I suck at math. I need to figure out how to calculate a video duration with only a few examples of values. For example, a value of 70966 is displayed as 1:10 minutes. A value of 30533 displays as 30 seconds. A value of 7007 displays as 7 seconds.

Looks like the numbers are in milliseconds. So to convert to seconds, divide by 1000, then divide by 60 to find minutes etc.

I'm not sure if I completely understand this, but:

```
70966 / 70 seconds = 1013.8
```

So dividing the "value" by 1013.8 should get the duration, approximately...

Edit: Yes, Ben is right, you should divide by 1000. I got 1013.8 because the 70 seconds was rounded down from 70.966 seconds to 70.

It's a simple matter of division:

- 70966 / 70 seconds (1:10 minutes) = 1013.8
- 30533 / 30 = 1017.76
- 7007 / 7 = 1001

Looks like the numbers are nothing but milliseconds. 70966 displays as 1:10 minutes because it shaves of the millisecond part (last 3 digits).
