Fast Forward broken on .wtv files - XBOX 360 Extender

Dec 5, 2016 at 1:48 AM
It was my understanding MCEBuddy, was just that. A Media Center application to remove commercials. Whether I use comskip or showanalyser, the .wtv file that's created does not work correctly.
  1. Fast Forward does not work.
  2. Windows Explorer reports the length of the show as the original length, not the shorter length (perhaps related to #1 issue).
How can this be fixed? I find it hard to believe an application that's been around for so many years that's geared towards removing commercials for Windows Media Center .wtv files... can't do it properly. After spending over a dozen hours troubleshooting this, I am ready to give up. It's a bit irritating after upgrading comskip to donated version in hopes this would be resolved.

It's a known issue that documented under known issue. WTV is a closed proprietary format so it's upto the best that the devs have at ffmpeg have been able to reverse engineer the format.
