I have quite large mp3 collection (which contains a lot of songs ripped by various people) and noticed that some of them (not too many but still...) contains _a lot_ of silence in the end on mp3 (play length could be something like 10 minutes when actual song is about 3 minutes). I would love to see small app which detects this silence and lists files which contains xx seconds of _extra_ silence at the end of mp3 file. No need to have actual functionality to remove that silence away, just detect it and list those files after scanning to user in some nice way.

(this max length of silence which is okay, should be also configured somehow).

This utility might come handy when you have >1000 files in multiple directories and would like to easily find those which needs some manual post-processing to remove extra length from them.

Hope this explanation of "problem" makes some sense..:)

EDIT: Found my Subject to be bit confusing, fixed now.

I'm not sure, but I think you may find some freeware that does this already:
e.g., mp3DirectCut, MP3RepairTool.

Those does that filescanning (detecting those unwanted silences) too? Well, let's have a look and then we'll see, if there is any need for my idea..smiley

(So I was missing that nice tool to _find_ those mp3's which contains too much silence at the end of the file).
