Live TV mode stuck in loop, strange audio/video pts

Post by nitroshot » Wed May 11, 2016 4:49 am

While running in live tv mode, Comskip 0.81.092 gets stuck in a loop with on the same position in the file and never finishes processing even when re-run comskip when the recording is complete.
Seems like a bug?

Re: Live TV mode stuck in loop, strange audio/video pts

This is a timeline problem in the recording.

A workaround for processing after the recording is finished is to set
live_tv_retries=0
