Possibility to show synced lyrics for streams

Recommended Posts

I'm talking about lyrics supplied by plugins. While continuously listening to a URL, the metadata changing event of the stream can be taken as a reference for track starting time, then it may be possible to show synced lyrics for streams too. Also the supplied lyrics for the previous track can be cleared and send the lyrics request broadcast for the new track(ACTION_NEED_LYRICS).
I'm not sure about the reliability of this method, may be buffering, or audio processing delay could affect the reference time point and may spoil the syncing.

here is a link I tested: https://stream-156.zeno.fm/agtp9c146qzuv

An interesting idea, but it would be very unlikely to work with synced lyrics as the start times can be imprecise for radio stations (they rarely play songs perfectly from beginning to end) and there are so many varied edits of songs out there. It might be possible to update unsynced lyrics though I guess, if the particular radio station broadcasts accurate title/artist details for each new song.
