I'm DJ'ing at my friend's wedding and always work within Traktor Pro to mix songs but his bride wants to sings a song with the aid of lyrics onscreen. She's given me a video that plays the song while the lyrics show onscreen.

I'm on a Mac. Would appreciate your help very much; if you need me to elaborate, please ask.

This question came from our site for engineers, producers, editors, and enthusiasts spanning the fields of video, and media creation.

Do you have to mix into this video or can you stop Traktor while you bring the video up? – Warrior Bob Jan 4 '13 at 16:33

Thanks for your interest. The situation was a bit urgent so I just fiddled around and figured it out. You can't run it through Traktor but you can run it by itself (open in Quicktime / VLC) and then go into your sound settings and change the sound settings to whatever external soundcard you may be using to run through your system.
