I haven't tried this myself on a lot of files, but in Win7:tovarisch wrote: ↑March 28th, 2020, 10:50 amIt's kinda funny, but I can't help thinking of more efficient (lazy) ways of doing it. For instance, if you have your mp3s someplace, then using Windows Media Player you can add them to a playlist, and it will count the running length for you, I believe. I bet that on MacOS there is a similar way...
- Go to the top level folder
- Click in the search box in the address bar, and select "type:" in that bottom part that says "add a search filter"
- Select MP3
- Click on one, and do Ctrl-A (to select all)
- On the bottom toolbar, select "Show More Details"
It should show the total length of the MP3 files in that folder and its subfolders.
It worked for a file in which I have 330 files in various subfolders.
EDIT: It worked on my big store of files, 4348 files. These include things like dramatic readings I've edited, so it's not accurate to show what I myself have recorded, but it logged it as 1200:33:34. I guess that's 1200 hours, 33 minutes, 34 seconds?
