Can I remove just the beginning of a recording?

Post by Tatts4Life »

I'm using MCEBuddy with Comskip and it works 99% of the time. I only have an issue with one series that I recorded from Hulu with Playon. With the first recording it cut out the first minute of the show. Second record only missed a few seconds. Is there any way to tell Comskip to only cut out the first ten seconds and nothing else? Somebody suggested using the ini editor and I'm having a little trouble finding what I'm looking for. I found something on the bottom that said always keep first seconds or always keep last seconds. My issue is I want to remove the first couple of seconds though.

Do you want to only remove the first 10 seconds or do you, next the the detected commercials, also always want to remove the first 10 seconds.

Correct For this tv series I only want to remove the first few seconds, it's around 8-10 seconds. It's a Hulu plus recording so it doesn't have commercials. It just has the annoying " this show is rates MAY for bla bla bla" that I want to have removed. But for some reason Comskip ends up also cutting out part of the show.

Why not manually make an EDL file tha removes the first seconds?

Because I don't know how to make one and thought it was something easy to do with Comskip. If you could help point me to where I can find how to make one that would be great. I've tried googling how to make one and can't find anything.
