No

I have a working setup of plugin v1.1 and WMP 11 beta 2
(v 11.0.5705.5043) on Win XP pro with SP2 and .NET 2.0
(without .NET 1.x)

OGG, MPC bitrates, and song lengths are not reported
properly (both in playlist window and using right-click
-> properties). When adding files to the library,
bitrates are always reported as 0kbps. Song lengths are
not present.

However, when dragging and dropping a file from
explorer into wmp, song lengths are reported *on play*,
and bitrates correctly reported upon viewing the file
properties. This happens irrespective of whether that
file is already in the library or not.

Tags are otherwise loaded and displayed normally, as
expected.

    Bitrate and song length are not handled by WMPTSE.
    These information are only available by the directshow codec
    (hence the playing condition).
    It would be a dramatic performance slowdown to ask the DS
    codec for these information with WMPTSE events.
    As for inserting the "on playing" datas, i've tried, but
    Length and Bitrate are read only metadata for WMP plug-ins.

    Sorry so.
