File length time cut in half when uploaded
  • Hi,

    I'm using Airtime 2.5.1

    When I upload .mp3 files in airtime, some of the files are showing up with their length cut in half (or there about.) But if I check the metadata, the file shows as it's actual length.  The library is registering the song as it's lesser length and it's causing a problem when I program shows. 

    So for example FileA.mp3 is :60 but when it uploads it registers as :27. When I check the metadata it indicates that the file is :60, but the library is picking up the :27 and saying my 1 hour show is short.

    I've reloaded the files in question and sometimes they pull in at the right length and sometimes they don't. Sometime I need to reupload the files several times, but eventually, it will upload with it's proper length. 

    Any thoughts as to why this is happening?

    Search the forum for "silan" package bug. I think that's your problem.
