I'm passing the arguments %%FILE%% %%CHANNEL%% to PostProcessing.bat which I modified to only process the video file if the recording was made on specified channels. The batch file is also using UNC paths to launch comskip.exe.
...see my other post, referring to a bug-report in the comskip forum.
AFAI understood comskip will work, but only applying default settings, because it will disregard the .ini file when given UNC-style paths to the .ts video.

Do you have a .ini per channel or one global setting for all?

I see. I'm using one comskip.ini for all channels so I guess I wouldn't notice this issue.

Until it's solved, perhaps you could do a workaround by copying the channel specific ini file before starting comskip in the batch script. Something like this:

Code: Select all

if %2 == "Eurosport" goto Eurosport
if %2 == "Kanal 5" goto Kanal5
goto eof
:Eurosport
copy /y eurosport.ini comskip.ini
goto end
:Kanal5
copy /y kanal5.ini comskip.ini
goto end
:end
"\\Server\comskip\comskip.exe" %1
:eof
