Hi Felix,

Thanks for posting. Hmm, let's see - a playlist with 300 tracks in it is pretty big indeed, but let's see - any chance you can send over the exact track titles and URLs of the track where this is happening? This way we can take a look from here and see what's up with that.

Looking forward to hearing from you.
Cheers,
Mathis
Thanks for the reply but I can't send u the URLs without a laptop and internet connection I'm on my phone writing this since I posted the problem I was 2 weeks on holiday and I still have 3 weeks to go so if I find a laptop with Internet access I will send the URLs.

Hi Felix,

Alright then, let's try a different approach here. You mentioned the track is in one of your playlists - can you send me the title of your playlist and the artist and title of the track(s) in question?
Hi, same problem here. The songs' lengths presented on the like-list are correct, but some of them are cut in half when played, eg "DJ Snake & Aluna George - You know you like it" (official DJ Snake channel). That's pretty annoying, because it seems to happen to more and more songs without any reason.
See here: original length of 4:12.

Same for me with the Bill Burr Monday morning podcast. Shows as 1 hr+ but only plays just over 3 minutes every time, despite several reinstalls. Works perfectly on the website.

This was easier for me to make these and u can see the time difference

I'm having the same issue as well, it only happens on my android phone.

Same here on my Nexus 4. v 5.1.1
Same here on Galaxy S5 running lollipop
This is also happening to the song "kasum - third eye blind - semi-charmed life (kasum remix) "
