I know you can find songs without lyrics (unsynchronized) by using auto playlists or the find songs with missing lyrics tool, but I'm trying to add synchronized lyrics to songs that don't have them but I cannot seem to find a way to sort by synchronized lyrics instead of unsynchronized in the auto playlists options or by using the tool.  Anyone know how to do this if its possible?

You can create an auto-playlist, a filter, or a custom search with the criteria
Code
.ext is lrc

Thanks! Most of my songs have embedded synchronized lyrics so this won't work for that, I also tried this with songs that have .lrc files and the filter doesn't work (or I'm doing it wrong).

You didn't say your lyrics were embedded. Obviously my suggestion would only work with lyric files that are not embedded.

Are you setting up a filter, an auto-playlist, or doing a custom search? Please post a screenshot showing the settings you're using.

Unless someone else can offer a suggestion, I don't think you can accomplish what you want with embedded lyrics.

Thanks, that is what I wanted and it works when I add synced lyrics on musicbee.  It doesn't automatically update (the playlist) when I use another application to find synced lyrics until I edit and save the file again through musicbee, I don't know why though.

Edit: also works if the file already has synced lyrics before adding to musicbee
Edit: Just rescan whole library
