I would like to read the runtime of a movie not in hours and minutes (e.g. 1:25) but only in minutes (85).
I changes some minor things in the layout, but am unable to change this one.
I'm looking forward to your help

    I think that's how the duration is returned by Media Portal. Perhaps with the help of the skin functions this can be changed. I.e. convert 1:25 to 85, 1*60+25 ...

    Thank you for your answer.
    I forget to add that the hours/minutes-version is ok for me while playing the movie (OSD), but like to read it in minutes in the menu of the skin (complete runtime)
    I searched the files of the skin but didn't find where I can change the formula for the runtime
    I tried to find out the e-mail-adress of the developer, but couldn't find it

    Filling in the data in the lists is done by the plugin, here you cannot fix the properties. only change in the plugin.

    In moving pictures (if this is the plugin) the complete runtime is written in minutes

    Just stumbled upon this thread and remembered adjusting my skin-files in the opposite direction...

    Try the skin property #MovingPictures.SelectedMovie.runtime in the skinfile.
    According to the archived wiki from 2012, this should deliver the stored runtime in minutes. (See section "Available Labels and Strings", subsection "Standard Labels").
    If that does not work, maybe some funky math with #MovingPictures.SelectedMovie.extra.runtime.hour and #MovingPictures.SelectedMovie.extra.runtime.minute can lead to the desired outcome. Although I'm not sure if you can add and multiply in the skinfile.

    Assuming you want to adjust the Moving Pictures GUI.

    I get a conflict every time a TV show claims that it stops one minute past the hour. That causes a conflict with the next hour since the one minute overage claims the entire next half hour or hour as if it was a continuing recording. Is there any way to edit the stop time so I just lose that one minute? ( like my old VCR let me do...
