With all due respect, I'm not sure how spending extra time and adding complications to our own workflows to accomodate Dropbox's broken product should be accepted as a resolution. Manually adding time at the end of files is not an acceptable solution. It takes extra time, can be forgotten about (I'm working with a team), and clients do not want 10 seconds of silence at the end of the files. Not to mention the multiple times a week I have clients come back complaining the end of their files are cut off, then I have to explain to them that it's just Dropbox and to please download the file to verify. It's a waste of time for everyone involved and creates a poor experience. Other than this issue, I love Dropbox, so I would respectfully ask this issue to not be forgotten about and not considered resolved until a proper fix has been implemented by Dropbox.

I have a very regular issue where the dropbox web player is cutting off the very last seconds of audio files.
This issue is NOT pertaining to the playback limits enforced by Dropbox plans. It's just the last few seconds of every audio file I upload, the player cuts off the end. These are all CBR MP3 files. Haven't tested with any other format.
I'm a podcast editor and multiple times per week I have clients come back to me complaining that the end of their piece is cut off. It always turns out that they were listening to the file on Dropbox's web player. Once they download the file, it's perfect.
Total time-waster for me and just not a good experience overall for clients.
Love Dropbox otherwise, and with the subscription fee every month, I would expect not to have issues like these.
Happy to provide further info or test to help resolve this issue!
