Commercial skip fails when the .edl file is missing.

Post by Burger23 »

SYSTEM: Windows 8.1 and MCEBuddy
MCEBuddy 2.5 Beta 8 using WTV Profile
Comskip Donators version 0.8.09
Donator version extracted into
C:\Program Files\MCEBuddy2x new\comskip\comskip.exe- existing files were over-written
I have not touched the Comskip.ini file
Suddenly, for no known reason, my commercial skips fail when the .edl file is missing.


2023-08-31T11:03:06 MCEBuddy.CommercialScan.Scanner --> EDL: Minimum segment size 4 seconds.
--> EDL Setting (ForceEDL) -> False
--> EDL Settings (ForceEDLP) -> False
2023-08-31T11:03:07 MCEBuddy.CommercialScan.Scanner --> EDL: Initial skip seconds adjustment 0 seconds.

Any ideas?? Thanks in advance
ALSO: Version is showing up as FREE eventhough I downloaded from the Donator page

I'm not fully aquintanted with MCEbuddy but it might be possible that EDL files are the only way comskip can communicate with MCEbuddy.
Have you tried setting

Code: Select all

in your comskip.ini? Maybe that might help.
