hi,

I making a program using the mpegdll.dll, it has a .length property, to display the time, but it is in milliseconds. I tried converting it to Minutes and seconds but had no luck, can anyone show me how to do it. Currently I have this

T := ((MPEG1.Length div 1000) div 60);

I := IntToStr(T);

Label3.Caption := I

Now the time I get is rounded like say 4 minutes, how do I get the seconds too, and how to format the label so it is displayed like this 0:00 (Minutes:Seconds). I'm not even sure my calculation is correct so please show the full procedure.

Thanks

Start your 7-day free trialWe could do it like this :

T := ((MPEG1.Length / 1000) / 60);

label3.Caption := IntToStr(Trunc(T)) + ':'+IntToStr(Frac(T));

A sample would help.

Thanks

T is double? Correct?

S is String? Correct?

To translate T to string you must use FloatToStr....

OR to get minutes ... You need :

IntToStr(Trunc(T)) ---> Trunc gets the integer value of T;

to get minutes :

Frac(T) ---> gets the fractional part of T....

So if you got 2 values after comma --->

var seconds : string;

seconds := Trunc(Frac(T)*100);

Label3.Caption := IntToStr(Trunc(T)) + ':'+IntToStr(Trunc(Frac(T)

ok here is the full code

Var

T : Double;

Begin

T := ((MPEG1.length /1000) /60);

Label3.Caption := IntToStr(Trunc(T))+':'+ IntToStr(Frac(T)*100); =>> here I get Incompatible types Integer and Real.

Any ideas

See Frac returns a real value.... So, we do this :

If frac(T) is 0.32 ---> * 100 --> 32 ---> change to integer ---> Trunc(32)

This is the code --> IntToStr(Trunc(Frac(T)*100

Regards, Zif.

maybe this is all you need. Drop a TButton, a TLabel and a TEdit on a blank form and put this in the buttons OnClick handler. Now you can test the format of milliseconds to HH:MM:SS:FF.

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender

// frames in 25 fps (PAL), can also be 30 (NTSC)

const FPS = 30;

var H, M, S, F, MS : Integer;

begin

MS := StrToInt(Edit1.Text);

H := (((MS div 1000) div 60) div 60) mod 60;

M := ((MS div 1000) div 60) mod 60;

S := (MS div 1000) mod 60;

F := ((MS mod 1000) * FPS) div 1000;

Label1.Caption := Format('%.2d:%.2d:%.2d-%.2

end;

This function outputs *very* fast.

Slash/d003303

When reading this thread, I just wanted to say that IntToStr is rather slow and using and rounding lots of floats doesn't help either...

I guess the fastest/shortest way of doing this is:

Label1.Caption:=Format('%d

This doesn't display hours, but I think that's ok... few Mpegs will last more than one hour and even then, something like "87 minutes" is quite normal for movies...

P.S.: d003303, what does H := (((MS div 1000) div 60) div 60) mod 60; do? Are you a workaholic and your day "only" has 60 hours? *bg*

ZifNab's a workaholic as well... his minute has 100 seconds!

hellfire: If you used ZifNab's code, you should change IntToStr(Trunc(Frac(T)*100

If you use div you will always get an integer; It rounds everything so you can assign the result to an integer.

Use / and you get a float or double ---> if you need numbers after comma, just take this float minus the integer part of it and you got it!
