Recently I have noticed a new trend in internet music. I dl a set from soulseek and when I go to play it in winamp the time is all over the place.

Example 1: An 80 min set/cd will read 400 min in winamp. Then the time will very quickly go to 70 min, then 45 min, then 67 min. It sounds fine in winamp but I can't transfer to cd cause my burner reads it as 400 min and therefore too big for the cd....

Example 2: A track or set will just plain count wrong. 5:45 5:44 5:45 5:46 5:43 and so on. It sounds fine in winamp but I think it will not perform right after it is burned because of this funky time thing.

Can anyone help? Is there anyway to fix these time inconsistencies?

has to do with the encoding... VBR sometimes does freaky things. I can't remember what program does it... but if you encode a track with VBR on and a high bitrate it would cause it to do that.... maybe wavelab?

Is VBR the way to go these days? Is that what everyone's doing or is it just Tribe cool?

People still use Winamp?
