Create .edl file with Comskip?

I just tried Comskip and it seems to work ok, but it only creates a .txt. I have edited the .ini file with output_edl=1, but I still only see a text file created. Am I missing something? I am pretty sure it is reading the .ini file because I have set verbose=0 to stop logging and that seemed to work. Chad

Hi,

I found this thread in the Comskip support forums:

http://www.kaashoek.com/comskip/view...&highlight=edl

Quote from that thread:
Quote:
Set output_edl=1
Drag and drop the previously generated .txt file on comskip.
Hit the 'W' key and comskip will generate the .edl file.
I didn't see anything that says it can happen automatically. You might want to do some searches over there and see what you turn up?

It does create it automatically, but the edl file isn't created until the process is completely finished. Did you wait for it to finish?

Well I have it working, but I had to use Comskip Monitor. I was using Dirmon2 before, but not sure why it did not work. I thought that I did wait until the file was done, but now that you mentioned that I might not have. Now that I installed Comskip Monitor I like it better anyway. I like how it has the option to run at scheduled times and I could not figure out how to do that with Dirmon2.

In the past I was using SA, but can not get it to work on one of my local channels that I record with a lot. I am hopping this might help.
Thanks, Chad

you also need to set output_default=0 in compskip.ini

Setting
output_edl=1
should force the creation of the EDL file, no need to set output_default=0

Dirmon2 works, but you have to specify the ini cmdline option.
Code:
[Job Description 1]
Name = Comskip
Processor = C:/Program Files/SageTV/Comskip/comskip.exe
Targets Are Paths = 0
Targets Are Extensions = 1
Command Line Options = --ini="c:\program files\sagetv\comskip\comskip.ini"
Must Exist 1 = mpg
Must Exist Logic = OR
Must Exist 2 = 
Must And Or Must Not Exist Logic = AND
Must Not Exist 1 = edl
Must Not Exist Logic = OR
Must Not Exist 2 = 
Directory 1 = //sagetv-server/tv
Target 1 = mpg
Resources Needed = 33
Timeout Enabled = 0
Timeout = -1
Priority Boost Due To Job Description = 0
Priority Boost Due To Age = 1
Priority Boost Due To Name = 0
Process Subdirectories = 0
Wait Until File Is Finished = 0
Wait Until File Is Idle = 0
Wait Until File Is Not Growing = 0
Wait Until File Is Not Growing Time = 1
Wait Until Drive Is Idle = 0
Wait Until Drive Is Idle Time = 2
Hide Console = 1
Blackout Enabled = 0
Blackout Start Time = 0
Blackout End Time = 0

Make sure that you have the ini file in your recording directory(ies), not just where the comskip exe lives. It should output the edl file while processing is in progress, and if you set enable_livetv (or is is just live_tv?) to 1 it will process files as they are recording and output the commercials as it finds them instead of waiting until the processing is complete.

I think I am having the same problem with my install of comskip as the other posters above. I make changes to the .ini file that is in the same directory as my comskip.exe, but the changes do not seem to take. I set it to create .edl files and to not create .txt and log files, but it still creates them anyway. I have three SageTv recording directories. Do I need to place a copy of the revised .ini in each of my three recording directories for comskip to work properly? If this is the case then why does the install of comskip monitor ask for a path to the .ini file?

No. But make sure in your comskip monitor ini file that you are calling out the correct comskip directory for your installation. Comskip monitor will use the comskip.exe from that named directory. If your making changes and using another direcdtory that is why you're having issues.
