Windows Task Manager Priority

Post by Rev1979 » Sat Apr 20, 2013 4:56 pm

Sometimes it takes hours for Comskip to finish, then I look in Windows Task Manager and I will see multiple Comskip processes running, all of which have Priority reset to "low" ...

Any ideas?

Comskip always runs on priority low.
That should never be a problem.

OK, but when I raise the priority to normal it finishes ... why then is it taking so long?

Not always on my machine ... FWIW, when I drag a video file onto Comskip.exe it runs at "normal" priority...
