Description denelson83 2005-09-29 05:46:59 UTC
The URL associated with this enhancement is to a sample of where this could be

You can see on that page in the "File history" section an entry that looks like

* (del) (cur) 14:39, 3 February 2004 . . Denelson83 . . 0x0 (30616 bytes)
(Two-tone EBS/EAS attention signal, 853 Hz + 960 Hz)

In the current version of MediaWiki used on, all uploaded files
are treated as images by default, and as a result, you get image resolution
figures for sound files such as OGG or WAV.  Instead of showing an image
resolution figure for sound files, why not show the length of the sound in the
file in minutes and seconds, as well as channel type, bitrate and sample rate?

The example above could then look like this:

* (del) (cur) 14:39, 3 February 2004 . . Denelson83 . . 0:25, Mono, 40kbps,
22kHz (30616 bytes) (Two-tone EBS/EAS attention signal, 853 Hz + 960 Hz)

I'd love to see this feature.  One of the fair use criteria for sound samples on
EN is that they be short and low quality, so it would be extremely useful to be
able to see the length and quality of a clip without having to download it.

This information is extremely easy to get: the "ogginfo" command efficiently
pulls it out of the file's metadata.

This bug has been resolved, isn't it ?
Comment 3 Tim Starling 2008-02-26 14:46:24 UTC
Indeed it has.
