Subject: : FW: your server misidentifies 128k files as VBR!
===8<==============Original message text===============
We currently use MP3::Info (in cpan) to decide that type of mp3 it is. And
you are right, it is reading the mp3 wrong.
We are moving toward a program called mp3_check
Which indentifies it correctly. None the less we will fix it.
