Retrieve Running Time for listen and watch post kinds? · Issue #71 · dshanske/indieweb-post-kinds https://github.com/dshanske/indieweb-post-kinds/issues/71

For sites like Soundcloud, ITunes, Netflix, youtube (if it's available) it would be nice to retrieve the "running time" of the music, show, film, etc. to display as a running time in the UI for listen, watch, and jam types (rather than the published/updated) for other post types.

When not scrape-able, allowing one to simply enter a 0:00:00 time and a finish time and letting it display the appropriate running time (without entering a date) would be useful for these types as well. (I'm presuming it requires dates to calculate currently as I haven't yet checked....)

 

I heard a recent episode of Leo Laporte's This Week in Google mentioning this post and a relatively <a href="http://www.newsweek.com/60-versions-leonard-cohens-hallelujah-ranked-303580">recent article listing a number of covers</a>. He said he thought you had a master list of over 100, but I didn't run across it.

For those on <a href="https://open.spotify.com/user/chrisaldrich/playlist/5mFGiIHKCQhJcCh0eFDdf4">Spotify, here's a playlist</a> of the ones I could find:

It’s not just that one song, but four entire albums that Brubeck did that experiment with time signatures. I’ve created a Spotify playlist for those interested: https://open.spotify.com/user/chrisaldrich/playlist/05G7ztvAHYIELGAkvbYkbU

I’m certainly anything but a musician, but Robert Greenberg’s Great Courses Lecture series Understanding the Fundamentals of Music [http://www.amazon.com/Understanding-Fundamentals-Music-Robert-Greenberg/dp/1598032860] has a great lecture that focuses on Blue Rondo and its relation to time.
