Site should display movie play time (length) on page somewhere

    I generally download a video in the morning to watch during my lunchbreak.  There's quite a range in length of films.  Many of them are too long for my lunch break.


    It would be great to see the playing time of the movie on the information page somewhere.

    It would also be good to have the filesize of the file that's going to be downloaded, perhaps as a tooltip over the download link.

    Thanks for the site.

    Thanks for the feedback. Did you notice under the downloads that there are multiple bit rate files? So, you don't have to download the really big files, you could choose the MP4, for example. We will be showing length in the near future.

    Yes I've seen the different versions of the files.  That's handy (I don't need high res usually) but my problem isn't download size, it's playing time.

    Looking forward to having a standardised way of knowing how long each film runs for.  Thanks.

    Displaying the length of the movie is a great idea and something I have been wondering about as well.

    We've added this as an overlay over the thumbnail, if you hadn't already noticed Wink

    Thanks for the bug report though, very good suggestion
