View Full Version : "Intelligent" QSF handling

Hi old friend!
The guy who ensures you always have something to do here. I think I mentioned this before, but you didn't reply. Would you consider an "intelligent" QSF? If QSF has failed/stalled for the configurable number of times, skip QSF and go direct to Ad Scan?

If QSF fails, you probably won't get further with performing an AD scan.

Actually I know for a fact that I will - I have had QSF failing many times in the past, where AdDetective worked just fine. Only today I've processed 7 files that would not go through QSF, but they go just fine through AdDetective.
I have posted about this issue in both the VAP and VRD forums in the past.

I'm very reluctant to complicate VAP's logic to work around something that shouldn't be happening to begin with. (VRD shouldn't be failing to QSF ANY input file that is good enough to get through AdScan.) As you mentioned this problem is being worked in another thread -- I'm going to assume it soon will be resolved by VRD.
I'm looking forward to what I prefer to call "Intelligent QSF", which is to take into account the input file's container and codec and the VRD Output Profile info discussed in this post:
To ensure that QSF's are always done in a way that does not require recoding when possible..

I sympathise with not wanting to do something because of something external. But I first mentioned this problem in the VRD forum a long, long time ago. As far as I recall, it wasn't crashing like it is now. The reason wasn't found and the thread abandoned. Even if the current crashing problem is resolved, no program is ever perfect, and there is no guarantee something similar will not happen again. I'm looking for an automatic solution that takes care of it all without daily manual intervention to get it to work. In a way, this is not much different from the retry functionality on stalled files, where it couldn't be explained why rerunning the same file a second time worked. But the automatic retry has helped me a lot. Automatic skipping of QSF would too, for the same reasons.
I'm also looking forward to the "Intelligent QSF"!! :D I realize it's going to mean a lot of work for you...
