#779 bit rate info of audio may be incorrect


the info of audio i seen i your software may be incorrect.. i attach 3 image files.
first one show info of mp3 audio from mediaInfo.
second show info of same mp3 file from mp3 tag software.
third one show info of same file according to windows.

in these three file the value of bit rate is correct but unit (kpbs) is different.
MediaInfo shows Kbps (capital k)
while the other two shows kbps (small k)

actually i don't know what unit is correct but it may be bug.

    International System of Units
    The exact letter is lowercase "k" for kilobits per second (file size is correct because they use binary prefix "Ki")

    On the ToDo-list

    got it........
    it doesn't matter that the letter k is either uppercase or lowercase
    it always means kilo either 1000 or 1024
    the main thing is letter b
    small b = bit
    where capital B = byte

    I don't see any issue with bit/bytes (everybody has "b" or "Bit" for bitrates)
