I have been testing version 81_072 lately on *.wtv files before I make it production. I'm seeing malfunctions in the audio line which causes a detection failure for commercials. Wondering if anybody else is encountering?

Notice the green line which to my understanding is audio.
This was with v81_072

Notice the green line on v81_071, just fine.

Same with additional 2 video files.




My config.ini:

; See comskip.txt in the distribution zip file for many settable parameters, read manual.html, tuning.html and debugwindow.html for how to tune and debug comskip
detect_method=107                  ; 1=black frame, 2=logo, 4=scene change, 8=fuzzy logic, 16=closed captions, 32=aspect ration, 64=silence, 128=cutscenes, 255=all
validate_silence=1                  ; Default, set to 0 to force using this clues if selected above.
validate_uniform=1                  ; Default, set to 0 to force using this clues (like pure white frames) if blackframe is selected above.

test_brightness=40                  ; frame not pure black if any pixels checked are greater than this, will check average brightness (scale 0 to 255)
max_avg_brightness=25               ; *************** 20 in test mode 25 normal**************** maximum average brightness for a dim frame to be considered black (scale 0 to 255) 0 means autosetting

punish_modifier=2                  ; When above average * threshold multiply score by this value
