[TAG] Asterisk in Time Column

Hey all,

First of all, if there is a God, thank him for this beautiful piece of software. Finally I have found a program that can manage huge amounts of mp3's. 

I'm pretty new with this program and I can't find a logical answer for the following matter.

Can someone tell me what the little Asteriks means in the Time column?

Thanks in advance!

I have no idea what formatting that is, but it seems that the asterisk is on songs that have variable bitrate (VBR)... This is just an uneducated guess tho...

select one of the songs in question, right click, select "FIX MP3 HEADER", put a check in the rebuild stream and click ok

see if that makes the asterix go away

this is only a guess though

@ A Man Eating Duck
Headerfix didn't work out, the asterisks are still there.

@Dotnoir: That's a negative as well. I'm also havin this problem with normal 192Kbit files.


Thanks for the hints though.

Paste the content of the "Time" Column here, maybe it says something about the meaning of that asteriks.

Ok, here is the code for the "Time" column:

Code: [Select]
$ifgreater(%_idx%,0,%_tim%|%_stim%*,)$tab(1)

$if($stricmp(%_rgn%,1),$if($and(%__replaygain_track_gain%,%__replaygain_album_gain%),%_atg%|%_satg%,$if(%__replaygain_track_gain%,%_tg%|%_stg%,%_sys%|%_ssys%)),%_tim%|%_stim%)

$if(%_length%,%_length%,$if(%_time_elapsed%,%_time_elapsed%,))

Replaygain you ask

if you select the files with the asteriks, right click and select REPLAYGAIN and then SCAN PER-FILE TRACK GAIN, and let foobar do it's thing.

The code you pasted depends on a variable in the global section named "idx". See if you can find the code that says:
Code: [Select]
idx= blah blah something
and paste it here.

Btw: IMHO, Replaygain is one of foobar's best features.

The idx thing:
Code: [Select]
idx=$add($strstr($upper($if2(%title%,)),$upper($get(index))),





I tried the Replaygain on a mp3 dir with different levels inside. It caused all tracks to be changed to the softest output level. 

Thanks though for helping me so far

I have found it           


Code: [Select]
// Index: If a track has any Info match with words you typed
//             (e.g. Live, OST, 2004...Blank means Index OFF), displays * at Time Column




Thanks for your help all.

ReplayGain is especially nice if you have music with greatly varying levels (like both classical and pop), if you use ReplayGain all music will be played at approximately the same level (so you don't need to turn the volume up or down all the time). It does this by amplifying quiet music and making loud music less loud.
