I think that is what I suggested in post #457, i.e.:Another idea would be to make all the scene change markers into chapters rather than just the start and end of detected ad blocks. That would make the issues I saw with the first file managable. Is that possible?
Assuming we're talking about the same thing, I will make the mod.Another approach would be to use the scene markers generated by Ad Detective, instead of cut start/end points. Try running Ad Detective manually on one of your .mp4 files. The scene markers are the red lines. In my limited experience, it is usually very good at finding the scene changes where commercials start and end -- much better than at deciding whether what's between scene markers is a commercial.
You're probably already aware of the VMR9 video driver issue.It might be awhile before I can do my testing. VRD started crashing and a reinstall didn't fix the problem. BTV also started crashing although the problem went away when I switched to software rendering which would seem to point a finger at a problem with my video/DirectX environment. Reinstalling the video driver didn't resolve the problem either so it looks like I'm going to be spending my time trying to fix this problem rather than doing much more fun VRD/VAP stuff.
