Bug Description

On both the online "cloud" library and in queue all songs display a size of 0k beside the artist name. Specifically, the text reads "(0k mp3)".

This is currently occurring on a Motorola Droid (Android).

This happens because the file is not an mp3. Happened to me with some of my .m4a files. They do need a better message when it's not an mp3 though.

I converted my files to mp3 and now it still shows this error. When I play a song it will start but not have a finish time. The song just counts up. I can't move the bar to move to another spot in the song.

Our music scanner does not scan and store the bitrate of the music's encoding. This is a server-side problem, so I'll link this bug report to that project.

For the client, reporting "0k" is wrong, so I'm hiding the bitrate when we don't know it, instead of converting a null value to a numerical zero. For that, I call this problem fixed.

summary: - Songs all display a size of 0k
+ Songs all display a bitrate of 0k

And in this case, I'd be expecting "Okay!" and "Not okay!" ;-)
