This is exactly what I have been looking for, I play my iTunes via my TV and it is nice to know what the track is and see the artwork.

I am having problems in that sometimes it is not updating to the new track!

iTunes 11.1.5
OSX 10.8.5

Any suggestions?

Brilliant! I've been using a 3-year-old version of Cover Version and today thought, "Man I'd like to find something that displays the lyrics too." Searched, found this, updated. And now I have lyrics too. Cover version thrills me a 2nd time, and it's free!

WooHoo! Latest fixes noticed and appreciated!
My fave just got improved and fixed (subtle fixes)
Scrolling lyrics have proper space breaks between paragraphs restored, and overlap problem with bottom title is even cleaner!
Thanks for making this available!

iTunes 11 seems to want to end the "war on artwork" begun by CD's, so I went looking for Alt solutions. I'm so thrilled to find "Cover Version". Love it, love it, love it. Your tag line should be "It's free because it's priceless". Thank you, Heiko.

Oops. A new version is needed again. 2.1.2 is causing iTunes 11.0.1 to crash.

Wow, good work Imagomat with v2.1 and scrolling lyrics! I am a giant fan of your plugin, it really is my favorite.

Observation, but not a real problem, just a cosmetic issue?
In versions prior to v2.1, you would auto-shrink the text to fit the available screen size, and your usage of scrolling now results in a bigger, and more consistently readable font in lyrics. That's a very nice improvement, thank you...

The cosmetic issue: Now the lyrics are overlayed and coverup the "Track" Title at the bottom of the screen. Only a problem in songs with very many lyrics (such as anything by Public Enemy" which has hundreds of words in their lyrics).. This is purely a cosmetic issue, so I am only posting in troubleshooting section, though my review would still definitely give you 5 stars for the newest version!

Mac OSX 10.8.2 & iTunes 10.7 ! Still Works!
What a nice venerable little plugin....
I still prefer the old school Vertigo effect, and whenever I activate this visualizer, it creates its own full screen space to run, and I guess I can get used to that, swiping between spaces as needed.
Remotes still control everything correctly in this mode...

No plugin from anyone can ever show lyrics from a Home Sharing library on local network, unfortunately, and that is an Apple limitation(?) that I wish I could overcome, as my gigantic library has lyrics embedded in every song.

Thank You for this!
