# Convert miliseconds to minutes, and seconds

I found this code to convert miliseconds to minutes, and seconds and I don't see how the calculations can work.

it seems to me the calculation would be

double time = miliseconds/1000000/60
int minutes = Integer.parseInt(time)

If I was using C rather than Java I would then do:

int seconds = (time-minutes)*100

To aquire the seconds

I don't know how to get an integer value for the seconds.  I am attaching the code I found and if anyone has an explaination as to how it would work or how I can get an integer of the remainder of my minute calculation I would appreciate it.  I don't see how the included code can work.
Cheers sarge

public static void convertMillis(int Millis){
String convert = String.format("You have %d hour(s), %d minute(s), and %d second(s)",
Millis/(1000*60*60), (Millis%(1000*60*60))/(1000*60), ((Millis%(1000*60*60))%                 (1000*60))/1000);
System.out.println(convert);
}

Check if this works for you:

``````    public static void convertMillis(int Millis)
{
int hours = Millis / (1000 * 60 * 60);

Millis -= hours * 1000 * 60 * 60;

int minutes = Millis / (1000 * 60);

Millis -= minutes * 1000 * 60;

int seconds = Millis / 1000;

String convert = String.format("You have %d hour(s), %d minute(s), and %d second(s)",
hours,
minutes,
seconds);

System.out.println(convert);
}
``````

This is the code I put in:

int Millis = Integer.parseInt(rec.getString("length").trim());

int hours = Millis / (1000 * 60 * 60);
Millis -= hours * 1000 * 60 * 60;
minutes = Millis / (1000 * 60);
Millis -= minutes * 1000 * 60;
seconds = Millis / 1000;

The milliseconds value is coming from a database and it is the length of an audio file.  For example the value is 136333000 and if I calulate it in my old way I get 2.27.  If my thinking is correct that is ABOUT 2 minutes and 27 seconds.  When I used the above code It came to 52 minutes and 13 seconds.  I must have something screwed up.  What do ya think.

I think I discovered something.  The values I am using must not be milliseconds.  I is the valued that is returned from getting the durations of an audio file using the java audio functions.  I thought I read it was milliseconds but I must be wrong.  I used your code but substituted 1000000 for 1000 and it works.  Does that make sense.
Cheers!

Yes, it seems you have microseconds.
