QuickTime Player for QT 6.2 crashes if asked to play
.ogg files over a network. In the debugger, I can see
that QT reports that the files have a track and media
duration of 0. Some files will open, but then only 1
second will be played.

    Please run ogginfo on these files. The behavior that you describe sounds
    like they are truncated. Did you try copying the file locally and opening
    it to determine if the problem is intrinsic to the file, or the fact that it is
    being opened remotely?

    I am not the original poster, but I have had similar problems. I am
    currently using a FreeBSD server and sharing, using samba, with my OS
    X 10.3.3 box with QT65 and the latest d7 of the ogg vorbis component.
    Some songs work in iTunes, and some show "Not Available" in the Time
    column. The ones that show "Not Available" will not play. The ones that
    show "Not Available" in iTunes show a 0 length in the Finder and won't
    play. The ones that work in iTunes work in the Finder. All were ripped
    on the FreeBSD box using the same sw. Below is the ogginfo on twi
    different tracks. The first one from Amy Grant does NOT work, the
    second one from Van Halen does work.
    (last year with an older version of the component I could not get any
    tracks to work over appletalk mounts with the FreeBSD box using
    netatalk, though nfs mounted mounts would sometimes work -- now I am
    using samba instead).

    Here is the ogginfo for the ones that don't work (first) and do work
    (second):

    one more note:

    Both the files shown (and all the troublesome ones) play in Whamb on
    OS X and also in all the Windows players I have tried... Just not using
    this component

    Thanks for the data. It may be the empty date tag that is causing this
    problem. I'll look into it.

    I added an empty date tag to small vorbis file with vorbiscomment. I
    was able to import the file without problem. Can you email me (use my
    sourceforge email address) one of you files that doesn't load? I'll look
    into it.
