getID3 should currently detect, but not fully support, Ogg Theora video.

I only have 2 sample files and they don't show the behaviour you describe. If you have a small sample file, please post/email/PM me a link to it so I can see what's causing the problem.

I have added partial support for the current version of Ogg Theora.

Partial support means (for now) detection of format, video resolution and frame rate, but no audio data, no bitrate, no playtime.

I would really like 'playtime' to be available for ogv files, any news, any workarounds?

Patches against module.audio.ogg.php are welcome.

I've had a look but I'm really not sure I know enough about video & codecs & file formats to do that, but I appreciate being given the opportunity, thanks. I couldn't find whether the playtime field is the responsibility of Ogg or of Vorbis, and couldn't find a forum on the subject, perhaps if someone else can they might be able to plug Ogg people into the issue here and we might get a solution.
