Yet another Script to process Comercials
I have been a user of dvrmstoolbox for a some time and have decided that it was time to spin my own com delete processing script. I am building a lib of scripts that allow me to better control how I process files in MCE. This script and the two programs are all you need. This will cut the coms out of each comercial and push them back into the same dir. I like video redo becuase it retains its meta data from what I can tell. Becasue I am replacing the same file the image alos still shows up in mce.
I use a registered version of show analyzer, and video redo. Processing time seems to be low enough to run when playing or recording shows. I just run this script every 10 minutes on the dvrms dir. It creates a tracking file so it knows what has been processed. It works on vista, but I an not sure about xp. In vista if you are playing a file it will allow you to delete it but it will not release the resource until the file is done being played. The funny thing is that it does not throw an error when deleteing only when overwriting. So if you want test it on xp and tell me how it goes. This script will also not run when it is open in edit mode or in run mode. I wrote this function a while back when scheduler did not have the advance processing rules that vista does now.
