#2831 closed patch (fixed)

MythMusic 0.20 fails to write VBR header to VBR MP3 files (with patch)

There is a bug in the way that mythmusic encodes MP3 files. It fails to add the VBR header/tag/info when encoding in VBR mode. This causes mythmusic (and most all other MP3 players) to calculate the wrong play length of the file.

Attached is a simple patch that fixes this bug. The patch causes mythmusic to write out the proper VBR header/tag/info to the encoded MP3 file. This allows MP3 players to quickly know the correct play length of the file.

Can someone please fold this into the mainline? The diff was taken against 0.20a. It is *extremely* simple (one changed line and two new lines).

MythMusic was failing to write out the proper VBR header causing most players to report incorrect play lengths for all files ripped by MythMusic to VBR mp3 format. Seems to fix the problem with all the players I tried.
