I have created my own application for organising my video library. when the application starts a datagridview displays all of the videos in my database. i can't get it to display the duration of each video. i assumed i'd be able to loop through each row in the datagridview and use the FileInfo class to look up the properties of each file and get the duration from there because if you look at the properties of any .avi and then click on Details you can see the duration of the video but i can't figure it out. can anyone help me?
