Hi Thomas, I agree that I provided insufficient evidence, and too many issues mixed together. Please see my reply at the bottom.

I'm not sure how to reproduce the following behaviour: Sometimes Clementine does not play the whole song; it plays part of the song and then skips to the next one. A long time ago I checked to see if the file was truncated by playing it in mplayer or mpv, and it seemed to be fine. I had always assumed that I had bad tags/headers, or that it was minor bitrot, and I used to work around the issue by reripping the CD into FLAC. Unfortunately I was cooking in the kitchen the one time I heard it happen since I filed this bug. Who should I ask about methods to trigger this skipped content behaviour? I'm guessing it will require a known-bad test file to reproduce, and I wonder if the maintainer of libtag1v5 could provide one. L114-15 of the clementine changelog is why I thought a newer libtag might do the trick: * Fix issues with some songs length thanks to Taglib. People with Taglib installed on their system will have to wait a new release of Taglib. Kind regards, Nicholas
