User guide

Explorer mode

You can explore the entire Memory Stick in search of any sound file to play.

Player mode

A feature which you can use to see the song information including the cover. It is only able to search within the homebrew explorer. During playback you can pause, stop and continue the song.

Karaoke mode

In order for it to show the lyrics of the song, you must have the lyrics in a .txt file using same name as the song, for instance,

Happy Birthday.mp3
Happy Birthday.txt

The song (MP3) and lyrics (TXT) can both be placed in the MUSIC folder. By default it will read lyrics and songs from the same directory, you can configurate the setting by editing conf.mkp if you want to keep the lyrics in a different folder.

To play the song and see the lyrics, enter the application and choose that song from Explorer Mode.

Developer advised that the lyrics of the song should not contain any blank lines.

Language and Lyrics configuration

Open the file conf.mkp located in the PSPlaylist folder,

Languaje = 1
txtdir = ""

You can change the language settings by editing the number.

Languaje = 1 is for Spanish.
Languaje = 2 is for English.
Languaje = 3 is for French.
Languaje = 4 is for Italian.

The next item is to assign where it reads the lyrics files from.

txtdir = "" means PSPlaylist will read lyrics from the same directory as the songs.
txtdir = "/Your/Directory/" means PSPlaylist will read all the lyrics from a specific directory.

The directory structure must start and end with "/". The first one mean the Memory Stick's root. If you want lyrics to be read from "MS_ROOT:/PSPlaylist Songs", write txtdir = "/PSPlaylist Songs/". Else, lyrics will not be read.

Also all the lyrics will have to be in the same directory.
