    The Now Playing screen of My Music does not display the duration of VBR MP3s with VBRI header correctly when using the internal dshow player.
    Using Bass Player the correct time is displayed. I do prefer the internal dshow player, so a fix of this bug would be really great.

    Example DShow Player:

    Example Bass Player with the correct duration for the mp3:

    The Tagreader was fixed to read the tags correctly, so only this display bug is left for VBRI MP3s.

    hehe, being the Dshow Player, i would also display this kind of music wrong :))))

    do you have this issue also with the files you sent me for fixing the Tagreader, or is it only for files with this length?

    Wow - that was a fast reply! :)
    It happens also with the mp3s I sent you. Maybe this bug isn't fixable because of the dshow player, but maybe simply the duration from the database could be displayed instead of the duration the dshow player reports - if this is the case.

    well yes, it is the DShow player. it simply dioesn't display correctly.

    beginning of the year we went away from showing the duration out of the database, because the players showed it more accurately.
    I'll see, what we can do.
