I would like to display Karaoke lyrics over a live
webcam feed. This means I might need a skype (or equivalent) plugin that plays the music & lyrics, or
find some karaoke software with the ability to display lyrics over a transparent background. (That is, to have windowless karaoke display, and run the webcam feed behind it. )
All the software (I can find) to play .CDG
(karaoke lyric standard) files forces them to be played with an image background, or over a video file.

I would ideally like to able able to record the webcam feed AND the lyrics into one final video file, but I assume this can be done with a video capture program anyway.
The closest option I have found so far is this plugin
I can get a transparent background, but the plugin displays all lyrics simultaneously, not in a traditional karaoke fashion.
be a desirable option. Build a plugin for the purpose perhaps? Hack an existent
Some other karaoke software I have tried (unsuccessfully):
Thanks in advance!
