    Hi there! I have noticed that if I play ogg files without transcoding, firefly does not send the correct length (duration) of the song (it shows a shorter value than in reality) to the client. If I select transcoding, everything’s fine.

    Does scan_type really work for ogg files?

    Cheers,

    Ignacio

    Not sure what this is. The duration is set in the ogg file — it doesn’t need to be frame scanned, as the ogg headers actually store song duration.

    Transcoding or not transcoding, though, it should show the same duration, so I’m kind of confused on that.

    alrighty, someone remind to try to have firefly chew those ‘huge’ ogg files once again, on win32 preferably. not on the slug 😉
