Are those durations from actually playing the file? It's not uncommon for 
the container's metadata to be wrong and it sounds as if that's what's wrong 
(when different tools show different info, it's usually a metadata problem).

Please verify that the output file actually has 1:09:30 of content.

And what are you trying to accomplish? Just re-encoding the files or 
something else?
