Commercial Detection Just went South

Post by marvin-miller » Sat Sep 09, 2017 5:38 am

Hi Erik;

After using Comskip for years (maybe even a decade) the detection on one channel in particular has gotten really bad. 44 minute shows are now being cut down to 25 or 27 minutes.

Are you available to take a look if I post up a recording and my .INI file? It's really causing me grief.

Best & Thanks!
Marvin

Please follow the "how to ask for help" post as it is probably some change in the broadcast

Hi Erik;

I figured it out. I use VAP to process the recordings and call Comskip using Video Redo and what was happening was that VAP was not recognizing the new Comskip release and then, instead of using Comskip, used the native Video Redo commercial detection which is total crap.

That particular bug in VAP was fixed on August 28.
