Nope, I don't think it is stored in the mp3. The Id3Lib API does not have a method or property for it and that is a sure sign. I can calculate it if it's a CBR recording but if it's VBR then I guess you have to play the file before you know the length. This why I really only want CBR recordings. The calculation is easy enough in C but I would not quite know how to script it. BTW schmontz, you'll have to teach me the basics od RSS feeds as I don't really understand what it is you have been doing. It would be nice if people can subscribe to the new recordings list.
