What I mean is, is there a way to add lyrics to the file so that no matter what audio software you use, be it iTunes, Windows Media Player, Winamp, whatever, the lyrics will still show up. Similar to how the artist, album, track number, etc. I really don't want to have to manually add the lyrics in each individual software just to be sure that users of each software can see the lyrics.
I ask this because I'm a musician with a Soundcloud page and I would like it if people could download my tracks and have the lyrics available no matter what software they use.
Therefore plugins to find lyrics online are of no use to me in this situation since no one knows who I am haha. I hope this has made sense and someone can give me some information since as I stated, searching for answers on google has proved fruitless.
Thank you! Please note, that you have to prefix a language identifier in front of the lyrics or "xxx" if you want the lyrics to show in any language. Also you have to add two "bars": xxx My lytics.
There is no guarantee that "any" player will show the lyrics as this is down to the features of the player. Thank you so much ohrenkino! I had the language identifier but was missing the two bars. Now it's tagging just as I wanted. Your information was a huge help so again, thank you! You can create your own MP3 file. But so many people have set their systems up to play MP3 files these days — on their PCs and on music players such as the Apple iPod — that you may as well go with the flow.
If you have a Mac, it includes well-regarded built-in software to accomplish these tasks called iLife; please refer to the iLife documentation for steps. They have limited hard drive or flash drive space, so with compression we can carry around a lot more music. Plus there's no need for full resolution files when we're doing yard work or at the gym using tiny sports earphones.
It's also a huge space and bandwidth saver for online streaming services. In fact, MP3's are just the 3rd layer set apart for audio on the video files. It's all the same technology. Here's where it gets crazy. The people who designed these compression algorithms used our knowledge of psychoacoustics to manage the data bandwidth.
Psychoacoustics refers to how our brain interprets sounds. The brain uses certain tricks like auditory masking to allocate resources and attention to what is the most important sound happening at any given time. Using this info, we know what we can get rid of, data-wise. The first and easiest savings are to go ahead and cut out a certain frequency range if the music allows for it. Adults begin to lose their capacity for hearing above kHz, whereas the top limit for humans is around 24 kHz.
At that level there's not a lot going on in terms of intelligibility. It's just "sparkle, shine, sheen. In most cases, we don't need to have it at all or at least can encode it into the MP3 file at a lower resolution.
This refers to something our ears and brains do called simultaneous masking. Basically, if a loud sound is blaring out over the top of a lot of low-volume sounds, you're naturally going to focus on the loud sound. What this means is that we can spend lot less data on the quiet sounds. They don't need as much detail encoded in them during those times. In the same fashion above, if two sound events occur within milliseconds of each other, we're only going to be able to focus on the loudest one.
It's how we've been evolutionarily primed to react. Our ears and minds can't separate events that close in time. File formats. Page Layout. Raster image. Vector image. Bookmark and share page.

ISO/IEC defines the range of values for each section of the header along with the specification of the header. Most MP3 files today contain ID3 metadata, which precedes or follows the MP3 frames; as noted in the diagram. Source code of LAME.
