Description

I have a 192 kbit VBR Mp3 file and Mplayer shows it as 32 kbit. Here is the verbose output.

AFAIK it's not possible to detect the average bps reliably without reading the
whole file. Both mpg321 (which uses libmad) and current CVS MPlayer detect some
of my VBR mp3s as 128kbit. I wouldn't consider this a bug.

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

Closing for now. Maybe reopen later if someone provides a sensible patch.

comment:3 Changed 13 years ago by aaron@…

i see two distinct problems here. one is the incorrect bitrate reported, which
should be suppressed or replaced with an indication that the file is VBR; when
the file has been fully played, we could report the average bitrate.
two is the incorrect file length reported, which could be updated over time as
the average bitrate converges. these could both be addressed by a single patch,
which i have considered writing but not gotten to. any thoughts on the suggested
approaches? should i post the issue of the file length as a separate bug?
