INTRO SKIP PLUGIN

 

INTROSKIP.png.75fc2008ad90769013e6bbae6edaac38.png

Current Status - Beta Release - Awaiting MB Admin to merge this into the Core

ADVISORY: It is advisable to test these DEV/Beta releases on a small test library with a few TV shows that have a good amount of content. About 300-500 episodes.

DISCLAIMER: The following has been analysed &  tested this now: If your audio varies(pitch & loudness) between episodes in a season, the plugin will have difficulty in detection. There is nothing we can do about it, we tried changing the sensitivity of the detection and it yields weird results.

THANKS: @chef @samuelqwe @rbjtech @Cheesegeezer for all their hardwork to get this where it is today, especially chef and Sam who did all the hard work with the Fingerprinting and Detection methods.  Also to the all the testers for putting up with us.  

FFMPEG VERSION - Current Release version of Emby Server NOT contain the correct ffmpeg version that facilitates Chromaprint. You will either have to upgrade to the latest beta version 4.7.0.11 minimum or copy over the FFmpeg Binaries from a beta version to your Release version.

REMOVING BAD/INCORRECT CHAPTERS

This only works with mkv video containers.

THE WHY

There are 2 scenerios in Emby for creating the chapters...

  1. There are no chapters inside the container - Emby will create default chapters at 5 minute intervals
  2. The ARE chapters written(embedded) into the mkv video container at the time of creation - Emby will automatically use the embedded chapters - regardless of how many there are in there.

So why would we need to remove the bad chapters.  Well.... if the video container only has 1 or 2 chapters embedded and we run the chapter Task for IntroSkip, sometimes, if the intro start time falls beyond where the last chapter ends, we can't insert the Title Sequence chapter Marker.  

It's entirely upto the user if they want to remove the chapters embedded in the mkv container as this is a permanent fixture, however by removing them you will allow emby to use scenario 1 above and have the title sequence chapter marker inserted.

THE HOW

After the Chapter Task has been run, Go to the "Chapters" Section of the UI and you may have a list of problematic chapters. The # of Chapters Column will be useful as you can see how many chapters are being used. If the count is Zero then it is likely that the Runtime is less than 5 mins, however a title sequence is still present. You can also click on the Logo image to take you directly to the episode in question to do some self analysis.

To remove the non-useful embedded chapters You will need to install MkvToolNix

After installation, Run MKVToolNix and Select the chapter Editor.  Then drag and drop your episode.mkv in the window.

Your chapters are now loaded into the Chapter editor.

Select the Edition Entry and then Right Click and Choose the Remove option shown below.

Then Go to ChapterEditor top menu and save (this will overwrite the container immediately) - as easy as that, the refresh metadata for the show/season/episode and run the chapter task ..... Boom you're done

I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong, put I copied the dll to the correct folder as listed above.  Restarted Emby Server, cleared browser cache and everything, but I have nothing for IntroSkip under Scheduled Tasks.  What am I doing wrong?
