Just in case any enterprising souls out there feel up to the challenge
of determining play time and bitrate average for Ogg Vorbis files via
PHP, I send along this message from the programmer of the NetJuke

This is to let you know that James, the developer of the getid3 library,
is on a coding spree right now (3 versions in 3 days). So I'm going to
wait until sunday to release b12.2, because any improvement he can bring
is crucial to speeding up b12.
On a side note re: getid3: Here is an open invitation to anyone actually
able to come up with some php code to calculate the play time and
average bitrate of an ogg file. This would definitely help the netjuke
and James out, as this is something the getid3 lib cannot d at this
time. We've both looked into the source of the ogginfo tool, but we
can't seem to make much sense out of it, to be fairly honest. Any CODE
insight will be more than welcome. :o)
The other thing slowing b12 down, versus b11, is the switch to text
columns, instead of varchar, for the location field of the track
records. This was required to allow paths of virtually any length, but
has the sad downside of slowing down the queries.
At this level, I'm working on optimizing the SQL for b13 (the next
release which will require running the installer, versus the b12.x
Hoping the people with problems can still live with b12.1 in the
meantime. We're not forgetting you guys. ;o)
Cheers, and have fun.
