Description:

This is only an idea for those people that know and likes a lot scripting with karamba...
Firstly sorry because of my english (i am spanish)
Secondly .. My idea is about a theme for karamba that works as the xmms plugin for lyrics of songs.
This theme could be a translucic square that loads the .txt texts... when a song is played

That's impossible. Sure, it's a fine idea, but it will never, I repeat, never see the light of day. Know why? Because the karamba theme would have to have some source to draw the lyrics from. mp3's don't contain the lyrics by default (in fact, that's wholly impossible). The only way to implement this system is to have a relational database which relates a BIGTEXT field to an mp3 in your local filesystem, and then use PHP to grab the text (lyrics) out of the BIGTEXT field. However, someone would have to import/type all the lyrics into this database. And, well, there's no way in hell that will ever happen. How many songs are there in the world? Billions? Trillions? All throughout history! C'mon, be realistic. Not to mention that, of course, the lyrics would have to somehow sync up with the song as it played through. Again, this is impossible, unless someone also codes in some type of other relationship in the database that shows what line of lyrics to print at one time in the song. I guess it's not wholly impossible . . . maybe you'll see it happen a few thousand years down the road.

For a programmer it's very simpel to make. You make a script that leefs the .mp3 a way and put.txt in the end. I think I can do it in php but it's mutch work.
