Hey guys,
Recorded sky sport via svideo on my HVR2200 in mediaportal. Produced a nice 4.5gb .ts file, which i ran through comskip. Comskip generated a txt file where the ad breaks start and finish.

And this is where im stuck. Theres heaps of articles on 'tuning comskip' and how to use it, but nowhere it actually says how you actually cut the ads out of the file. One guide said you run the txt file back into comskip (odd) which produces a _clean file. All this did was show a single broken grey frame of the video which was all pixelated.

So go ahead and call me stupid but how do i actually edit the video?

Lastly, i have mpeg4modifier to add the anamorphic flag to avi files. How do i add this flag to a .ts file without reencoding?

eXDee,

People seem to like H264TS cutter as one free app. Haven't tried it myself, though that is about to change, as I've just downloaded it.

Don't download the latest version from the author's site, as the link is broken. I just got it from here.

What i'm looking for is something that processes the file after comskip has generated a txt file. I've seen people using comskip, and as i said, call me stupid but i have no idea how you make it actually edit the video file.

I assume you have checked the Comskip website? It's been over two years since I used the app. but I would have thought their forum to have a number of threads on the topic?? it maybe another issue with the minimal support for the H.264/HE-AAC combo.

Thinking about it, I believe I used a programme called DVRMSToolbox in conjunction with MCE, which had an option to permanently remove the commercials. Can't remember the details, as I always used VirtualDubMod to edit my analogue captures of commercials before the advent of Freeview. But it won't work with FreeviewNZ *.ts files.

Out of curiosity, how long does it take to generate a Comskip file for an hour-long TV programme? And is that in HD?

Not sure if this will work for you. Here is a quote from a thread that might help.

"Once Comskip has detected the commercials and generated a .edl output file (listing once commercial per line) mencoder can be used to remove the commercials.

mencoder can take an input file, and output and an .edl file.
Please have a look at the mencoder help (google for mencoder man page) how to do this or study the batch file listed above."

Here is the thread.
