Default Adding timed lyrics to Audio file - lrc-file on mp3 player

Adding lyrics to a mp3 or other audio file is nice.

Much nicer is it when you can play the audio file and the lyrics are shown (on your mp3 player) when they are sung. Timed lyrics, subtitles so to speak.

DivXLand Media Subtitler is capable of doing that.
( For an youtube instruction see: )

Now I have been able to complete a song but have encountered some problems which I think Media Subtitler can resolve fairly easily.

1. Media Subtitler works with Windows Media Player and only claims to load .wav files.
That is a bit of a bummer since the vast majority of the files on duh! MP3 players are MP3 formatted. (or .wma, flac, ape etc).
Anyway, I renamed a mp3 file into wav and although I got a warning message that it would only accept uncompressed wav files.
I NOW FIND THAT YOU CAN LOAD AN AUDIO FILE ON THE PLAYER (not audio bar; see communication window) and then it accepts wav, mp3, snd, au, aif, wma.
So I suppose that takes care of a lot of problems.
Remaining files e.g. flac should probably first be converted before timing the lyrics and then they could be combined with the flac file.

2. Is it not possible to edit times or duration from within the program by manually entering/correcting digits ?

3. When loading a saved lrc file DivXLand Media Subtitler ruins the timing.

[00:10.86]With his arms around your love
[00:14.74]Oh no, here comes the pain that you can't ignore
What is the problem here ?
(Note: the program 'Subtitle Workshop' does load the file without changing the times/durations.)
I have unchecked all Timing Management options in the General Settings.

If DivXLand Media Subtitler can solve this (or show me what I'm doing wrong) it would not surprise me if it can grow into a great popularity because subtitling song on an MP3 (MP4 or MP5) player can be big fun !

I will surely tell and post about it !

So please give this your kind attention and I hope we can make this work.

Thanks in advance and greetings from snowwhite the Netherlands !
