It was recommended by glen at glenb.net. I did a comparison with
mythcommflag and found that comskip detected more commercials. Also I
run it against videos. I don't know if mythcommflag is supposed to
support videos, but I cannot get it to work. It says filename is blank
and file is not found even when I supply the file name with the --file
option. The infrastructure in the rest of MythTV to support skipping in
videos is present, so I would expect it to work.
The comskip documentation is fair. I do not understand many of the
options. Some of the source code is a little strange.
