OK, but i found error - this plug-in become error when using MM3 skins - May 16, 2008 by harry santoso

The Compleat Lyric Plugin - Belying its modest aesthetic, this must be the cleanest, most helpful lyric plug in available. A true classic, it still works great for me. Unlike the trashy coding of other plug ins, this one is no muss and no fuss. Saving lyrics in lyric3.2 format, there's never a need to search databases or lrc files. It works consistently, unobtrusively, and plays nice with your other windows. No, it has no search, but we know how to use google, right? I've used this lyrics plug in since it came out. It still can't be beat. - July 26, 2007 by Shufei Wu

awsome - it`s a good plugins.. i find just one error.. isn`t work with the last version of winamp.. :(.. - June 15, 2007 by Octavio Ruiz

Used to be the best lyrics plugin - This plugin is now showing its age, and as of version 5.24 it will crash winamp. (it was working fine on 5.2) I had emailed the author to ask why he stopped developing it and offering to continue its development if he would pass the source code, but he advised that he lost all the source code (along with the rest of the dat on his HD) at some point. Nevertheless I would like to thank Carlos very much for letting me do kareoke on winamp for years using his plugin. - August 5, 2006 by heroshi hiroshi

Not Good - This Plugin ruined my Winamp. I can\\\'t delete it. Don\\\'t download this b/c it doesn\\\'t work. - May 29, 2006 by Erich Morton

Old and incompatible - This version will crash your Winamp so remove the *.dll from your plugin directory before resorting to a reinstall. Why this version is still on the Winamp d/l site is beyond me... - May 1, 2006 by Alatari Smith

Great Thing - The suggested WinLyric is the greatest lyric search engine i've ever used so far!! - July 12, 2005 by fairuz rashid

Renamed to WinLyrics - Winamp Lyrics has been renamed to WinLyrics due to some problems with WinAmp lawyers or what. Search for WinLyrics for the latest version (2.xx) or go to - September 25, 2004 by O Pi

Where are you Carlos? - This is an "almost perfect" plug-in. I've used this plug-in for more than two years. The only problem is that it's not really skinable. I'd like to recommend nullsoft-winamp take this as a built-in or add-in in its future vesion, although it is too late now (WMP9 already does) . In my opinion this much more useful than vis, video player, crossfader. etc; particularly for non-native english people. - May 7, 2004 by Early Morning

It sucks - All those windows into one... pretty crowded in there ... there's a much better plugin on this site - August 5, 2003 by Alex Szasz

Don't read - Don't read the type os lyrics tagged in my mp3(I used the MP3Ext 3.4 to tag it). - July 9, 2003 by Vinicius Moreira de Oliveira

Whow!! - Man, it's good! I have no doubt at all to give it 4 stars. Simple but nice. I'll give it 5 stars if it can be improved to show tha lyrics line by line. But it's tha best I ever bump to. - June 24, 2003 by Armalani Iswandani

(almost) Perfect! - when it'll use an Internet database it'll get its 5th star:) - May 20, 2003 by rainbow demon

Nothing is perfect, but it can be this close =P - I think it's great. I didn't give it 5 stars because I found it a little bit difficult to understand at first. See, I didn't know how to use it with txt files until I noticed the system tray icon and I changed the configuration. So... once I figured that out, it worked perfectly. Maybe you should think of adding that Setting Menu in the tool box on the window (maybe is already there and I haven't seen it, but just in case). Y por ultimo, el que dijo que tenia que haber uno para Winamp 3, tiene razon. Do it! jaja - January 29, 2003 by Mariana Segulin

Not Bad at All - pretty good keep on improving this one been looking for one that truly works well and this one does what is expected - October 4, 2002 by Stephen Connelly

A great one... - In my opinion it's THE BEST lyrics viewer I've ever seen. You should check it out befere You try to test any other programs reading lyrics. - August 31, 2002 by Piotrek B

