Comskip and demux

Post by wntrmte »

Erik,

I ran comskip with the output_cuttermaran=1 and output_demux=1 set.
I only received the m2v file. The mp2 file was not created.
Did I overlook a setting?

Thanks,
Greg

Do provide some more info.

What kind of input file did you use?
Did you set verbose=10 and checked the log file to see if indeed audio was detected?
Can you mail the log file?

The file was an HDTV broadcast recorded to a mpg file. A one hour file was 6.4GB in size.
Star Trek - Enterprise.mpg
Verbose is at 10.

I'm not sure about the volume detection.

Here looks to be the relevant section. I will mail you the log file.

Comskip has been unable to find the audio in the mpeg file.
Could you upload a small part of the recording so I can see why?
Just start the upload and abort after say 50MByte.
I will email you the upload details

Have you had a chance to look at the upload you requested from me?

erik,
Did you get a look at the Star Trek portion I uploaded per your request?
Also, I d/led the 79.39 from your Web site, but the file dates were the same as 79.38.
Do you think you will be able to solve the AC3 formats issue?

How was your trip?

Best regards,
Greg

The arms are ok ;-) but the legs are tired from all the sitting.

That was indeed an interresting file!
All should work now. Please download build 39 again (i made a mistake with building build 39) and try again.
