Hi Peter

325625625 is only 32.5sec of video. 552892592040 would be 55290 seconds,
which is 921 mins, which is 15.35hrs! If it was 55 billion, that would make
more sense. Can you just recheck your numbers and also let us know what
format video you are using, codec, wrapper, etc. Also, which version of LC
are you using?
