KJAMS and PCDJ Karaoki are two good software for karaoke but they have a great limitation about the audio & video formats supported at the input. The only input file supported are MP3+CDG and some video format.
Kjams is available for Mac and PC; PCDJ is available only for PC Windows. Another “limitation” for both of programs is that they can be not so simple to use.
