I have an mp3 file that plays OK on computer but there is a problem to play it on mp3 player.

ffmpeg shows this:

$ ffmpeg -i file.mp3
[mp3 @ 0x8de72a0] Invalid size in frame , skipping the rest of tag.
[mp3 @ 0x8de72a0] max_analyze_duration reached
[mp3 @ 0x8de72a0] Estimating duration from bitrate, this may be inaccurate
Input #0, mp3, from 'file.mp3':
  Duration: 00:27:44.50, start: 0.000000, bitrate: 55 kb/s
    Stream #0.0: Audio: mp3, 22050 Hz, mono, s16, 56 kb/s

Can I fix this problem with some utility? like ffmpeg or mencoder?


You can try MP3Diags. It has a gazillion of tests and is able to fix many problems in MP3 files.
