Incorrect File Length

Q: The length of the song that I have loaded is wrong (It's much longer than it should be)

When browsing and/or loading a song, you may sometimes find that the song length is displayed incorrectly (example: a 3 minute song appears to be 7 minutes long). This is usually because the file is a variable bitrate (VBR) file, so VirtualDJ will not be able to correctly determine its length until it has been loaded and analyzed in full.

When loading it to a deck, you will initially see the length displayed incorrectly, and then it will change to the correct length once the song is fully loaded (Entire deck waveform is shown). To avoid this, we strongly recommend that you pre-analyse your music collection to ensure that the correct BPM, gain, length, etc. is available for all your files.
