I'm using MCEBuddy with their built in Donor version and it works great. I donated to get the full install and put it on my Windows 10 server in D:\Plex\comskip\comskip.exe and then specified this path in MCEB. None of the commercials are cut. I then tried dropping the video on the comskipGUI.exe app in it runs but no skipped version is saved.

Can anyone provide some recommendations on how to get this Donor version to run properly and save the skipped version? I'm processing MP4 videos fyi.

Thanks

Windows 10 is not the problem.
Comskip will never edit a video file, it is only intended to identify where the commercials are and it will output this in a small file.
You have the put the donor version in the same folder as the original version otherwise MCEbuddy will not work.

Ok, so just to be clear, even though MCEB has a setting to declare an outboard directory, I have to put comskip in the folder under the MCEB installation directory?

No, you have to put comskip in the same folder as where the original comskip that came with MCEBuddy was.

Thanks for the guidance Erik. Now I have my ini file tweaked as best I can but I'm still finding that in a show like the Late Show or Evening Magazine, the firs commercial break is completely removed, but subsequent commercial breaks later in the show leave approx 20 seconds of the last commercial in the video. Sometimes the last second or so of the show is cut off before the commercial cut. Below is my ini file, can you make any recommendations for settings to change to eliminate this?

; See comskip.txt in the distribution zip file for many settable parameters, read manual.html, tuning.html and debugwindow.html for how to tune and debug comskip
detect_method=111 ;1=black frame, 2=logo, 4=scene change, 8=fuzzy logic, 16=closed captions, 32=aspect ration, 64=silence, 128=cutscenes, 255=all
validate_silence=1 ; Default, set to 0 to force using this clues if selected above.
validate_uniform=1 ; Default, set to 0 to force using this clues (like pure white frames) if blackframe is selected above.

max_brightness=60 ;frame not black if any pixels checked are greater than this (scale 0 to 255)
test_brightness=40 ;frame not pure black if any pixels checked are greater than this, will check average brightness (scale 0 to 255)

ticker_tape=0 ; Amount of pixels from bottom to ignore in all processing
logo_at_bottom=0 ; Set to 1 to search only for logo at the lower half of the video, do not combine with subtitle setting
punish=0 ; Compare to average for sum of 1=brightness, 2=uniform 4=volume, 8=silence, 16=schange, set to 0 to disable
punish_threshold=1.3 ; Multiply when amount is above average * punish_threshold
punish_modifier=2 ; When above average * threshold multiply score by this value
intelligent_brightness=0 ; Set to 1 to use a USA specific algorithm to tune some of the settings, not adviced outside the USA
logo_percentile=0.92 ; if more then this amount of logo is found then logo detection will be disabled
