How to Display Synchronized Lyrics in Windows Media Player/WinAmp


You need to create an .lrc file. 

.lrc file is a simple text file as shown below. In the example below, the first line is a tag for title, and subsequent lines are synchronized lyrics. There can be more tags for singer, composer, etc. The numbers before the lyrics indicate the starting time in [minutes:seconds]

Lyrics in Win Media Player

[ti:Agar tum mil jao]
[00:42.41]Agar tum mil jao
[00:45.42]Zamana chhod denge hum
[00:54.54] Agar tum mil jao
[00:57.56] Zamana chhod denge hum
[01:00.76] Agar tum mil jao
[01:03.57] Zamana chhod denge hum
[01:06.82]Tumhe paa kar zamane bhar se rishta tod denge hum
[01:12.88] Agar tum mil jao
[01:15.89] Zamana chhod denge hum

In this example shown above, lyrics will not be synchronized word by word, but the full line will be displayed as per the time stamps. This should be good enough for an experienced singer.

Rename the .lrc file with the same name as your mp3 file (for example xyz.mp3 lyrics file should have name as xyz.lrc). Copy the .lrc file into your mp4 player in the same folder as your song.
