    After some serious work on the MPEG decoder I think I have solved many of the audio/video synchronisation and timeline problems.
    Some serious MPEG Transport Stream and DVR-MS testing could further improve Comskip so keep sending me your feedback.



    From the change log

    Changes in 0.79.32
    - Added the BTV Smartskip output format, set output_btv=1 in the comskip.ini file to enable
    - Bug solved: AC3 sound volume is too high causing missing of black frames
    - Bug solved: Recording with 3/2 pull down has wrong frame numbers leading to incorrect cut points
    - Bug solved: The volume_slip default value is too low
    - Added parameter in ini file: ms_audio_delay=5 set to the number of frames audio lags video in dvr-ms files. Default value of 5 should be OK for most recordings.

    Erik, I just wanted to say thanks for all the hard work you are doing with Comskip. I know someday that comskip will be an integrated part of MP, and I look forward to that day. Thanks for coming over here and supporting MP! We really do appreciate it.

    I hope people that want this to work are supplying Erik with NTSC dvr-ms recording as he has asked for in this post.

    made an error during building.
    If your comskip.exe does not do anything but exit, download build 32 again.

    Hi there, thanks for your work on this i hope it becomes a must have tool before long. I'd like to help with testing on dvr-ms and have set up the various files you instruct to download. Am i right in thinkin that at this stage comskip will detect ads in DVR-ms files but the comclean will not remove them (it works with mpg). Is there something i could use to take the information from comskip scan of a dvr-ms files and attempt to remove the ads. I'm aiming to have this as automated as possible.

    Cheers
    m

    Currently comclean will not delete the commercials, but I will make soon a version of comclean that takes the demuxed output of comskip and creates a clean mpeg file.

    First of all, I would like to thank Erik for all of his work. Secondly, I have a few questions:

    Can erik use some ATSC DVR-MS files for testing?

    What is the framerate I should use for ATSC files and comskip?

    No need for ATSC dvr-ms files unless you find one that does not work.

    Comskip can work with 29.97 fps, 25 fps and 59.94 fps.
    It will autodetect from the recording.
