Playlist Editor only showing song lengths once played

When I add files into the Playlist Editor, it does not display the song lengths.

It only shows the length of a track once I play it.

I've only tested it with MP3s.

This only started happening the past few months or so; it was fine for many years.

Any ideas?

is a bug in the current releases (v5.64/5.65) as part of some playlist loading optimisations started in v5.64.

5.66 (next release with no eta at the moment) will fix it though if you change preferences -> titles -> read in background then that will allow it to work.

At the moment, I'm using "Read metadata when file(s) are loaded into Winamp".

If I keep this setting, will things be fixed in the next release?

This issue has occurred for at least a month or two now.

when the new version is released then it will fix the issue with that setting. if you're not using v5.65 (or v5.64) and it happens then other than updating to v5.65 and setting that option, there's not much else to be done (as the background option is the default value for loading file / playlists into the main playlist editor as of v5.64 on new installs).
