Attach a YouTube video to lyrics

In version 2.13 of Setlist Helper and SongBook for Android the ability to attach YouTube videos was added. In addition, support for www.maxilyrics.com was added. This is significant because all the lyrics on maxilyrics.com contain a related YouTube video. The easiest way to attach a YouTube video is to search for lyrics with maxilyrics.
