RE: Xing headers optional? Re: Record bug?

It might be beneficial to us, at least as a temporary measure, to include a
header check and/or fix in Rockbox itself. That way when a recording is
made, we can check it and rockbox will make sure the headers are properly
included in the file. We'd only need to check the last couple of minutes of
the file - on my last recording, only the last minute of a 6 minute song was
cut off, so it seems that the information was written properly up until
nearly the end.

Am I understanding the nature of xing headers correctly - are they written
separately for each x amount of data, or is there only one at the beginning
or end of the file or something?

IMHO, the Xing header should be put there immediately when the file is
created and only filled-in properly when the recording is completed.

No extra copy needed.
