Command line Quick Stream Fix

Is there any way of running QSF from a command line? I want to automate it with DVRMSToolbox. Also can I select which soundtrack I want to end up in the fixed file?
The end workflow is
1)Record
2)QSF
3)Comskip with a per channel settings file
4)Move the result off the SSD onto a Hard Drive
I'm guessing VRD Autoprocessor may not be able to do the comskip with a per channel settings file?

No command line, but there is a COM interface. All the info about the COM interface is in the help file.

Dan,
thanks for the reply, is there any chance that you can humour me with what options I need to add to cscript vp.vbs please to take in a H264 WTV file and do a QSF on it?
The COM interface from the help file seems very powerful however it also seems very difficult to find out what options I need to add if I just use the vp.vbs file with a couple of options.

Hmmm... looks like the docs are a bit out of date so not all the functions are listed.

First call FileOpenBatch to open the file, this will open it in QSF mode.

Next call FileSaveProfile with the output file path and the name of the profile you want to use. (in this case it would be "H.264 WTV")

Not to stifle your ingenuity, but dl has added many features requested us VRD users. I'm sure dl will find this thread but to be sure, post your question on the VAP sub-forum.

Thanks for the reply.
I'm only running VRD on the SD channels to clean up the timeline before Comskip. On the HD channels I don't seem to have the problem so I run Comskip with no prior processing. For some strange reason it's only the SD channels that give me skip forward and back problems. I've now got it to work so I'll post my solution tomorrow when I'm back at my PC.

My solution with DVRMSToolbox was to use "Durrant.Plugins.MetadataWait" set to "WM/WMRVEndTime" +2 this delays kicking anything off until the files endtime +2 minutes as set to zero it was starting slightly early.
I then set the "OutputFile" Variable to be the same as the input file but in a different folder, then finally I invoked
"Durrant.Plugins.RunExternal" with "c:\Windows\System32\cscript.exe" as the process name and "//nologo "C:\Program Files\VideoReDoTVSuite4\vp.vbs" "%InputFile%" "%OutputFile%" "/p:H.264 WTV" /q" as the parameters.
This creates me a quickstream file of the original silently before returning control to DVRMSToolbox which I use to invoke comskip and cleanup
Thanks Dan203 for the tips, it enabled me to look back on previous work and adapt it.
Should it screw up I'll look at the autoprocessor again.
