Length for Video Files

Post by CoffeeKid » 20 Mar 2014 13:28

v13.80.0125

Could you enable the length special property to also grab the length of video files? The data format is the same output you have for music files hh:mm:ss.

Not at the moment. Maybe later.

Btw, this is a wish, not a bug! [moved topic to wishes]

Hmm, guess this isn't gonna happen. here we are 5 years later and a "length" column still doesn't exist.

Yes it does, if you can't figure out how to add it via the GUI you can try entering this in the address bar :

Code: Select all

setcolumns(":n-27", 8);
you need a codec pack installed for it to work for all formats (it will work for common formats without though), if you don't have one installed and don't want to install one then you can alternatively use a scripted custom column and MediaInfo CLi companion app.

Maybe I should rename "Add Column" to "Add Special Column" (or so) to give users the idea that this command opens the door to all those hundreds of other columns...?

Maybe users should read the user manual...
