    I have made a small utility call HideRun.exe that gets two parameters
    The first is the full path to the comskip executable
    The second is the full path to the file to processed.

    HideRun "c:\comskip\comskip.exe" "c:\video\recordings\news.mpg"

    The double quotes are only needed when the arguments contains spaces.

    HideRun will execute comskip WITHOUT ANY VISIBLE FEEDBACK
    If the parameters are wrong HideRun will crash in an unpredicted way.

    HideRun.exe can be downloaded from my server.
    It requires .net

    This sounds sweet. I have another dos program that I run, and the only way I have found to hid it is to use the user NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM. For whatever reason this hides the dos window for me and the program I am using.

    I have been reading your posts. It looks like we can now set up something in the INI that scans shows in real time? Is there any possible way you could write up a little HOW to on how to do this? Can it be done within the current version of MP? I would love to test it out. I am hoping that something could be added to MP to allow it to view these text files comskip is creating and jump the commercials when it needs too. It looks like with all the progress you are making... this could be very soon.
