Okay, so here's a weird one.

I have a song ("Love Stinks" by The J. Geils Band) that Jaikoz is reporting in the summary tab as being 11:59 long.

When I play it in VLC and when I view it in Windows Explorer (Details tab of "Properties") it shows only 3:26 song length.

The only issue is that when I go to force match it to a MusicBrainz album it tells me there's a big problem with the songs not matching.

Obviously I can just force it through anyway (and I will) but just thought I'd bring this weird anomaly to your attention.

Is this an mp3, some mp3s have issues that mean file length is not calculated correctly, so different approximation techniques have to be used and in this case seems like VLC's method is better than the one used by SongKong.
