I saw many pages in Stack overflow but ever page used to show how to get length of a video in video view but i require without video view.
You could use the MediaMetadataRetriever to get such an information. This class is meant to be used by users who wants to get specific informations about a media without having to use the
Here’s a sample of how to use it :
MediaMetadataRetriever retriever = new MediaMetadataRetriever(); retriever.setDataSource(your_data_source); String time = retriever.extractMetadata(MediaMetadataRetriever.METADATA_KEY_DURATION); long timeInmillisec = Long.parseLong( time ); long duration = timeInmillisec / 1000; long hours = duration / 3600; long minutes = (duration - hours * 3600) / 60; long seconds = duration - (hours * 3600 + minutes * 60);
