Videos duration wildly inaccurate

I’ve just noticed the duration overlay on the vast majority of my videos are all wildly inaccurate. For example, the first video in the screenshot is a little over 2 minutes, and the second one is less than 1 minute. This seems to be true regardless of file types (mp2, mpg4, avi, quicktime, asf)


I think I may have figured it out. The incorrect duration comes from an associated xmp file. After deleting the xmp file, photostructure info shows the right duration. So now I gotta figure out why DigiKam created a xmp with the widely inaccurate timestamp!

Ah: i can’t imagine duration ever being correct in a sidecar. I already slide a bunch of tags, I’ll add that now.

Update: this will be in the next v2.0 build.

Thanks for the report and follow-up!
