    Anyway to get total length of videos from a folder.


    I have a folder with 1.3tb of video in and I want to find out the total length of all those files. Is there anyway to do this?
    Thanks.

    Open the folder in File Explorer and select View tab then Details and then Add Columns and you can select Length and it will show the length of each video. Under the Add Colums select Choose Columns and it will list a lot more choices also.

    Thanks it does work, but not completely what I'm looking for. I want to view the length of video files in multiple folders, inside another folder. So I have a "TV" folder with many TV series in and I want the length of all the files in each TV series folder as well. When I add the length column it doesn't show anything. Here is a picture of what it looks like - Click image for larger version

    I think Length only works for each file. Check on that Choose Columns and see it there is anything that may work, there are a ton of choices and what they all do I do not know.

    Depends on the File Type


    Windows Explorer (File Explorer?) won't show you much info about folders or their contents (Attributes & Type are exceptions).
    You can:

    • Select all of the files inside a folder
    • Right click and choose "Properties"
    • View the info in the Details tab

    Note:
    On my PC, I cannot view the "Length" of flv files.
    You may have to "Group by" > "Type" and then select each type (flv, mp4, etc.) separately.
    If you select less than 15 or 16 files the information should appear in the Details pane.
