With the CDG Plug-in for Winamp you can turn your computer into a full-fledged karaoke machine. CDG files contain audio files that are accompanied with lyrics and require a specific codec or plug-in for proper playback with your media player. Install the CDG plug-in to begin viewing the lyrics of a song that are in sync with the audio track. Without the plug-in you can listen to the audio from the files but the lyrics will not appear on your screen.
