So I just recently got the donation version and wanted to start using h.264 since I have HDHR Extends.

I'm seeing an odd issue. With the free one and mpeg everything worked fine.
With the donation version and me using h.264 I am noticing some of my recordings don't get processed.

It makes a .txt file in all of them but seems to randomly only process.
I can see the process start for a few seconds and it just vanishes.

I played around for a bit and can pick a show that's on, start a recording, see the process spin up and vanish. What's odd though I can cancel the recording, delete it and do it again and every so often it does start and keep running and work.

Am I doing something wrong or missing something?
I'm using the same config file that worked before the donation version.

Using NextPVR fwiw too.

Thanks!

For some .h264 recordings comskip fails if started during the recording.
YOu can test if this is the cause by dragging and dropping a complete recording on comskipGUI.exe
If comskip processes the entire file you have found the cause
Make sure to start comskip after the recording is finished

The ones that don't process during recording will if I run at the end. Sometimes they will process during the recording if I start and stop the recording a few times too.
Because of this I'd have to assume it has the ability to do it and is some sort of odd bug maybe?

The .h264 container format is difficult to read. If comskip starts processing to early after starting the recording it may work
Tray to wait 5 to 10 minutes after recording starts before starting comskip
