Default Viewing Lyrics in Rockbox?

Just recently I've come across posts regarding viewing song lyrics while songs are playing on your e200 which until now I haven't paid much attention to but now want to know more how to do it..?

I've been on the Rockbox site and have some some info about Sncviewer, but am confused as to what file format is best to view the lyrics in and where these files should be put on your player??.

Any info on this would be much appreciated!

You can find more information about your questions at: http://www.rockbox.org/tracker/7432. Just download "sncviewer.txt"; it contains instructions for installation (ignore those) and usage. Search up:
Code:
lrc file: synchronized lyrics file (with timetags)
and start reading.

To answer your first question:
.snc/.lrc is best because they're already synchronized, but you'll need to find them on the internet or make them yourself
embedded is discouraged because it only works for mp3 and the process requires Minilyrics *shudder* (by me anyways =p)
.txt is alright because you can just copy/paste lyrics off a website and sync them yourself in sncviewer (use REC to set time tag and hold REC to save)
.bmp is really your own preference (personally, I think it's a lot of work...)

To answer your second question:
Any file used for lyrics should be put in the same folder as the music file and with the same name as well.

thanks for the detailed description WakDooD!. Much appreciated. I got the .txt file from Rockbox.org and will read it and hopefully it shouldn't be too difficult.

Thanks.
