am annoyed - I did not like this plugin very much. First off, it is more of an independent program that runs alongside winamp than a plugin. Secondly, after uninstalling it, every time I open Winamp I began seeing a pop-up which would crash Winamp. I would like to not have to reinstall Winamp and find new copies of all of my other plugins because of my distaste for one of them. - March 27, 2007 by John Simpson

Fantastic! - Very awesome tool, makes the Winamp experience complete. Don't have the lyrics you need? No worries, just download them! Although not completely bug-free, it's still one of the best Winamp tools I use. - October 13, 2006 by Janiru Herath

WOW... - i have to say, the best thing's that have ever happened to music on pc are winamp alongiwth minilyrics... this makes listening to songs a complete experience... 5 stars all the way. Although yes, there is missing one thing, which is an option to add a line break while creating scrolling or otherwise normal lyrics. IF that is too, fixed, then minilyrics is definately the only choice for winamp lyrics support. Thanks alot for creating such a wonderful plugin! - August 18, 2006 by Dhruv Arora

Great! - This is one of the best lyrics plugins I've tried. Easy to use, yet enough functionality to create great scrolling lyrics. The only feuture missing imo is the ability to add a pause in the middle of a line. That would really make karaoke syncing a lot better and easier. Still gets five stars though. - March 24, 2006 by Kim Johnsson

Amazing - For ages I had this idea in the back of my mind to make this and i searched far and wide for something like this (aka... google) and then finally decided to try the winamp page. Out of all the lyrics readers I tried (and there were MANY) this was by FAR the BEST one! Not only is it easy to use, and has a great database of lyrics, its amazingly easy to create and time your own lyrics as well. 5 out of 5 for sure! - March 18, 2006 by Justin Dips

It broke the ML... - The actual lyrics part worked fine (well, the buttons appearing/disappearing when the mouse went over the window was pretty irritating, but whatever). But if I ever close the lyrics window the media library will no longer open until I restart winamp. Not cool. - February 24, 2006 by Emily A

Excellent Plugin! - Great work! One of the best plugins I've ever seen. It works perfectly on me. - February 22, 2006 by Dominic Erland

Good one - The lyrics auto-scrolling feature is nice. Very configurable. The only bad thing is pretty poor database. Luckily it's growing all the time and adding lyrics to the database is very easy. - December 29, 2005 by Antti Ruokomaeki

Dont know yet. - I've been looking for A Closed Captioned program for A while.... Is this the same thing? My wife lost her hearing when she had tumors removed A few years ago .... I know she wont ever "Hear" music again but she can at least see the words. how do I do that? I hope this works. Ill let you know later. - September 17, 2005 by Chris Scogin

Learning to Sing - I have only praise for this novel plug-in. I can follow singing my fave selection. Tried it with winamp music selection and found that there were songs that it has no lyrics yet. Sometimes, the server gets busy and asked you to connect again. And then the pop ups... other than these, I can just say, wowow! Thanks. - September 12, 2005 by Archimedes Lachica

Mini Lyrics 3 - I have tried alot of lyrics plug ins. Most work OK. But this one is awesome! It has songs in it's data base that I was sure no one else listens to. Out of my collection of 6,000 mp3's, it has over 85%. You can update the data base, too. It's pretty damn cool. Give it a shot. - August 30, 2005 by Robert Base

...Whoa. - I was blown away by this. Very nice work on this plug-in -- it even nailed the lyrics to some of my DDR music! This plugin is very much awesome! Five out of five, man! - August 25, 2005 by Josh Redmon

Pretty impressive database - I've been looking for a decent lyric plug-in for some time, but my taste in music is pretty eclectic -- everything from classical to punk -- which makes it difficult to find lyrics for everything. With most lyrics plug-ins, I've spent more time using the "edit" function to create my own than using the database. I was pleasantly surprised to find that this plug-in's database held lyrics for some of my more obscure mp3's. Out of the first 25 I tried, only one mp3 had no luck finding lyrics. I've found stuff for everything from Alkaline Trio to Anti-Flag to Alison Krauss. From Carly Simon to the Chemical Brothers. From Tina Turner to Veruca Salt. I found lyrics for "O Fortuna." In Latin. LATIN, people! I found a lyric file for "Scotty Doesn't Know," and I'm one of the only three people who saw "Eurotrip." I think I love this thing. - July 29, 2005 by Craig Turner

NOT BAD - this plug-in is really not bad. but i think there are some few bugs in it.. like for every 5 or more songs the whole winamp crushes down. the database for the songs are not bad as well, options for the lyrics scrolling and all that is pretty cool too. so far this is the best plug-in for the lyrics thing. the rest are absolute waste. ey why for the last couple of years nullsoft upgrading winamp haven't they thought of these before? i'm sure they could do better. cheers. - July 12, 2005 by Cornelius 3

GREAT - This is great. Good work. - June 22, 2005 by Alexandru Adam

Add more lyrics - a lot of songs find nothing or are txt files so they don't sync and u gotta scroll...more lyrics should by added in lrc format so it will scroll on its own - January 26, 2005 by Kevin Osborne

Excellent! - Works smoothly, looks nice, is easy to use and most of all a plugin that really adds value to the player. I'ld rather give 8 stars! - January 5, 2005 by Michael Utech

MiniLyrics is Cool! - I downloaded MiniLyrics plugin yesterday,it's very easy to use and u can easily download the lyrics from the given sever itself.but i think u have to upload more lyrics in the database. - January 3, 2005 by Syed Nizam

Love it! - I have tried several other similar software. This one is the most user friendly. It is very easy to install and fun to use. Whenever I play the mp3 with Winamp, the cute lyrics window is always up. I really love this software! Keep up good work! - December 29, 2004 by William Cornnor

Bad luck - I coul not dowloud eny lyrics and the winamp totaly crashed :(... now i can't listen music eaven after uninstalling the minilyrics... bad luck i think... hope it would work for u :( - December 29, 2004 by Johannes Heinsoo

Just Beautiful! - I have been waiting for such a software to come for a long time and finally it appears and it meets my expection. It just works as it claims beautifully. The design is neat and very intuitive. Lyrics are timely matched with the song. I can't say it is perfect right now,for example the database needs to be further expanded, but I believe it will become one of the best lyrics plugin on the earth. You have my vote. - December 26, 2004 by David Sawyer

Hmmmm - Hmmmm. Cant get it to use the lyrics after DL. Also it cant find any of the music. ANY. - December 26, 2004 by Chris Downey
