search using grep

Hi all,

I have a folder with many files. I need to get all the filenames with the value "<f id=audio-time>*:*:*</f>" word.
* may be any integer.

I used find . -type f -exec grep -H '<f id=audio-time>.:.</f>' {} \;
command to get.

but i am not able to find the correct values.

Any one please help me on this. thanks in advance.

Try the following command :
find . -type f -exec grep -H '<f id=audio-time>[0-9]*:[0-9]*:[0-9]*</f>'

find . -type f | xargs grep -H '<f id=audio-time>[0-9]*:[0-9]*:[0-9]*</f>'
