Post by zukex »

So basically i have a 30min recording and at the beginning there's 2 minutes of some chat show with a logo on top

i have

delete_show_before_first_commercial=1
delete_show_before_or_after_current=1

and detect_method=43,

but i won't delete the 2mins from the first show

Detection Methods to be used:
1) Black Frame
2) Logo - Give up after 2000 seconds
3) Fuzzy Logic
4) Aspect Ratio


ComSkip throttles back from -0001 to -0001.
The time is now 0135 so it's full speed ahead!

am i doing something wrong or is there some special trick i can use to force it to delete the first show block if no commercial presedes it?

The recording of 30 minutes may be too short to cut out 2 minutes at the start
The algorithm used to decide if something is "before the first" commercial has a protection against cutting too much. however that "too much" is specified as a fraction of the total i.s.o. a certain maximum time. I need to change this.

Set verbose=10 and mail me the log
