4. Plot your favorites music and videos to your editing software. Every video editing software is capable of making vide karaoke. PowerDirector, Premiere, Pinnacle, Sony Vegas and others. There are also other software specific on this purpose like AV Video Karaoke Maker, Video Karaoke Studio 2, Karaoke Video Creator and Karaoke Builder Studio. Of all of these my favorite is Sony Vegas Pro 10. It's very easy to use.

5. Plot the lyrics.

6. Synchronize the lyrics to every words of the song. Each editing software has a different way to synchronize the lyrics. Synchronization means that once a certain word in sang, its equivalent words in lyrics is highlighted also.

7. For Vcd output render the file as mpeg1 format. For DVD output, render the file as mpeg2 format.

For creating karaoke video easily, you can find a step by step procedure here.
