How to fix a missing video duration in a playlist in SharePoint and Microsoft Lists
If you’ve been busy creating your playlists, you might have noticed a little glitch in the system. Normally, adding videos to your playlist in SharePoint or Microsoft Lists is a piece of cake, and the system automatically adds to the list how long each video is.
But every once in a while, SharePoint decides to go on strike, and your playlist shows videos with a missing duration. Frustrating, right? Don’t worry; I’m going to show a straightforward fix for you.
To fix the missing duration on your videos do the following:
- In the playlist click the video not showing the duration
- In the tollbar click Edit to modify the list item properties
- Add the duration of the video in the following format
In the image illustrating this post you can see the video has a duration of 2 minutes and 24 seconds, so the value to add in the duration column is 00:02:24
- Click Save to apply the changes
The updated value becomes immediately visible in the playlist and this is valid for playlists in Microsoft Lists or playlists added to SharePoint pages.
