Comskip ini files

Does anyone have good working comskip ini files you would share? With my new build I downloaded the latest donators version and it does not look to be working real well. Thought I would ask before starting from scratch doing tuning on it.
Thanks
Wayne

Here is one I use it also extracts the subtitles ...You can try it see if it helps.

Code:
always_keep_first_seconds=60
always_keep_last_seconds=120
verbose=0
detect_method=123 ;; everything but scenechange
punish_no_logo=0
cc_correct_type_modifier=1
length_nonstrict_modifier=1.5 ;; required before below due to comskip.ini parsing bug
combined_length_nonstrict_modifier=1
min_show_segment_length=222
min_commercialbreak=45
use_existing_logo_file=0
logo_fraction=0.39
delete_logo_file=1
output_vdr=0
output_edl=1
output_ffmeta=0
output_ffsplit=0
thread_count=1
output_videoredo=1
live_tv=0 ; set to 1 if you use parallelprocessing and need the output while recording
live_tv_retries=4
edl_skip_field=3
lowres=10
output_srt=1
output_default=0
play_nice_start=2000 (-1 - 2359)
play_nice_end=2359 (-1 - 2359)

Here's the ini that I have been using for years. Currently using it with donator build 0.82.003. 0.82.004 was the last one that supports Windows 7 but on the donator download site, it jumps from 0.82.003 to 0.82.007.

Haven't had a problem with it.

Code:
; 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=43			;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.
validate_scenechange=1		; Default, set to 0 to force using this clues if selected above.
verbose=0				;show a lot of extra info, level 5 is also OK, set to 0 to disable
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)
max_avg_brightness=25			;maximum average brightness for a dim frame to be considered black (scale 0 to 255) 0 means autosetting
max_commercialbreak=600 		;maximum length in seconds to consider a segment a commercial break

max_commercial_size=125			;maximum time in seconds for a single commercial or multiple commercials if no breaks in between

skip_b_frames=0				; Set to 1 to force Comskip to skip frames for higher processing speed.
max_repair_size=200			; Will repair maximum 200 missing MPEG frames in the timeline, set to 0 to disable repairing for players that don't use PTS. 
disable_heuristics=4		bit pattern for disabling heuristics, adding 1 disables heristics 1, adding 2 disables heristics 2, adding 4 disables heristics 3, 255  disables all heuristics 
delete_logo_file=1			; set to 1 if you want comskip to tidy up after finishing
output_framearray=0			; create a big excel file for detailed analysis, set to 0 to disable
output_data=0				; create a dump of the user data channel, used for CC and XDS (such as V-Chip info). Can be use together with output_framearray to remote debug CC decoding

always_keep_first_seconds=30
always_keep_last_seconds=60
thread_count=2 (1-16)
;Number of threads used when decoding the video, default not added, default value 2
;;Increasing the thread count speeds up the processing on CPU's with more cores then the current thread count. Setting the number to higher then the amount of cores makes processing slower. Setting the thread_count to 1 disables multi-threaded decoding, useful in case comskip crashes when decoding the video.
lowres=10 (0-10)
;Enables resolution reduction, setting to 10 makes comskip choose the best value automatically, default not added, default value 0
;;This only works for certain types of video encoding, may not work for h.264 encoded video and may deliver bad results when used with hardware_decode=1
I compared mine to the latest 0.82.010 default ini and here is what I had changed:

0.82.010
Code:
verbose=10				;show a lot of extra info, level 5 is also OK, set to 0 to disable
Mine
Code:
verbose=0				;show a lot of extra info, level 5 is also OK, set to 0 to disable
0.82.010
Code:
delete_logo_file=0			; set to 1 if you want comskip to tidy up after finishing
Mine
Code:
delete_logo_file=1			; set to 1 if you want comskip to tidy up after finishing

0.82.010
-no entry

Mine
Code:
output_default=0			; CommercialDetector
0.82.010
-no entry

Mine
Code:
always_keep_first_seconds=30
always_keep_last_seconds=60
thread_count=2 (1-16)
;Number of threads used when decoding the video, default not added, default value 2
;;Increasing the thread count speeds up the processing on CPU's with more cores then the current thread count. Setting the number to higher then the amount of cores makes processing slower. Setting the thread_count to 1 disables multi-threaded decoding, useful in case comskip crashes when decoding the video.
lowres=10 (0-10)

;;This only works for certain types of video encoding, may not work for h.264 encoded video and may deliver bad results when used with hardware_decode=1
I added the last ones after looking at the comskip.txt file.

Thanks for the info. I had downloaded 0.082.010 and been trying to make it work. I just downloaded your ini and will see how it works.
Thanks
Wayne

Just to make sure...

You did change your comskip plugin to point to your donator version, correct?

On my server, I put my donator version in C:\Comskip

Then in the comskip plugin you set your:

exe to C:\Comskip\comskip.exe
ini to C:\Comskip\comskip.ini

Don't just copy your donator version into the directory where the non-donator build was at. Create your own directory for it.

Yes, That is what I did. That is the way I had it on my old machine.
Thanks
