    VideoRedo and .ts commercial removal causing bad timeline and unviewable video

    I have scripts setup to use comskip to mark commercials after recording, then use VideoRedo to edit mark points and strip/clean commercials.

    As I like to use the "Recordings" view to stream/watch these videos on clients, I want to leave them as .ts files. My problem is, after cutting commercials with VideoRedo, the .ts files will not play in NPVR, they work fine with VLC though.

    I noticed the timeline on the cleaned files were wrong, so I used the "QuickStream Fix" option in VideoRedo and the files were playable in NPVR.

    My question is, does anyone have a similar process, and if so, are there settings within VideoRedo that can be updated so the "QuickStream Fix" step does not have to be run, i.e. the 'clean' step produces a file in the 'GOOD' format below.

    When I compare the file attributes of the Bad and Good files I get the following:

    BAD - output of 'Clean' commercial via VideoRedo step:

    I will also post this question on VideoRedo forum, but at the moment, the forum registration is not working for me....
    Any info appreciated...

    I have never used it but after an google search I think you might be incorrectly using /t1 in your .vbs script and not /t4

    Wow, so simple, but for some reason so elusive to me Thank you, works perfectly now!

    Just to satisfy my curiosity, what google search did you perform?

    I saw you were incorrectly outputting mpeg-ps and searched

    videoredo .ts command line

    leading to this http://forum.team-mediaportal.com/th...mpc-vlc.38607/ and #6 was clear

    Yep, made the same mistake, viewed the documentation in the script, /t4 was not listed.

    Thanks again!
