Title: FB 1.4.1 Beta 6: bitrate for non-MP3 streams does not appear in Properties
Post by: sveakul on 2018-11-08 03:23:09
While the issue with ogg-wrapped radio stream properties (Opus, FLAC) not showing up in the Status bar has been fixed, I've noticed that the bitrate value never shows up in the stream Properties details.  As a matter of fact it affects AAC streams as well--only MP3 streams are immune.  The rest of the details show up--sample rate, codec, channels--but not the bitrate, although that is correctly displayed in the Status bar while playing.  Files are not affected.  This persists after using "Reload info."

Perhaps it would be better for OGG/FLAC/AAC/Opus/Vorbis streams to display "variable (var)" instead of the missing value of bitrate.

It would be nice to see a median or other approximation of the variable rate there, as is the case with other players (AIMP, XMPlay, etc).  If the core does not allow that, "var" as Sergey77 suggests.
