[00:03] Watching your favorite song with subtitle appears on the screen like karaoke is so cool.
[00:09] And it also helps you learn a foreign language, beyond watching movies, TV shows, etc.
[00:15] The bad news is OSD Lyrics of Ubuntu/Linux doesn't have any version for Windows.
The good one is MiniLyrics of CrintSoft will help your Win/Mac/Android.
[00:50] Basically, it is a plugin for your media player program like WMP, Spotify, FooBar, etc.
[00:56] When you play music, it will detect the song, download the suitable subtitle and display it on your desktop, like karaoke.
[1:17] "Lyrics plugin software for iTunes, Windows Media Player, Winamp, etc. You needn't change the way of enjoying music.
– Display scrolling lyrics, you can follow along with the artist and catch every word.
– Automatically search and download lyrics.
– Huge lyrics database, and it is expanding every day.
– Download and save lyrics in your song files, you can view these lyrics on your iPod or iPhone.
– Amazing translucency skins.

[1:45] The installation process is simple: download, install, integrate, run. Take care of these notes.
[2:22] You can run MiniLyrics from the Start Menu/Desktop.
In the first run, it will ask you for the default music player, WMP 32-bit is mine.
[2:28] Normal, it works beautifully, you just need to play lovely songs and watch cute lyrics are being displayed :)
However, I have two troubles for you:
– If your music .mp3 file has wrong metadata info (title doesn't matter), MiniLyrics will fail at searching.
For example: Until You – Shayne Ward.mp3 has Artist: Until You, Title: Shayne Ward is a wrong one.
– MiniLyrics on the desktop interference your other activities.
[2:57] For the metadata problem, you need to search the lyrics manually or fix this information via a tool called Picard on my YouTube channel.
[3:47] Now, for better accessibility and look, you should tweak these settings: – Font Face, Size, Color of the lyric
– Display style
[5:08] You can always access MiniLyics from the Start Menu/Desktop.
Font Size and Color.
Try what you want!
[5:24] And the Integrate Wizard which will help MiniLyrics works with your media players.
[5:47] You can access advanced settings by Right click on the interface.
Most of which are simply clickable options.
[5:55] Lyrics search, edit, rate, etc.
[6:08] UI Skin for your favorites.
[6:57] Now, Display Options. I recommend you Antialiasing, Movie Subtitle Style, Mouse Click Through and Karaoke.

[10:48] Other interesting options about the Background.
Leave "Use album art…" alone because all you need is the subtitle.

[12:15] Be careful with Advanced options!
