Description Valent Turkovic 2007-02-06 06:51:55 EST
Description of problem:

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Every time!

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Download or subscribe to lugradio podcast (mp3 version) 
2. Listen to it with amarok or transfer it to an ipod.
Actual results:
Play lenght is shown as 1/2 of the real lenght. In amarok that is not problem
except that when it comes to 0minutes (if you put play timer to count downward)
it still plays when as it should stop when countdown comes to 0.
If you play it on ipod when it comes to 0 it stops!

Expected results:
Mono audio file encoded with lame and taglib should play ok with amarok and on

Additional info:
The real bug is here:

Sorry for posting it to totem bug, but I don't see lame, taglib or amarok so I
can't post bug for them. Please make available new versions of taglib and lame
available for fedora.
Comment 1 Bastien Nocera 2007-02-06 06:54:59 EST
taglib and amarok are in the extras, and lame isn't shipped by Fedora.
There's also no mp3 decoding software in Fedora, so I'll push this to amarok.
Comment 2 Valent Turkovic 2007-12-29 14:40:03 EST
should this be put back to taglib as there are no extras anymore?

is there any chance of fixing this issue anytime soon? I filed this bug ages ago...
Comment 3 Valent Turkovic 2007-12-29 15:02:36 EST
ok, it seams fixed now :)
Fedora 8 has taglib 1.5 (they FINALY released it!!!) and this bug seams fixed now.
I tested it with one MP3 file that I had problems before and now it works ok...

This was a really slow and frustrating for me, but now it is finally fixed...
Comment 4 Valent Turkovic 2007-12-29 15:11:17 EST
Nope it is not fixed :( I used a fixed rate MP3 and now then I tested it with
variable rate mono file I still see this bug :(
Comment 5 Valent Turkovic 2008-01-14 10:55:10 EST
I got this feedback from Lukáš Lalinský and he said this:

TagLib 1.5 was not released, that's just Fedora's SVN shapshot version.
As far as I can see, the latest snapshot is from 2007-11-11, the bug
about MPEG2 streams was fixed on 2007-11-22.

So can you please update taglib to never SVN snapshot?
