"Just wanted to let you all know that I wish I had donated earlier. Joining your Early Access Program is a more than reasonable cost for what you're offering. The latest version of MCE Buddy and Comskip are super fast and so much more accurate. Having an evening's television show(s) converted, all the commercials removed and ready to be put onto my iPad for the train commute to work in the morning is never a problem now. With the "free" version of the software, while still a solid product, sometimes the conversion was still going on the next morning and I would have to wait until the next day to watch. With your latest, 50% faster, version the conversion never goes past 2 am for a night with several TV programs I record with Windows Media Center. Thank you to everyone who worked on the project and contributed."
