I'm looking for an audio player (may be for gnome, kde, xfce, doesn't matter) in which I'd be able to load my own lyrics from a file. I have some language-learning podcasts and would like to have a transcript for them to automatically appear when the track changes.
I've been searching quite thoroughly and couldn't find any player that would load lyrics from a file, all of them search the web to find the lyrics (I've even tried the heavy amarok) and it obviously won't work for a podcast.
Thank you for you help!

EDIT: Ok, I've found a great player! Actually Enigmapond recommended it to me on ubuntuforums:
It's named Guayadeque and you can read about it's advantages I've immediately noticed in the thread I've posted.

Guayadeque Install guayadeque

With Guayadeque you can edit lyrics and save them after you have finished.

I would also recommend GNOME Mplayer for you. I'm using it and I've never had any problems with subtitles.
