Hi,
Comskip works fairly well, but some shows I cannot get quite right.

Can anyone please, please tell me how ProjectX works? I have files that comskip creates: .Xcl, .edl, and .txt. What is ProjectX reading? And what are the numbers therein? I would think frames, but they don't seem to correlate.

Seriously, I'd be so very appreciative of any help. Thanks!

Erik, it would seem the .edl is the file that I want to tweak, but I cannot understand the format. It doesn't appear to be frames, so what am I looking at when I see this:

38.67 71.91 0

its seconds since start
Commercial start time, commercial end time, zero
The last row may be a very short commercial, only there to mark the total length of the recording

Aha!
I wound up using the .Xcl file, and using Cutmode=4.
If you don't mind, when I use Cutmode=2, it doesn't seem to be frames. I tried adjusting to frames and I was way off.

So this worked,

CollectionPanel.CutMode=4
0:1:14:01
0:18:58:00
0:23:30:22
0:30:06:20
0:34:28:28
0:41:27:06
0:46:04:00
0:55:44:00
0:59:58:00
1:06:23:00
1:10:30:00
1:23:22:16
1:27:59:00
1:33:49:00
1:38:16:00
1:45:01:20
1:49:34:16
1:57:34:10
2:02:07:00
2:17:57:00
2:20:59:16
2:24:01:00


But this didn't (and I couldn't figure out what the numbers were). AGAIN, THANK YOU.

Finally, in future, can I use either the .edl or the .Xcl file?

Last question (I hope): what is cutmode=2?
When I put in frames using mpv player, it's wildly off. Too far off, honestly.
So what is cutmode=2 if not frames?

cutmode 2 means byte position in the file.
Do not use it as its very unreliable.
I was not aware cutmode 4 existed.
Will look into replacing cutmode 2 with cutmode 4 in the projectx output
