add in the sort by the option: "length"

Post by duduelg » Fri May 08, 2020 11:03 pm

Is it possible to add in the classification by the option: "length", as it exists in Windows Explorer?

I really wanted this feature, because I have thousands of videos separated into more than 100 subfolders and, with this option, I was able to organize the files by length (video length) and thus eliminate duplicate files, following the thumbnail view. The files are in different formats and video encodings; therefore, tools that look for duplicate files do not work in my case.

As I said, there is this function in Windows Explorer, however, it takes a long time for Windows Explorer to organize thousands of video files (more than 30 minutes) in that order of duration. And every time I turn off the computer, I have to do this research again.

I would be grateful for an answer and even more grateful if that option was put in a future version of this great app!

Sorry for my English, I'm not fluent!

PlayTime Quickly calculate the total play time of a list of most any music or movie file.

How to extract duration time from ffmpeg output?

There are video "catalogers" (or similar) out there.
(I've never used any of them.)
Perhaps, tinyMediaManager or Other Useful Tools.

Thanks, but it didn't work for me. The program does not show thumbnail views.

I need a tool that shows files in thumbnail views and is organized in order of duration, either descending or ascending quickly, as the "Everything" program does.

Example: there is a list of 100 video files, most with different video times, but there are two files with equal content and viewing time. I want to see these two files side by side in the thumbnail view and decide to delete this duplicate file.
As I said, programs that find duplicate files don't work in my case, because although the video content is the same, they are in different formats.

A 'Length' column is currently in development.

Searching, indexing and sorting by length/duration information is in development.

Thanks for the suggestion.
