Mpeg playtime_string problem

Post by crippe » Fri Mar 03, 2006 9:27 am

For some reason GetID3 is getting the wrong playtime_string information from my mpg video files? Works fine with quicktime and wmv files but not mpg. Can anybody tell me if I am doing something wrong or is this a known bug.

Best regards

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)
