Does any one know what Player "intervals" actually are?

In your own case (Paul) luckily there is probably very little cause for 
concern - because your files have other context available, allowing us 
to either convert/confirm, or else entirely replace the most important 
interval values. And I don't consider this difficult to tame 
sufficiently for practical purposes, again in your own case.

But as a larger issue of depending on LC intervals - yep, it's huge! 
Really a stunning eye-opener to see the different values for the 
different files. We should give a quick tip to all LC developers: DON'T 
use intervals for permanently storing media time values. :)

As for the original question: Given their arbitrary nature per OS/Media 
framework, I actually think "interval" may be the best choice of word! 
An arbitrary slice of time. Perfectly named, but utterly problematic if 
treated as anything other than arbitrary and temporary.
