How can I show the lyrics of songs?
After you get an ALC lyrics file, you have two
ways to make Visual MP3's lyrics playing engine run.
1: Write the ALC file into mp3 files and Visual MP3 can then
recognize the edited mp3 files automatically. It will not make the
mp3 files unplayable by other mp3 players.
2: You can specify the ALC file for MP3 record. You just need to
select the to-be-specified mp3 record. Click the Edit button on
the toolbar and choose the ALC file in the popup dialog box.
How can I get ALC lyrics?
You can use our supplied tool Active Lyric Seeker
to seek it online and download it. Alternatively you can use
Active Lyric Maker to create or edit lyrics.

What is the difference between ID3 V1 Tag and
ID3 V2 Tag?
ID3 V1 Tag is the 128-byte ending information of
mp3 file which includes Title, Artist, Album, Comment, Genre, Year
and Track Number while ID3 V2 Tag is the head of mp3 file which
can contain more information.
Why can't Visual ID3 clear out some files' ID3
It is because these files aren't according to the
industry standard for they may have been edited by some outdated
software. More and more software are according to the ID3 V2
industry standard now.
I expected the software to automatically pick up
all the id info (e.g. album name, track title etc) but it doesn't
seem to do this. What should I do? Am I right to expect this or do
I have to type the title of each track?
Visual MP3 has a lot of ways to get ID3 v1/v2
tags automatically. (Such as MP3 Files Scan Wizard and New/Edit
Dialog) But some MP3 files do not have both ID3 v1 and ID3 v2
tags, or they do not use an industry standard of ID3 tag. Why
can't Visual Ripper rip any track?
Please try the following steps:
1. Try resetting all values to their defaults in the Options
2. Try changing jitter correction values in the Options dialog.
3. Try using the "Auto-detect" read algorithm in the Options
It seems to rip very slowly, why?
Try checking the "On Error" jitter correction in
the "Options" page. This mode is faster than the "Always" setting,
and should produce results comparable to "Always".
Is ID3 information not available on the CD so
you can just copy it during ripping?
No. The CD tracks only contain sound information.
You can put ID3 tag before rip tracks.
Why does the album field only allow about 12
Visual Ripper will put ID3 v1 Tags to MP3 files
when ripping. The ID3 v1 Tag has the length limit of 128
characters. If you want to use unlimited ID3 Tag, please using ID3
v2 Tag editor (In Visual MP3's Tools menu).
