I'm running Arch Linux, with everything up to date, and the latest quodlibet built from github.

All the songs in the album Panic by Caravan Palace have insanely long lengths. Rescanning and rebuilding and whatnot isn't changing the lengths. And I know that they are not actually that long because ncmpcpp and clementine recognize their true lengths and also, if I try to seek ahead to for example, 1 hour into a song, quodlibet will immediately skip to the next song.

Thank. This is https://quodlibet.readthedocs.io/en/latest/guide/faq.html?highlight=tlen#why-do-my-mp3-files-have-the-wrong-length

We have a "Fix MP3 duration" plugin, but I see that is broken for some reason.. :/

I think we should just remove TLEN support..

Is there any benefit to having TLEN support? Because if ncmpcpp and clementine recognized the true lengths of the songs, it would imply that they didn't care about the TLEN frame right?

I removed the "Length" tag in kid3 from all the songs in the album and now quodlibet is displaying the correct lengths.

I don't think so, no, I've removed it now. Might be that 10 years ago our MP3 parsing code wasn't that good and TLEN helped for the cases where it failed.
