Happy holidays and merry christmas!
Just wanted to see If I can get some help with a particular program I’m recording…
All my other recordings are working well, except for one (sportsnite) this one records the program but needs to reconverted to remove commercials
Please advise on how to resolve
See tuning Comskip and try to update the
detect_method to 255 to make it more aggressive.
You would also upload your original video with your logs for us to analyze.
Yes, I updated the detection method to 255 and I still need to reconvert the file to have commercials removed
I’m attaching 2 logs, one before reconversion and after reconversion
Appreciate any advice on how to resolve

In the old logs I see no commercials detected but in the new log I see 3 commercials detected (about 6 minutes) which is cut from the original 31 minute recording.

Yes, that’s what I’m trying to figure out
When I reconvert the file it removes commercials
But when it’s originally processed it doesn’t remove commercials
That’s why I sent you the two separate logs to see why that happening perhaps there’s an adjustment that needs to be made in the INI file
I’m sure you guys can help me figure it out
I was looking at the logs and noticed that in the logs where there are no commercials detected, comskip seems to have trouble reading this file. This could point to a recording issue with the original file. One thing you can try is if you have access the Comskip premium access program, get a copy of the latest version of Comskip and replace the once in the MCEBuddy folder and see that solves the issue.
