[LAU] Mplayer problem with some mp3s

Hello everyone!
   It's not bad, when mplayer shows an mp3 to be longer than it is, I ev3en had 
a few, that looked a little shorter and were allright. But here I have a bunch 
of mp3s, that mplayer shows to be exactly half as long as they are and after 
that time it quits playing. I finally decoded them with mpg321 and that 
worked, but it's a bloody nuisance doing it. I thought they really were broken 
upto yesterday evening, when my brother played one of them on his windows 
   Does anyone have an idea, what this might be? I mean, as far as I know, 
there is some mpg123 or mpg321 code in mplayer, at least occasionally, when 
there are glitches, I see something saying mpg123 or similar before the actual 
error message or info.
   Warm regards
