Windows 7: MP3 tracks playing beyond the seek bar

MP3 tracks playing beyond the seek bar

I have a problem with an album that was sent to me by a friend. It is an album of mine that I sent to him to be mixed and mastered. I'm encountering a problem though, a lot of the time when I play the track, the seek bar doesn't truly represent the length of the track. Sometimes if I click to the end of the track, where it should finish, it is only about 2 minutes into the track but it could say as much as 8 minutes on the seek bar and it just carries on playing the track even though the seek bar is right at the end.

Hi there
try re-tagging the music with mp3tag or re-rip the file. Also what program did you use to rip and tag the album in the first place. I don't thing this is a Windows problem per se but one of Audio editing.

Cheers

I have tried retagging in mp3tag but its limited to just artists name, artwork etc. The thing that makes me think its a windows problem is it playes perfect on my phone.

Have you tried using MP3val on it?
Quote:
MP3val is a small, high-speed tool for MPEG audio files validation and (optionally) fixing problems. It was primarily designed for verification of MPEG 1 Layer III (MP3) files, but supports also other MPEG versions and layers. It can be useful for finding corrupted files (e.g. incompletely downloaded).

Laugh Tracks
I've come across a couple of movies lately, "Men In Black 3" and "The Avengers" that has weird laugh tracks, which seem to simulate laugh tracks like was used in a lot of comedy series on TV. Not only do they seem inappropriate to the scenes, but are very distracting. Does Hollywood now believe...

I would like to put all my single tracks (where there is no whole album) into one album in Windows Media Library.

I'm looking for a background I had originally but have now lost. It was a photo of a few yachts at anchor in still water by land, taken from low down on the water's surface. One yacht's mast had a seagull on top if I recall correctly. I have an idea it came from MS or perhaps was part of one...

WMP12 FLAC Seek bug.
Hi, I have several FLAC files in my Media Library, and so far I have no problems playing them. The only thing that bugs me is that I can't seek! If I try to seek, it starts the song from the beginning. Here's a shot: http://store.picbg.net/pubpic/5B/EE/c7c62432b09c5bee.jpg Also when I look up...
