General question for all DVD Tracking software

Is there a way in Guzzlefish, Afficionado, or Profiler to add up the total running time of all your DVDs?

Sure, just click on A.I., get the running time, put it in the calculator, then click on Beverly Hills Cop, get the running time, etc.

Wash, rinse, repeat!

Come on now, with all the technology we have there must be an easier way.

dont count on it. even if you find it, you'll still have to enter some kind of info....so I agree with littlefuzzy. too bad a simple barcode and scanner cant do it.

The information is already in there. It wouldn't be too hard to do, I just don't think anyone's ever cared about it.

Planning on a loooooooong 201 film marathon are we? Better look at this thread for inspiration between DVDs.

I believe in DVDprofiler you can export the database into excel (make sure you have the time collumn checked). Then just do a basic sum of that collumn. It's a lot more complicated than it should be, but it's one way to do it.

Thanks to my Excel spreadsheet that I maintain along with DVDprofiler I know it'd take me a little over 11 weeks to watch all my dvds back to back with no breaks (add a day or two to account for the disc switching and waiting for the fbi warnings/intros).
