hmmm....not sure how to give you the information. I know this is part of the process BeyondTV performs. It is the first thing to happen after a show is recorded. Then the CustomPostProcessing.xml takes over (if used) then SmartChapter (crappy commerical detection) then StreamSnip, then ShowSqueeze....

35 minutes to run comskip on a 64 minute 1080i MPEG-TS file This I recognize 21 minutes to run comskip on a 64 minute SD MPEG recorded at DVD 2.5GB/hr This is WAY to slow On a 18.GHz pentium mobile comskip processes SD at DVD 2.5GB/hr at least at 400fps meaning it should be ready in about 5 minutes...

And? Did it work? Sorry for the delay in my reply... I've been trying to tweak it ... but I still can't get it even with the ignore_sidebars. With the ignore_sidebars enabled, I can't use logo detection, since the network's logo is within the sidebar region during the show. I turned on ignore_sideb...

I uploaded build 61. Could you test this? From the changelog Changes in 0.79.61 - Added parameter for ignoring gray side bars, set ignore_side=number of pixels to ignore, check visual in debugwindow - Bug solved: Long commercials are not recognized on 60fps HD recordings I just dialed it in with ig...

I am considering a ignore_sidebars option to solve this problem...... I would like that option... the .csv I sent in had the national commercial breaks already cut out of it (the ones without the sidebars)... now that I've had time to run a few full length shows through it, its a little hit-or-miss.

A very interesting example indeed. Almost no black frames. When there are no black frames you MUST enable the detection based on silence. I made the following changes detect_method=111 ; to enable silence detection max_volume=200 ; automatic volume did not work (will have to look into that) so manu...

I will have a look if there are others clues in the broadcast
I just sent you an email with a .zip as described in the sticky thread.

HDTV Gray Bars

A local CBS station broadcasts 1080i continuously. Instead of changing aspect ratios for non HD commercials, they upscale it and put gray bars on the sides. Unfortunately they leave these bars up throughout the commercial break and they don't fade between commercials. Is there a way that I can confi...
