hi guys,
May i know how to make windows explorer sort the flv video file by the duration?
I cant seem to find the correct option for it . Eg. name , date modified , type and size.
Anybody who has any idea which option to choose? Thanks.

I don't think you will have the option as .flv files are not playable by default in Windows - you need a separate program to play them, so Windows doesn't recognise them as video files, hence explorer cannot display the playing length.

.flv files don't seem to have that information in their properties - unlike other file formats.
