I have both synchronized and unsynchronized lyrics embedded in my music files, and I have set the minilyrics plugin to display synchronized lyrics in it's native floating window. But MB also displays the synchronized lyrics by default. This is redundant. I can't find any option to change this behaviour. Is there any way to give priority to unsynchronized lyrics?

No replies yet... Am I being stupid or ignorant? :-X Have I missed an obvious option? :-\ I tried searching the forum but found nothing helpful. It seems synchronized lyrics take over the priority whenever they are present. :o Isn't it kind of unfair? Shouldn't we have the right to choose between the two types instead of letting one take over the other?

If you have lyrics embedded into the track, it should display whatever is there (and ONLY if lyrics are embedded for Theatre Mode display)..
I wasn't aware you could have BOTH and LRC and TEXT lyrics in the same file?, but then I ONLY have synched (LRC)....!

P.S @frankz has done a lot of good work regarding lyrics  ;)

Thanks for the reply! I have both TEXT and LRC embedded to my files. Apparently, MB automatically chooses to display LRC lyrics everywhere (in Now Playing, Lyrics panel, Floating Lyrics Window and Theater Mode). I want MB to display TEXT lyrics instead. Is there any method to get this done?

I'm not sure that there is, but there are lots of MB aficionados on the forums that may provide an answer, not everyone signs on every day.
If it can't be done with the current version, if it's important to you, you can make a request by posting in the Wishlist section of the forums...
