export to mp3 or wav not completed

• Mar 5, 2020 - 11:50

Bars between repeat barlines are not exported in mp3-format.

Compare the lengh of .mid and .mp3? How would that be meaningfull?

Exporting to mp3 with and without repeats enabled results in the different file sizes and a playback duration of 1:06. without and 1:22 with. (about 2 seconds longer each than the MuseScore playback, due to appended silence, see #268393: Request to control amount of padding added to audio export)
And I can hear the repeats too,

For MIDI export though you're right, repeats do not get exported. See also #296169: Option to honor "Play Repeats" in MIDI export

I don't think it's unreasonable for a typical user, unfamiliar with the inner workings of MuseScore, to assume that a MIDI file and an MP3 file exported from the same score with the same repeat settings would contain the same number of measures and thus would be roughly the same length.

Yes for the same number of measures (and that is a bug with MIDI export, linked to above), definitly no for filesize. Expecting those to be meaniful is just nor reasonable at all. You don't expect a cherry to be comparable in size to an apple.
A MIDI file is always way smaller than the corresponding MP3 or WAV
