Repair MP3 files that have incorrect VBR information


Productivity/Multimedia/Sound/Editors and Convertors

Many MP3 decoders estimate the time length of an MP3 file based on the filesize divided by the first data packet's bitrate. As songs may start with silence and hence a low bitrate packet, this length prediction can produce quite nonsensical values, and when jumping through a VBR file, 50% through the file is usually not 50% through the song.

vbrfix places a VBR null frame at the beginning of the file to tell the MP3 player information about the song length and indexing through the song.

vbrfix can also fix other problems with MP3s, as all non-MP3 content is deleted (you can keep tags that you state, though). It can also help when merging two VBR MP3s together with a merging tool and then needing a newly-calculated VBR null frame.
