time / size mapping is incorrect for Audio CD

Bug #159937 reported by k3nt-1 on 2007-11-04
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
brasero (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: brasero

I created a compilation of mp3 files to be burned as an audio CD.
My blank audio CD is an 80min/700MB media
My compilation is made of songs for a total of about 1h15min24sec (75 minutes) and Brasero refuses to burn, arguing that there is not enough space on the inserted media and that it needs at least 759MB of free space !

I finally managed to burn a CD by removing songs until I reached 1h7min49sec

If you need debug files or log files or something else, just let me know.

Sorry, forgot to add some information :
I'm using xubuntu Gutsy and Brasero 0.6.1

Same configuration same problem!

Xubuntu Gutsy, brasero 0.6.1-0ubuntu1

I can't burn my list of FLAC files (note: I've installed gstreamer0.10-plugins-good).

After adding my files I can read : 1h13min50 / 1h20 in TOSHIBA DVD-ROM... (so, my 700 MB empty CD is welle recognized).
In the statebar (the bottombar... i don't say the good english word), you can read "25 selectioned files (1h13min44)".
I push on "Graver" ("Burn" if you prefer ;-) )
With defaults options : (no multisession, maximum speed, without copying image on HDD, with burnproof, ejecting after burn, no simulation)
A window appear with "Gravure du CD - Gravure d'un CD audio : recherche de la taille". Something as "Burning the audio CD: looking for the size."
Cd is ejected and i get this notice: "Attente de remplacement du disque - La capacité du disque dans le lecteur « TOSHIBA DVD-ROM SD-R2312 » n'est pas suffisante : remplacez le disque par un CD enregistrable avec au moins 744 Mio d'espace libre."
Something like "There's not enough capacity on your fuckµ*@ cd -rom. Put a CD-R with at less 744MiB of empty space." ;-)
And then, it comes back to the project dialog.

Reproduction and alternatives:
Same results with option
simulation on
simulation on ; copying image on HDD
copying image on HDD

Second test : reducing the number of files to burn, and so, the targeted size
Endly, simulating, it burns a list of 1h09min08s but refuses a list of 1h09min50s.
And, that's interesting : burning the list which has duration of 1h09min08s, it swows, during the process, a targeted capacity of 696 MiB.
And an audio CD of 74 min needs 650 MiB of empty space.

There's really a problem in calculating targeted space.

If you've got a solution...................

Noticed the same problem on Gutsy with mostly OGG files and one or two MP3's in the mix. As mentioned, I had to remove one or two files so it would finally accept to burn even though I hadn't reached 80 minutes. I even converted all the files to WAV at one time and I still got the same problem of bad size calculation.

Any chance to get it backported in gutsy ?
I did compile the 0.7 version manually and everything is working smoothly, so I guess packaging it would be possible.
