Comskip not doing anything after being started, help!

Post by erik » Mon Nov 17, 2008 7:27 pm

I just got a report of someone who could not get Comskip to work on his system
Every time he started Comskip it did do a little and then sit and do nothing.

If you experience the same you may do the following if you are processing dvr-ms files and do NOT need to process the files while being recorded:
Set
dvrms_live_tv_retries=1
in your comskip.ini

Do verify comskip is now processing the dvr-ms files by dragging and dropping a recording on comskip.exe, or even better on comskipGUI.exe
