Description

Play the attached mp3 file and watch it. The endurance of the song is calculated wrong and the seeking slider doesn't reach it's end. Instead of 1:19 the song should only be 37 seconds long. I also tested with VLC and here it works fine.

Hi, thanks for letting us know, but we are aware of this issue already. The MP3 format makes it difficult to accurately compute the length without decoding the whole file. You can refer to the list of common problems here1 for how to change the setting to decode the file completely and display the correct length. Doing so will slow down Audacious; that is why the setting is not enabled by default.

What about making this option the default? The current default behavior is quite confusing and not always correct. Users which prefer speed over correctnes should then check the box in the plugin settings.
