Poweramp

Recommended Posts

Poweramp lacks LRC support which is a huge let down for me since I prefer offline LRC files to online lyrics providers such as Musixmatch.

The app also lacks timed lyrics support as well as font size adjustment for lyrics.

I would have used Musixmatch but here are the key points which are keeping me on the LRC team.

- No need for internet

- No need for song recognition since we're only loading text from files located somewhere in the storage. Also, song recognition fails for most non-english songs or the lyrics just aren't there on the server, and here LRC files are a huge savior.

- Also solves language issues

Currently I'm using Retro Music Player which has a great LRC support(though it lacks font size adjustment). It should serve as a good example for implementing this feature. I like Poweramp but the lack of LRC support is keeping me from changing my music player. I would switch to Poweramp as soon as this feature is implemented.

While LRC sidecar files are not supported, lyrics embedded with the actual audio files are (albeit unsynced, as PA does not handle synced karaoke-style lyrics at all).

Maybe one day PA will support synced lyrics, but I don't think karaoke is top of Max's priority list. :) (Yeah, I know it has other useful purposes, but I suspect that would be the main one)
