VLC LrcView extensionThis is a Lua-based extension for VLC 2.x showing lyrics from external files (.lrc or .txt) matching the input filename.
It is meant as a replacement for the old Winamp WinLyrics plugin.
To install, download the lrcview.lua file in the "/lua/extensions" VLC subdir (e.g. for Linux is "$HOME/.local/share/vlc/lua/extensions/"), then activate from the "View" menu.
You can customize the external scripts invoked in the very first lines of the code, some example scripts are provided below.
Not-TODO: (do not ask for these)
download external scripts (optional):
pbcopy pbcopy.bat (for copy to clipboard)
translate translate.bat (requires curl and an internet connection to Google Translate)
transliterate transliterate.bat (requires uconv, for better Japanese support grab jakaroma)
