Last time, I get some advises from here that how to grep Duration from Video files in Linux. But this time, I need Windows version of that.

My Linux Command was

ffmpeg -i file.ts 2>&1 | grep Duration | cut -d ' ' -f 4 | sed s/,//  

it works nice. Otherwise, in Windows, since there are no 'grep' and 'cut', this command does not work.

So I have searched and found 'findstr' command. However I could not find replacement of 'cut'. Is there anything replace able command?

PS> I need egrep function too. I thought that findstr command can not treat plural arguments, right? :D
