-===== Finding Out the Length of An Audio Track ===== 
  
-by Rill 
- 
-If you want to find out the length of an audio track from the command line, there are at least two ways to do this. 
- 
-  * Open a terminal "Ctrl+Alt+t" or or open a console "Ctrl+Alt+f1-6". 
- 
-==== Use ecasound ==== 
- 
-You will need to have the package "ecasound" installed. 
- 
-<code> 
-sudo apt-get update 
-sudo apt-get install ecasound 
-</code> 
- 
-  * Type the following command, substituting your actual file name for "file_name".<code> 
-ecalength file_name 
-</code> 
-  * Here is an example of your output.<code> 
-file_name 904.784s ( 5m4) 
-</code> 
- 
-==== Using soxi ==== 
- 
-  * **Note:** It may be necessary to install a sox library for mp3 files.<code> 
-sudo apt-get update 
-sudo apt-get install libsox-fmt-mp3 
-</code> 
-  * Type the following command, substituting file_name for your actual file name.<code> 
-soxi file_name | grep Duration 
-</code> 
-  * For the same file we used in the "ecalength" command, the output looks like this:<code> 
-Duration       : 00:15:03.70 = 19926497 samples ~ 67777.2 CDDA sectors 
-</code>
