Where to find EDL files?

Oct 3, 2015 at 3:41 PM
Hi, I'm trying to troubleshoot an issue I'm seeing COMSKIP and need to supply the EDL file. Are they deleted after conversion? I searched the entire PC, but I can't seem to find it.

My thread on Comskip forum:

Unless you manually changed comskip.ini, you're not yet getting EDL files at all. They are not a default action. You need to edit or add "output_edl=1" (no quotes). There's also an EDLX setting, but I don't know what purpose EDLX files serve. Neither comskip nor MCEBuddy has a specific configurable destination for EDL files that I found, and for me they are generated in the same location chosen for the conversion task. Under Expert Setting for the conversion task, also enable Skip Cutting Ads, which I think might be required to ensure such files remain afterward.
