Odd that I’ve been getting random Comskip Failure messages, about 50% of the files. When I re-run them, a smaller set have and error and so on. Looking in the file, it appears to me that Comskip is finishing, but not recognizing it. Log file in Upload is named “The Big Bang Theory_TBSHD_2015_12_05_21_30_02.wtv-Convert Shows to MP4-2015-12-06T16-04-14.4062346-08-00.log.zip” --> Starting conversion - DEBUG MESSAGES INFORMATION> --> Windows OS Version -> Microsoft Windows NT 10.0.10586.0 (WIN_10_2016_SERVER, Professional) INFORMATION> --> Windows Platform -> 64 Bit INFORMATION> --> MCEBuddy Build Platform -> 64 Bit INFORMATION> --> MCEBuddy Build Version : 2.4.3.0 INFORMATION> --> MCEBuddy Build Date : 12/05/2015 02:07:10 INFORMATION> --> MCEBuddy Running as Service : True …. …. 2015-12-06T16:25:08 MCEBuddy.AppWrapper.Comskip --> 0:29:45 - 55718 frames in 892.83 sec(62.41 fps), 1.00 sec(53.00 fps), 99% 2015-12-06T16:25:10 MCEBuddy.AppWrapper.Comskip --> 0:29:49 - 55833 frames in 894.82 sec(62.40 fps), 2.00 sec(57.50 fps), 99% 2015-12-06T16:25:42 MCEBuddy.AppWrapper.Comskip --> 55833 frames decoded in 926.55 seconds (60.26 fps) ERROR> --> No response from process for 300 seconds, process likely hung - killing it ERROR> --> Process hung, killing process WARNING> 2015-12-06T16:30:44 MCEBuddy.CommercialScan.Scanner --> Comskip failed ERROR> 2015-12-06T16:30:44 MCEBuddy.Engine.ConversionJob --> Comskip failed INFORMATION> 2015-12-06T16:30:44 MCEBuddy.Engine.ConversionJob --> --> Performance Metrics for the Current Conversion --> --> Source video duration (hh:mm:ss) -> 00:29:54 --> Source video codec -> mpeg2video --> Source video height -> 1080 --> Source video width -> 1920 --> Pre-conversion video duration (hh:mm:ss) -> 00:29:49 --> --> <Start At Date/Time> <Duration (hh:mm:ss)> <Activity> --> <12/06/2015 16:04:20> <00:00:00> <Running custom commands> --> <12/06/2015 16:04:20> <00:00:21> <Getting show information and banner from Internet sources> --> <12/06/2015 16:04:41> <00:00:00> <Running custom commands> --> <12/06/2015 16:04:41> <00:00:18> <Checking for disk space> --> <12/06/2015 16:04:59> <00:04:09> <Remuxing recording> --> <12/06/2015 16:09:09> <00:00:38> <Analyzing video information> --> <12/06/2015 16:09:47> <00:00:16> <Trimming video recording> --> <12/06/2015 16:10:04> <00:20:39> <Comskip advertisement scan> --> INFORMATION> --> Total time taken by conversion (hh:mm:ss) -> 00:26:24

Try using today's build of MCEBuddy, we updated Comskip to version 0.81.089 which is reportedly more stable.
If you're using the donator version of comskip, upgrade it to 089 as well and then try it.

Ok, I’ll update… note here is the same file reconverted with no problems:

2015-12-06T18:46:38 MCEBuddy.AppWrapper.Comskip --> 0:29:49 - 55833 frames in 769.72 sec(72.54 fps), 2.42 sec(8.68 fps), 99%

2015-12-06T18:47:02 MCEBuddy.AppWrapper.Comskip --> 55833 frames decoded in 794.25 seconds (70.30 fps)

2015-12-06T18:50:10 MCEBuddy.AppWrapper.Comskip --> The commandline used was:

2015-12-06T18:50:10 MCEBuddy.AppWrapper.Comskip --> "C:\Program Files\MCEBuddy2x\comskip\comskip.exe" "--ini=C:\Program Files\MCEBuddy2x\comskip\comskip.ini" --output=I:\MCEWorkFolders\ComskipShowTmp\working3 "I:\MCEWorkFolders\ComskipShowTmp\working3\The Big Bang Theory_TBSHD_2015_12_05_21_30_02.ts"

2015-12-06T18:50:10 MCEBuddy.AppWrapper.Comskip --> Setting ini file to C:\Program Files\MCEBuddy2x\comskip\comskip.ini as per commandline

2015-12-06T18:50:10 MCEBuddy.AppWrapper.Comskip --> Using C:\Program Files\MCEBuddy2x\comskip\comskip.ini for initiation values.

2015-12-06T18:50:10 MCEBuddy.AppWrapper.Comskip --> Commercials were found.

I had downloaded 0.81.089 already, so I simply swapped that out and it has resolved the issue.

As you surmised, Comskip was not exiting after the successful processing of the file.
