Opening LRC files

Did your computer fail to open a LRC file? We explain what LRC files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your LRC files.

What is a LRC file?

Files that contain the .lrc file extension are text files that are used by a variety of audio playback software applications. The LRC files contain the lyrics and timing information for the songs that are associated with the file.

LRC files are commonly used by karaoke software applications to display the text of the songs that are being played by a Karaoke application. In most cases, the LRC file will be named with the name of the song that is associated with it. For example, the LRC song for the file Candle in the Wind would be named with the file name candleinthewind.lrc.

Try a universal file viewer

In addition to the products listed above, I would suggest that you try a universal file viewer like Free File Viewer. It can open over 200 different types of files - and very likely yours too! Download Free File Viewer.
