#11614 closed Bug Report - General (Works for me)

mythtranscode --honorcutlist Seems to Have Stopped Working

Reported by: ian@… Owned by: stuartm
Priority: major Milestone: 0.26.2
Component: MythTV - General Version: 0.26-fixes
Severity: medium Keywords: mythtranscode cutlist
Cc: Ticket locked: no


Originally posted in users, but got no response. If it's reproducible I think it's a bug.

For several years I have been cutting out commercial in a script using:

/usr/bin/mythtranscode --showprogress --honorcutlist --mpeg2 --infile /media/recordings/mythtv/1019_20130617075700.mpg -o /media/recordings/mythtv/1019_20130617075700.mpg.tmp

The file has a valid cutlist, but no sections of video are removed. This is happening with all files I am transcoding. There are no errors reported when I run the command manually.

Log isn't very informative:

This is not a log file. Since mythtranscode, when run interactively, outputs information (such as progress reporting) to stdout, you don't get logging to stdout when running mythtranscode interactively. You need to specify --logpath /path/to/directory on the command line and cannot get log output with a redirect.

I have created a log file, but its about 7MByte compressed and Trac will only let me upload files of 2MByte. I can upload it to my web server and provide url for you to download it if that's OK.

We don't need a -v all log, at least not to begin with. -v general,file will do for now.

Can you please update to the latest 0.26-fixes and try again? If it doesn't work then another log would be appreciated. I've backported a fix for a related issue from 0.27-dev, looking closer it seems like this would also permit the use of the cutlist for recordings when --infile is used.

It's difficult to see how cutlists ever worked with mythtranscode used manually from the command line with --infile instead of --chanid/--starttime, but maybe the breakage occurred when the new command line parsing stuff was added a year or two ago.
