Hi,

I am looking for a website that lists the track times, not just the

track titles on a cd. Any suggestions?

Thanks.

e.g. Tool - Schism <b>5:29</b>


This is an example of one track that displays how long the song is. Most sites that sell cd's only have the song title. Get it?

When you play the CD's ... what program do you use.
I suggest you check the players info.
Not sure if you mean to show as you play or to record the time when you burn them?

Example:
I use Winamp to play all my music whether its downloads or burned CD's or store bought CD's
Winamp has plugins that show this info for you...

Hope that helps :)

But when you download songs of the net you don't know how long the song actually is, people may have modified it or something that's why I wanted to know so I could get the exact song as on the cd.

well I don't think there is anyway to be able to tell the time/length of a song BEFORE you download it.Unless its listed.

Hi. Lets see if I can confuse the heck out of everybody including myself. :)

You usually see info about the file such as "128Kbps 44Khz" So if you know the size(which is usually displayed also) say 2.79 Mb for instance, you can figure the length of play to within seconds (depending on rounding to arrive at 2.79).

2.79 Mb x1024x1024 = 2925527 bytes actual size(the decimal vs binary thing)

128 kilobits/sec rate-> 128000 bits /8 bits per byte= 16000 bytes/sec

So 2925527/16000= 182.85 seconds->actual length of my actual sample is 183 seconds(remember the rounding)

:D Hope this helped.
