Xing and Fraunhofer VBRI

Can you search the file for the string VBRI? has details
about VBRI headers, and they start with that string.

I also have a few files from users that get 0 length & 0 bitrate, but valid
values for sampleRate and channels.  The only interesting thing I've noticed
in my case is the protectionEnabled bit is set to true, but perhaps that
happens for all files.  I'd also be happy to send a test file somewhere if
someone would like to take a look at it.
