TuneWiki for Windows Media Player Video Transcript
>>[background music] Windows media player, it may not be the most exciting player out there but a little add on called TuneWiki makes it much richer. I'm Jessica Delacourt. We're looking at the first version of TuneWiki for Windows Media Player. The programs purpose is two-fold. First it can show you lyrics for a song that a TuneWikki community member may have added to the company's online database. Second it includes a social networking aspect and can show you on a music map who else in the world is playing the same song or music video that you are. You can play songs stored on your computer and if TuneWiki has the lyrics it will stream them. If you've got a language pack installed it will even translate them to your chosen language. It's pretty accurate. If the lyrics seem mistimed you're able to resync them by clicking the mouse to advance to the next line while you listen to the entire song. The next time the song plays the lyrics should follow your timing. If you glance away from the screen and miss a lyric, you can revisit it by pressing the scroll lyrics button. If the lyrics are just plain wrong only folks who have been granted editor status on TuneWiki are allowed to change it. But you can request that status in TuneWiki's online form or support page. In addition to displaying lyrics for our own songs, you can also view lyrics that have been made available for YouTube videos. You can't resize the video though and if it freezes we haven't quite found a way to refresh other than closing and reopening the player. If you click on Music Maps you'll be able to see which songs people around you are listening to. It's plotted on a searchable Google map and you can also zoom in. You can click the video button on a TuneWiki users name to start watching the video that they're watching. To get even more social the blip icon let's you post to Facebook and to Twitter. We found a few flaws with performance. On the whole however TuneWiki's combination of lyrics and mapping makes it a really useful and interesting plug-in. We would definitely recommend it. [background music] TuneWiki's Windows Media player add on is free and available from download.com. I'm Jessica Delacourt, thanks for watching.
