Audio Length column and flac files
« on: August 06, 2016, 14:29:20 »
It would be useful to have the 'Audio Length' column work for flac files.  The 'Length Total' column works OK, but is slow because of the recursive scanning.

There is a normal "Length" column too. is only show for the files.

The problem is that a use a free 3d party library for getting the metadata, and this lib do not support flac. I will not implement it my self. Way to much work.
(or it did not before. Have not checked if it been updated in a while.)

This might maybe work in v6.9
The 3rd party audio lib is updated. and it should support Flac.. but I have not tested it

Thanks for the update, Mathias.

The length of FLAC files now correctly displays :)
