Is it possible to override (manually set) the duration of a track by editing the m3u playlist? I tried the following as a test:

#EXTINF:10,Blackhole
F:\FLAC\Beck\Mellow Gold\12-Blackhole.flac

Where 10, = 10 seconds
I had assumed the track would play for 10 seconds... unfortunately
Slimserver either ignored the tag, or I am misunderstanding how this tag is interpreted.

Any help appreciated. My goal here is to set a manual track duration (essentially an end-time). Ideally, I'd also like to be able to set the start time as well. Rumor has it that this can be done with a cue sheet... If so, how would I go about writing the tag?.

Thanks!
