need software to make lyric videos

Postposted on Fri Oct 28, 2011 8:24 am

Sometimes when the kids are on youtube they play videos with songs that have the lyrics pop up on the screen as the song is being played (typically with a background picture). I have a project I intend to do soon which would benefit greatly from software that could do that. Anyone know what program(s) people use to make such videos?

Thanks!

Isn't that just the Youtube "captions" feature? The person who uploaded the video hand-filled out the text and timed it with the lyrics.

For anime stuff you have things like "hard subs" and "soft subs", I think the terminology is, wherein hard subs you get the video in something like Sony Vegas or iMovie or whatever and overlay text, then re-render the video out. So the words become part of the video. Soft subs are supported in VLC and maybe some other video playback programs, dunno, but it's a companion .sub file which my understanding is that it's just text with times and the video player overlays subtitles automatically from the info in the .sub file.

Hopefully that's useful info for ya.

Thanks for the advice, but maybe anyone could suggest some other solution? I'd like to know how to do this automatically, with no need of deep tech knowledge.

This does what you want:

Not sure if you can use it independently of the Shazam application....