MAKE ONE FOR WINAMP 3.... LOL - Aight... Your program's really cool. I like the way i can choose either to save my lyrics on lrc or txt format. Now, I took off one star cuz it's using too much system resources; not exactly too much as to crash my computer, but it's not normal that my computer has to use 50% resources to change songs while using winamp and stop for like 2 secs in between songs even though i'm using a crossfader, whereas w/o the lyrics it tops 6%. It's k tho.. no big issue. Now, the real issue is that YOU MUST, or should i say PLEASE... whatever u want me to say, think that i said it.. but POR FAVOR, make a Winamp3 version.... ;) Ciao Tocayo. - August 20, 2002 by Carlos Ortiz

Winamp Lyrics rulezz! - There are two sample skins for the plug-in at and when I have time, i'll make some more. It you want to edit the skin, you should edit lyrics.bmp which is in the skin directory. Please contact me at [email protected] with any queations, comments, and suggestions. Also, please send me your lyrics so that we could make the biggest web site for sharing timestamped lyrics. - July 26, 2002 by Sonya Blade

help me - i think this plug-in is great but i have a problem with it i cant change it with skins, i have already read the readme file but it doesnt help me at all. how can i use the skins? can anybody write it in a new review please. - July 15, 2002 by juan 10101

Hmm.... - Making a plug-in easy to use seems a foreign concept to some people. Complete shit. - July 6, 2002 by Tom Scott

Winamp Images - Can somebody tell me how can I put a image in this excelent program please. My e-mail is [email protected] - June 30, 2002 by Geovany Guevara

it is GREAT! - It REALLY works! auto-scrolling, auto resizing window, lyrics3 format (saving lyrics into the mp3 file), easy-to-use lyrics editor, skins... It doesn't have any of the disadvantages marked in the other reviews (I guess people just didn't know how to use the plu-in when posted their reviews). To download timestamped lyrics, please visit - April 7, 2002 by Sarah Kerrigan

Wow, fantastic! - This is just what I've been looking for since many days, and I have to say that it's better than I thought. Congratulations, Carlos!! Es exactamente lo que he estado buscando durante muchos d?as, y tengo que decir que es mejor de lo que hab?a pensado. ??Felicidades, Carlos!! - April 1, 2002 by Jorge Diz

Excelent! - Ive been usin this plug in now for over 6 months, and it rocks! a lot of my mp3's now have lyrics stored inside them (lyrics3 format) and every time a friend comes by, they ask me how i do that. trust me, its cool! also check the reproduction control on the creator's site. perfect if you want your computer to automatically play on start up, and many many many more cool features. Greetz, Casper - February 22, 2002 by Casper Groot, de

Can't get auto-scroll working - Maybe it's only me, but is there an auto-scroll function? I can't get it working. Is this only a lyrics editor? (i.e. not a scroller) The other features are working fine though. - January 4, 2002 by Eugene Sia

didn't work the way i expected - the idea is cool but it didn't work with the lyrics i saved into the mp3 file. lyrics3 v1.18 works better, but doesn't look as nice as this one. - October 15, 2001 by Jose Castellon

Fairly good - The nice thing is that it supports TXT. Maybe I would give it 4 stars if I didn't try LyricsShow 1.52. - August 24, 2001 by Ken Lepond

El Mejor Plug in de lyrics - Me gusta esa opcion de skins de Sony. Tambien que se puedan guardar las canciones en el archivo mp3 - July 18, 2001 by Hazur Socconini Alvarado

The Best - It?s easy to use, it?s free and support winamp skins. I think there?s nothing better. Facil de usar, gratis y soporta las pieles del winamp. Creo que no hay nada mejor. - July 11, 2001 by William Arias

Automatic line control wanted... - Wonderful plug-in! But, automatic line change to fit the screen's width when using text file is greatly wanted. Hope this to be included in the next version. Other than that, great job done! - July 11, 2001 by sy kim

Great idea! - A good idea! Keep improving this plug-ins. You're deserved to get five stars for this. But, it seems this plug-ins doesn't support any other skins but the Winamp base skin. If you make it support any other skins, it would be better. - May 30, 2001 by Marcellinus Ferdinand Suciadi

The best lyric viewer - This is the best lyrics viewer. Easy to use. Make listening to mp3 nicer. - April 6, 2001 by maarten kaskens

Excellent! - This has got to be one of the best ideas for Winamp! Great job, easy to use! Highly reccommended! 5-Star!! - April 2, 2001 by Michael Bagley
