Build 121: Two reasons for Comskip crashing solved

Post by erik » Sun Mar 09, 2008 12:59 pm

A couple of small but very relevant improvements
Do consider to donate if you like Comskip.


Changes in 0.79.121
- New detection method added: RESOLUTION_CHANGE (detect_method 8), replaces the unused FUZZY_LOGIC (which is always on). Resolution_change will insert a hard cutpoint when the resolution of a digital recording changes.
- Improved accuracy during reviewing of cutpoints. Comskip could be up to 15 frames off during preview.
Changes in 0.79.120
- Bug solved: Comskip crashes when the recording changes from 1080i to 480i or 720p.
Changes in 0.79.119
- Bug solved: Preview failed on certain TS files.
- During preview the 's' and 'f' keys will jump to Start and Finish of the recording
Changes in 0.79.118
- Bug solved: Previewing TS files failed once viewing near the end of the recording
- Added ini parameter: edge_step=1 Set to 2 when you need extra speed on scanning for logo's on HD files. Will make logo detection slightly worse
Changes in 0.79.117
- Bug solved: On certain MPEG PS recordings no audio was detected leading to much worse detection quality
Changes in 0.79.116
- Fixed a bug that could cause the preview to freeze when reviewing .txt or .csv files
- Improved the demux to better find the audio stream on HD TS recordings, not having audio will make detection quality much worse.
Changes in 0.79.115
- Changed the Zoomplayer Chapter list using AddChapterBySecond to output integers instead of floats
- Default comskip.ini file has now output_edl=1 to ensure correct skipping in SageTV and GBPVR
Changes in 0.79.114
- Increase input buffer to reduce strain on disks when running multiple comskip in parallel
- Solved the long outstandig "Why does Comskip find a very short commercial at the end of the recording" bug

Hi!

I have a question about the RESOLUTION_CHANGE stuff:

Is this feature only for DVB recordings?
I noticed that commercial channels sometimes show an aspect ratio change when starting commercials.

Is this method default on since it replaces FUZZY_LOGIC?

The resolution change works for any recording where the compressed stream resolution changes.
This can happen in DVB-T, DVB-S, DVB-C and in ATSC (any digital broadcast)
The resolution change method is enabled by default as it is a very robust method (if it happens)

Resolution change is different from aspect ratio change.
Aspect ratio is where there is active video inside the encoded stream of a certain resolution

Aspect ratio detection method can be separate enabled/disabled
