I managed to take a look at the file you made available. Unfortunately I wasn't
able to correct the zero length/bitrate problem. I was able to get TagLib to
read the file properly. (It was originally falsely detecting the beginning of a
frame but that was easy to fix.)
However, that file has a bad Xing header. Or rather, the Xing header is valid
but the values that it contains seem impossible. The reason you are getting a
bad file length is because the Xing header says there is only one frame in the
entire file. So 1 frame at 44100 Hz sample rate would mean less than one second
in length. I am not sure if this is the cause for the other files you have.
