Exception raised, Comskip is terminating

Post by ToonGal » Thu Dec 07, 2006 9:40 pm

Hey Erik!

All previous verisons v62 and earlier worked flawlessly. But now, since v63, and now v64, I've been getting Exception errors. It crashes almost immediately upon start. Doesn't seem to run. Basically the same comskip.ini file too. The exact phrasing is: "Exception raised, Comskip is terminating".

If it is helpful, the comskip .exe and .ini files are in the same directory, but the directory is displayed differently between them. Also, you seem to have changed this since v62 too. Might be the problem, or just coincidence.

Will be using v62 to keep up with the new shows in the mean time, but can test any time there's a new version. Any help I can give, please ask.

Thanks in advance, hun! :)

PS. I'm including the output .log file I ran on my example, but it is the same for all files:

Code: Select all

Detection Methods to be used:
	1) Black Frame
	2) Logo - Give up after 2000 seconds
	3) Scene Change
	4) Fuzzy Logic
	5) Closed Captions
	6) Aspect Ratio
	7) Silence


ComSkip throttles back from 0800 to 0200.
The time is now 1235 so comskip is running slowly.
