Display Movie length only

Postby ocean17 » Fri Jul 17, 2009 9:48 pm

Hi All,

Could someone let me know how to display the movie length only, rather than file date & time plus the movie length?

I know the ps3ms used to just display the movie length only and I'd like that back if it's possible. I'm using build 1.11.350 on ubuntu 9.04.

Many thanks in advance!

Hi,

In the XMB when I'm browsing through my movies. I'll have the list of movies and then underneath in a half-size font: the file-date, file-time and then movie length in hh:mm:ss.

Sorry I should have mentioned that in my first post.

Thanks!

Its the PS3 that shows that data I guess.

Have you ever seen it without that ??

Hi,

Yeah when I used the ps3 media server first, it only displayed the movie length.

As a double-check, I've just downloaded the (deprecated) Version 1.00 of the software & sure enough only the Movie Length is displayed. So it's not a PS3-side issue that causes the full file details to appear, I'm on ps3 update 2.80. I've attached a screen-shot for the sceptical ;)

Cheers to anyone who can help with this!

yes it has been added recently
some like it, others don't; make an option for this is really overkill imho

Thanks for info, I'm in the "others don't" category though.
Would it be a pain to add an option for it?

It's just that I have no use for the other 2 pieces of info & the eye is easily drawn to the file creation time instead of the movie length when they're all together.

That said, I agree it's a small thing - especially considering how superb the program is.
Sony should be paying you, it would only be half the system without it!
