What are the settings to only generate edl's?

This seems simple, but I can’t figure it out. All I want to do is generate an edl and not touch the video file. My settings are below. Is there something else that’s needed? i don’t see any setting that specifically states, “only generate edl”.

  1. Ad remover: Yes (Comskip)
  2. Rename without converting

Ok, thanks. I tried that and it does appear to be creating an edl, but when it’s done, I can’t find an edl anywhere. I’m not seeing how to move it to the correct directory either, but first thing is just to find it. :slight_smile:

It will be with the converted file if there were ads detected. Check the logs for EDL

Ok, i got a chance to check the log and here’s what i found. It seems to find commercials. not sure I understand all of what is being said in the logs though.

The comskip.ini file in the MCEBuddy comskip directory is either missing, corrupted or inaccessible

Ah, I have a custom ini that’s named in incorrectly. I’ll fix that and try again.
