The current version of Comskip (donator build) in MCEBuddy is 0.82.003.
Yes, I know we can add our own upgraded Comskip donator build.
Biggest feature in the current Comskip? v0.82.011 is built with FFMPEG 4.3 decoders
Next best? Ad detection for 4K and 10-bit (HDR) decoders.
Also for the person asking about ticker/crawl removal, look for “ticker” in the INI file. Notice v0.82.007 added an INI parameter for detecting a top ticker/crawl. So if that is what they were asking for, the newer comskip version is needed, however, hardware assist decoders are only available in the donator version.
I would be willing to donate/buy MCEBuddy again if that was the blocking factor to getting an upgraded donator comskip version in MCEBuddy (or at least in the Donator version of MCEBuddy). Sure, I can get my own upgraded donator version of comskip and configure MCEBuddy to use my version of comskip, but that doesn’t really help anyone else.
Is this on the MCEBuddy roadmap (for 2023?) now that there’s also a newer version of FFMPEG out (v6.0). I’m guessing Comskip statically links its FFMPEG libs, but I suspect a newer FFMPEG for MCEBuddy will also help it (and the HandbrakeCLI?) with better HW/GPU decoding/encoding.
I also noticed that the v0.82.003 donator build with MCEBuddy does not allow the “–cuvid” option to indicate the hardware_decode should use the nVidia hardware decoders (i.e. CUDA).
