For the Add Chapters option, can the beginning chapter marks for commercials be added to the final file as well? Right now only the end chapter marks are added, which is ok if watching a show from the beginning and just skipping to the end of the commercials after a commercial break starts, but it’s a bit limited in functionality. Adding the beginning chapter marks would expand it’s usability. 2 primary scenarios that I can think of, although I’m sure there are others.
I taped the Super Bowl and I want to go to the commercials, NOT the game. I can’t do that without beginning chapter marks for the commercials.
If the Commercials are labeled “commercial”, then media servers (Plex, Emby, etc) can spot the commercials and auto-skip.
This feature has been added in today’s 2.6.2 beta build. When using the Only detect ads option along with the Embed chapters, it will not create chapters for the start of each video segment and the corresponding start of the subsequent Advertisement/commercial segment.
If you’re cutting the Ad’s and enable the Embed chapters option then it will create a chapter marker for the start of each video segment (after the ad was cut).
