Not determined .flac duration

Hello!. Use your library to determine the duration of .flac files. Fail What I had not opened, it shows the duration = 0. On the other formats do not have problems. What could be the reason?

for example, I do so
IAudioDataReader theReader = ATL.AudioReaders.AudioReaderFactory.GetInstance().GetDataReader(@"C:\music\1.flac");


labelDuration.Text += theReader.Duration.ToString();

Hello Tideus,

First of all, sorry for the late reply.

The code you posted looks correct. It might be that the FLAC file you're using has a specific format/encoding unknown to the library.

=> There are 2 ways to solve this

1/ Run the library in debug mode, take a look at the output and send me the log/exception messages on this thread

2/ PM me a link to your FLAC file (via any online sharing platform, e.g. MEGA) and I'll get back to you quickly

Looking forward to hearing from you,

Hello Tideus,

Latest update (fd023c757859) might solve your issue. FLAC reader was a tad extreme when dealing with unknown tag IDs, marking the whole file as invalid. It has now been fixed.

Please update your code from the master branch and let me know.
