The debugging information is only there to help you figure out why this isn't working between your different systems. It's not there for regular use. Once you find the problem, you should replace the installation with the version from the official components repository, which has no such debugging notices.
another question: will your "debug" version automaticly update if a newer version is available, or do i have to install the "official" version?

I could look into how to play a fake stereo mode, but until such time as I do, you can add a "Convert mono to stereo" DSP to your conversion chain, which will always promote mono streams without altering anything else.

For actual song lengths to be reported, you need to load a song length database.
This may be from a path relative to your foobar2000 portable directory, so it will be saved internally as a relative path. Currently, it supports storing paths at or inside of the component's directory (which will be wiped when you update it with foobar, unfortunately), the profile path, and the player path. I suggest storing the file in the portable directory, or a subdirectory underneath it. It will be resolved to an absolute path when it loads the database.
