    There have been no bug reports for a couple of days now. Can I conclude from this that the last version works *so* well that it's entirely bug free :wink: ? Or have I bored all of you to death :roll: ?

    I'd like to wrap this up so I'd appreciate it if you could report any outstanding issues.

    Thanks -- Steve
    I have reported a couple of bugs earlier. These seem all to be have fixed.

    Hi,
    I still have problem with duration on certain files. It seems the bitrate is also wrong. A 320kbps files is reported as 32Kbps and duration is 19:48 instead of 3:16.

    Also the bitrate of m4a files is not reported, but that’s not outstanding :)

    Can you confirm that you're seeing this with version .28? Did .28 improve the duration problem? Can you email me a couple of the affected files?

    Also the bitrate of m4a files is not reported, but that’s not outstanding :)
    I'll look in this.

    Thanks -- Steve

    No, I don't think so, :wink: :lol:
    I sent you a mail with 10 files which produce some issues.

    Again, I don't think so, because this tag-reader is a real huge improvement and should be as bug-free as possible.

    Testing such new code in form of a standalone app is realy nice. Testing is more efficient, faster and exacter.

    steve - how robust do you want the tag reader to be? reason i'm asking is that i have a couple of files i ripped using eac to flac. when i load them in foobar, foobar can display the tags correctly - but if i try to change them foobar reports and error, then if i change them again it works. the tag reader is currently reporting an error on these files until i've changed the tags twice in foobar.

    soooo, there must be something corrupt in the tag structure on these files. it's not a big deal for me to fix them, but the thing is foobar can read them ok even with the corrupt tags. i'm not sure how forgiving you want the tag reader to be on badly written tags...

    (again - just to emphasize - i'm not really fussed about this because it's very easy to fix the tags!)

    Missing synchronized lyrics

    SteveV said:
    Version 0.27 has been released (see first post for link)

    Changes:

    Fix: lyrics text prefixed with non-text characters
    Fix: lyrics text not being decoded properly in some cases
    Fix: lyrics do not include line breaks
    Fix: ID3V2.4 frame size not being read correctly when size is greater than 255

    TODO: Duration not being calculated correctly on some VBR MP3's
    - 0.28 works fine, tested with 2.500 mp3 files
    - id3 tags o.k.
    - cover jpg o.k.

    BUT:
    - Lyrics=Y but in the header fields it shows lyrics content as unreadable chars!?
    - My lyrics are in the same folder as mp3 as .txt file and also inside mp3 as id3-tag
    - Also I have synchronized lyrics as file in the folder
    - WMP and WinAmp shows everything rigth

    - What I completly miss are synchronized lyrics (.lrc)
    - Dreaming of lyrics which scroll the screen while playing - see MiniLyrcis (http://www.crintsoft.com/index.htm)

    can i upload samples?
