I am using MB to play audiobook files of 6-10 hours duration. If I want to place the start point a some specific place, the position cursor displays in mmm:ss only. I would appreciate it displaying the time in hh:mm:ss - it's a distinct nuisance trying to translate times like 05:43:22 into mmm:ss. I realize that MB is used mostly to play much shorter music files, but even a long classical piece might benefit from this option.

Sorry, I missed adding that the display of play length in the main panel is also in mmm:ss. I'd also appreciate it being displayed in hh:mm:ss. My current book is showing 498:21 - it's not intuitive to work out its "real" play length.

Perhaps this could be an option in the Layout (s) setups.

Paul.

Two ideas:
- Add time format to "Configure Fields" setting under Preferences> Tags (2) settings
- Or clicking on a time column value could toggle to mmm:ss and hh:mm:ss format with progress bar cursor display simply following it.

Yup!  In the main window in the main player, the time is reported as mm:ss (e.g. - 85:58).  In the progress bar, and the bottom status bar, the time is reported as hh:mm:ss (e.g. - 1:25:58).  I'd like them to be same, preferably as hh:mm:ss.

Will this apply to the <Album Duration> tag as well?
