playtime bug in getid3 ???

Post by getid3tester » Wed Mar 21, 2007 10:41 am

Hi,

i am using getid3 v2 with php 5.2.0 on a windows xp system and found out that i get the wrong playtime for movies (videos) using $ThisFileInfo['playtime_string']. I checked it with a mpeg file. The Mplayer showed me a nearly 1.5 seconds larger playtime than the Windows Media Player and the Quicktime player. Is it a bug in getID3 ?

Current "known issues" in getID3()
# MPEG audio+video streams may have inaccurate bitrate & playtime (usually within 0.1% but may be off by as much as 2%) - need better documentation
# Cannot determine bitrate for MPEG video with VBR video data (need documentation)

I realise the thread is almost five years old. However those issues are still issues because no easy solution exists.
