Prerequisites

ffmpeg package is required for this package to work, so you need to get it installed on your system

To install ffmpeg on ubuntu

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mc3man/trusty-media
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install ffmpeg
sudo apt-get install frei0r-plugins

For other OS read instruction here

Installing

hit up your terminal and type following command

$ pip install --user playlist-length

or

$ pip install --user -e git+https://github.com/karansthr/playlist-length#egg=playlist-length

if your ~/.local/bin/ is not in PATH then run

$ export PATH=$PATH:${HOME}/.local/bin/

you may add above line of code in ~/.zshrc or ~/.bashrc etc. to repeat above step every time a terminal is opened.

To get length of all the videos in a directory, Give the path to directory as arguement

$ playlistlen path_to_directory

or use following command for current directory

$ playlistlen

By default, it will look for videos in given directory and it's sub-directories recursively, if you want it to look in the given directory only, then use --no-subdir flag, for example:

$ playlistlen path_to_directory --no-subdir

By default the media-type it will look for is video but you can specify audio or both

$ playlistlen path_to_directory --media-type audio
$ playlistlen path_to_directory --media-type both

for help use -h or --help, for example

$ playlistlen --help
