Timing quicktime files.

Discussion in 'Amateur Video Production' started by Martin Cleaver, Apr 14, 2006.

  1. I have a project involving about 500 quicktime files and I need to know
    the duration of each (between 10 seconds and 10 minutes). Is there any
    easier way than opening each in turn, zipping to the end and checking
    it there, then writing it down? Is there a utility that shows a list of
    file properties and video duration? (WIndows XP)

  3. That's a great idea! ANd it works (largely) were it not that a few
    files give a completely wrong length.

    An exported M3U does give the length in seconds of each file, but a few
    are absent and then playing them in Winamp it becomes apparent that a
    file of 3'40" is suddenly thought to be 39 minutes long. But that
    isn't many, so I can do something with it!

    I'll start tinkering!

    Thanks and regards

    I did and it's no use because it seems to invent durations of between
    200 and 1000 percent of the real length :(
