Retrieve Running Time for listen and watch post kinds? · Issue #71 · dshanske/indieweb-post-kinds

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.

Sample URLs
WordPress blueberry podcasts:

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="">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="">Spotify, here's a playlist</a> of the ones I could find:


RIP Glenn Frey

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:

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