Well, I let MCEBuddy do it's work on media I'm going to watch and delete. I have my Comskip*ini file set to be VERY forgiving, leaving ads in favor of hosing down programming in error.gtb wrote: ↑Wed May 22, 2019 7:00 amThe solution (by the big players) that works reasonably well uses various combinations of heuristics, AI, and human validation to create an accurate skip-list for the network feeds (usually available a few hours after broadcast). In other words, spending real money and providing a paid service (or value add to an existing service to keep you as a subscriber). There has been, from time to time, considerations to crowd-source such information, but they have tended to fall apart rather quickly when the real world complexity of such a general solution was considered.
If something is to be added permanently to the Plexiverse, VideoReDo creates frame accurate editing with a few minutes of human intervention.
If SD wants to pay 'real money' for the services that others may provide in the "Ad Eradication Industry" that would be a direct reversal of history - and unlikely, IMO. If SD wants to throw together a Cheap and Dirty Comskip hack it WILL be nothing but trouble. Mom and Pop User don't care why it doesn't work right - they just want it to work right - and it'll never work right.
