Two Step Conversion (Save Comskip Info?)

Aug 8, 2015 at 7:04 PM

I would like to have MCEBuddy complete two conversion,
1) Just remove commercials (comskip, TS in / out). There is a profile for this, no issue.
2) Then, take the cleaned version and convert to MP4

But for 2), I'd like to not run comskip again - save time and HDD wear. Is there a way to do this?

Actually, this evolves a bit into a slightly different question ... :-). It seems that NextPVR will use the comskip (EDL) information, and it works very nicely. That said, when I then go to create my MP4 file ... can MCEBuddy use the EDL data that is already present (and not re-generate it all over again)?

yes read the sticky threads. it takes the EDL file if present
Also to answer your previous question, use daisy chaining of conversion tasks (search the forum)

Excellent, thanks!

I admit - I looked, but didn't think to check for "daisy chaining". My fault ... :(

Yep, just ran a conversion, and it used the local EDL info - awesome!
