perfect_commercial_detection.diff paches are very welcome. :)

I think that the flagger always puts in an ending mark.  The flagger
probably just thought the last couple minutes were commercial for
whatever reason.

The OP didn't say whether this was user-initiated or auto-skip,
but I think the situation could be resolved by just modifying a couple
'if' statements in those two sections of code.  Adding a piece of code
to say 'don't skip if the end marker is at the end of the recording' should
be fairly easy.

Again, patches welcome.  I think the places to look are around line 5426
and 5575 in NuppelVideoPlayer.cpp.
