I’m using MCEBuddy in conjunction with Plex Media Server’s Post Processing script capabilities.
PMS’ commercial skipping is broken and continues to hang - I can’t trust it. I never ran into this issue when I was using the comskip that’s included with MCEBuddy (thank you).
PMS puts temp recordings into a “/.grab” folder. When the recording completes, it runs it’s broken version of comskip, theoretically writes an edl file (this doesn’t actually happen), and then runs the post-processing script (in my case, calling MCEBuddy).
Because of the errors in PMS, I want to have a conversion task that looks at the path of the file - based on that path it runs one conversion task versus another. Specifcally:
- If the path name includes “tv-commercials”, I want it to run “conversion task A” that includes comskip
- If the path name includes “tv”, I want it to run “conversion task b” that doesn’t include comskip
Am I missing this with the existing file mask capability? I know I can restrict a conversion task to a particular monitor location - I can’t do that when it’s calling the CLI. I’d like to extend that concept to include file path.
