Comskip crash after "Resizing scene change array...

Post by fz1 »

Some recordings from my Nvidia Dual TV recording Comcast cable are causing comskip to crash, just after the log shows "Resizing scene change array to accomodate 2000 frames."

The .log:

Code: Select all

################################################################
Generated using Comskip 0.81.035

Ini:	C:\Program Files\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 1537 so it's full speed ahead!

The .log and part of the .mpg has completed uploading to the FTP, into "/Resizing array".

No crash with build 0.81.036
Can you verify?

No crash on these with 0.81.036 or 0.81.035, with live_tv=0.

I'd been using live_tv=1, but only on recordings that had finished recording.

Just so I'm clear, is live_tv=1 broken in 0.81.036?
Or, only running it on in-process recordings?
Or, both? I'm only processing mpeg2-ps.

Thank you

Only processing in-progress recordings is broken.
Comskip should be started after the recording is finished

It may work on mpeg2-ps, you can easily test by starting comskip shortly after the recording has started.

Thanks. Can you reproduce the crash with my sample upload using 0.81.036 and live_tv=1?

Tests on in-progress recordings don't crash, but no commercials are outputted.

It doesn't make sense.

Our settings are the same (I've used your .ini), but 0.81.036 crashes when processing the same file, on my machine.

Can you send me the generated crash dump file (with the .dmp extension)

comskip.exe.mdmp and .hdmp uploaded in Files.zip to FTP in "/Resizing array".

I didn't see any *.dmp files.

Thanks,

Could you try with the debug version I did put in your upload folder and upload the dump files like you previously did when you experience a crash
