Inconsistent Duration (audio player only)

We recently upgraded to JWPlayer 7 for both video and audio files. After upgrading, we discovered an issue with the audio player duration. The total duration time displayed randomly changes during playback. The video player doesn't have this problem. Is there a way to get the duration to display properly/consistently?

Hi there,

I have spoken with our Engineers regarding this and they have advised me that it is not uncommon to see this behavior in certain streams in JW Player 7 as we are constantly checking the duration of the stream and updating the duration shown on the control bar accordingly and there are often streams which duration’s change segment to segment.

Please let me know if you need any more help or have any other questions.

Thank you!
