Song progressbar 100% when playing mp3's

When playing mp3's in mythmusic, the song progress bar is at 100% all of the time. Progress bar while playing a CD is correct.

The reason for this bug is simple: mythmusic pulls song-length from meta-data. I don't scan for meta-data when indexing (takes too much time) so I don't have song-length (length = 0 for all songs) while playing.

A straightforward fix would be to use taglib or anything that can discover songlength at playtime instead of using meta-data. A workaround is already implemented for CD playback(?), so should not be too difficult I guess.

Feature request without a patch. If your collection is large enough to require a long time to scan then the metadata is valuable to collect at scanning time.

With all due respect I disagree this is a feature request. Disabling ID3-tag scanning is a valid option, I don't see (in a logical sense) why that should break the progress bar.

You mentioned that your solution would not be too difficult, why not submit a patch and then everyone will get what they want?

I will do my best and try, but my C++/Qt knowledge is rusty/non-existing :(
