Sometimes when I convert from another lossy format such as MP3 to ogg, the resulting track length is different. For example, I converted a 256 kbps CBR MP3 with a duration of 1h 59m 47s to q2 OGG using aoTuV [20110424]. The resulting ogg file has a duration of 1h 59m 39s. Where did the 8 seconds disappear?

I realize it is not a huge difference. I was just curious what causes such things to happen?

Thanks!

How did you convert your files? "Losing" 8 seconds sounds like a serious bug in the converter.

OK, I think it's a problem with Foobar itself. Foobar is reporting that the source MP3 file's duration is 1h 59m 47s, but when I actually play that track, the track stops playing at 1h 59m 39s. Windows 7 is also reporting that the track length is only 1h 59m 39s. Not quite sure why Foobar is misreporting the length of the MP3...
