    mp3 playback cut off at the end

    I did a brief search but could not find anything about this.
    All my tracks are flac normally. But I bought a view mp3 tracks. Upon play back I realized that they are cut off a view seconds before the actuall end.

    ArchLinux/LMS 7.9.1 here.

    Is this a know problem? The converter the culprit?

    Do they playback properly in another player, say VLC?

    Yes! Not sure why this happened but these tracks were created in 2006 and being on random album play almost constantly I must have heard that before.
    Has this something to do with the 64bit decoders on linux?

    Same with mp4. Tried an extra EAC run.

    This is a complete guess, but are the MP3 files VBR encoded? If so, that may be the source of the problem, especially if the duration is being reported incorrectly, too.

    You might want to try using mp3val (it's in the Arch repository) to correct the VBR headers.

    You should first check if transcoding even occurs. If it does, try without.

    As well as checking for transcoding (there should be no need to transcode mp3 but mp4 will be transcoded for older SB players) - does it happen with single player or with synced players ?
