    How to Convert frames into minutes and seconds

    Time Indicator
      Hi,

      does anyone know how to convert frames into time (minutes and seconds). I need the users to view the swf with current time being played and over time. I have 2152 frames in total and I want that to be converted to time. Can anyone help me on this. I would really appreciate it. It is very urgent!!!!

      Thanks

          That depends entirely on the framerate of the movie. At the default
          12fps, 12 frames would be one second; 24 frames would be two. At 24fps, 24
          frames would be one second.

          Judging by your four exclamation points, I'd say it's definitely urgent!
          Well, again, if you're at 12fps, 2152 frames would take 179 seconds, or 2
          minutes and 59 seconds. I arrived at that number by dividing 2152 by 12.
          Keep in mind, though, framerate is actually more of a guideline than an
          exact figure. Framerate determines the rate at which Flash will *try* to
          display content. On an especially slow computer, the Flash Player may not
          be able to keep up, and the same number of frames might actually take more
          time.
