Many MP3 decoders estimate the time length of an MP3 file based on
the filesize divided by the first data packet's bitrate. As songs may
start with silence and hence a low bitrate packet, this length
prediction can produce quite nonsensical values, and when jumping
through a VBR file, 50% through the file is usually not 50% through
the song.
vbrfix places a VBR null frame at the beginning of the file to tell
the MP3 player information about the song length and indexing through
the song.
vbrfix can also fix other problems with MP3s, as all non-MP3 content
is deleted (you can keep tags that you state, though). It can also
help when merging two VBR MP3s together with a merging tool and then
needing a newly-calculated VBR null frame.
