This actualy is not a bug, but an error caused by different programs using various methods to calculate the lenght of a "streaming" mpeg file.

Another causes of this are improper video encoding and peer-to-peer files being incorectly downloaded/errors in download process.

For example, if you use Elecard MPEG2 package, in demultiplexer you must enable "Using bitrate" in "seeking method" and the time will be correctly displayed.

"Using bitrate" will assume that the the average bitrate is written in the first frames. Most of the time this field contains 9800 – max bitrate possible. Seeking by Presentation Time Stamp should give better results. If using a proper decoder you still cannot get proper length estimation, the only solution is to fix your MPEG files by remuxing them with correct timestamps. Care must be taken so that sync between audio and video streams is not lost.
