I apologize if this is the wrong forum - couldn't find one more specific to my issue, since I recently got dbpoweramp primarily for its conversion features.

Something else I wanted to make use of - the tooltips with all the extra media info - is turning out to be pretty useless because so much of the time it's giving wrong size - and often length - of my camcorder videos. One video that was only 11 minutes long was listed in the dbpoweramp tooltip as 3 hours!

Why is this and is there a fix? My videos are regular mpeg files, my camcorder is JVC Everio 30GB.

Thanks in advance...!

I believe dMC is using the same methods it uses for audio to determine size, hence the wrong estimates. dMC really just designed for audio and may have unpredictible/wrong results when using the tooltip on videos.
