Request: Read from a pipe (stdin) instead of a file

Post by TonyXL »

It would be great if comskip had an option to read from a pipe. I guess you'd also need a switch to let comskip know the format since it wouldn't have a file extention to work from.

are pipes in windows implemented via disk buffers?
If so, why is there an advantage?

I assume the pipe transfers data just in memory instead of writing to disk.

I'm running a file through ffmpeg first and would like to pipe that output right into comskip, instead of writing to disk and then calling comskip. I'd like to avoid the disk-writing overhead if possible.

Thanks,
Tony
