Project description

# Playlist Length

A command-line tool to calculate the length of all the vidoes in a directory


## 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

$ pip install --user -e git+

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 vidoes 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

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