Actually, trying a reindexing of my music folder is probably a good idea. This will probably take a while, so I'll update when that is done.

I don't think reindex is going to fix it.. I played that file directly from the filesystem , indexing does not do more than simply cache that data. I will check with mac backend and see what is going on.


EDIT: I just checked with mac backend (a macbookpro running OSX 10.9.3) and it works fine as well. I guess I should check after indexing and see if that has any change (shouldnt ). If you play the song directly form file system, do you still see that truncated time?

Definitely an odd behavior. Unfortunately none of the combo I have (mac 64bit or win7 64 bit) with iOS or Android show the 5:07. I dont transcode either so it is directly read by the app.

I am assuming you are on iOS7?

Yes. iOS7. I do have something with the iOS 8.0 seed on it (but I have not tried Tonido on that yet...) I'll see if I can dig that up...

Tested iOS 8.0b4 (not the new b5 seeded today) on an iPad -- that, too, shows me the 5:07 version of the song...

Is there any kind of debugging you want me to do? Is there some way to "reset" Tonido on my Mac so that it starts clean?

The problem is, that value is read directly from the actual player provided by the iOS!

The way we have it is, in the case of transcoding, the player will not be able to determine the duration and in that case we try to use the ID3 data if available (otherwise it will simply be 00:00).

But since there is no transcoding, the player itself will be able to determine the audio length and that is what is being shown. Do you have any other iDevice and see if this is something specific to the build on your iPhone ? Tonido literally doesn't just provides raw file data directly to the player.

I have 3 iOS devices -- an iPad Air (which is where I noticed this) and an iPhone 4S -- both running 7.1.2

I have an IPad 3 running 8.0b5 (now) for testing.

Granted, all 3 iOS devices are running off (basically) the same setup. I restored the build on the phone to the Air and the Air to the iPad 3 over time...

All three show the same specific file with the same incorrect 5:07 length (and playing the file makes truncates the file.)

I can try trashing Tonido from the iPad3 and reinstalling it if that matters. Does the app have "data" I'd need to try to uninstall prior to just removing the application?
