Comskip crashing a lot after upgrading...

Post by jbuszkie » Sat Dec 11, 2010 4:53 pm

I just reinstalled sage V7 on a fresh W7 (32bit) machine.
I also grabbed the latest Comskip. 80.38

I have set up SJQ and I have noticed that a lot of the time comskip crashes.
It works sometimes... so it is working to some degree. But the crashes a lot more frequent that the older version
I was using for a long time. I also setup a client on my 64bit W7 machine with the similar results.

Below is the output from the cmd window and the crash details. The file plays fine in VLC so it's not necessarily a corrupt recording.

what can I do to help debug this?

Code: Select all

C:\Users\jbuszkie>C:\Comskip\Comskip_debug.cmd \\tower\TV\GirlMeetsGown-MariannellaKimMisty-8214113-0.mpg
Comskip 0.80.038, made using:
mpeg2dec-0.4.0 - by Michel Lespinasse <walken@zoy.org> and Aaron Holtzman
The commandline used was:
C:\Comskip\comskip.exe --debugwindow --ini=C:\Comskip\comskip.ini -n \\tower\TV\GirlMeetsGown-MariannellaKimMisty-8214113-0.mpg

Opening \\tower\TV\GirlMeetsGown-MariannellaKimMisty-8214113-0.mpg
Setting ini file to C:\Comskip\comskip.ini as per commandline
Using C:\Comskip\comskip.ini for initiation values.
ComSkip playing nice due as per command line.
Mpeg:   \\tower\TV\GirlMeetsGown-MariannellaKimMisty-8214113-0.mpg
Exe     C:\Comskip\comskip.exe
Logo:   \\tower\TV\GirlMeetsGown-MariannellaKimMisty-8214113-0.logo.txt
Ini:    C:\Comskip\comskip.ini

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


ComSkip throttles back from -0001 to -0001.
The time is now 1045 so comskip is running slowly.
