    Thumbs up Add the time of MP3's together?

    All,

    Is there a util that will add ALL of the MP3's times together? It would kinda cool to find out the combined time.

    Thanks!

    Check http://www.planetsourcecode.com for such a utility. If you find one with source code only, let me know and I'll compile an exe for you.

    Also, I'm in the process of designing a small mp3 player specifically for use in a car. If I'm not mistaken, it's fairly easy to calculate the a songtime. If so, I'll add this as a feature.

    Hope that helps.

    FYI, Songtime is easy (bitrate*file length), unless the file is Variable Bit rate (VBR). As far as I know there is NO easy way to tell the length of a VBR encoded mp3, other that timing how long it takes to play.. , if Im wrong, Id love to know about it so I can code it into my player.

    In winamp,add all your files to playlist,and then in the bottom line of playlist you will see something like that:"0:00/9:30:35",the second part of it is total time of music - 9 hours 30 minutes 35 seconds.

    If you use winamp you can get a total of your playtime by: Click the misc button on the bottom, then choose 'misc opts,' on that menu select 'generate HTML playlist.' On the top of that playlist you will find your total # of songs, average playtime, and total playtime, it will also let you know if you have any dead playlist entries (tracks of unknown length) which is helpful in cleaning up a large playlist. Hope that helps

    I agree using winamp and the html generator however, make sure you have "read titles on load" selected instead of demand and then do it, otherwise you will get unknown times if winamp didn't see the song.

    In other words, make sure there is no hh:mm:ss+ in the time for the songs

    (hmm, I was trying to make the + bold but it's not working for some unknown reason)
