I like VidroRedo, but it's $50. I don't know that removing commercials is really worth $50. Are there any free programs? BTW, I prefer the term frugal to cheap.
I used to use TVHarmony Autopilot but it doesn't seem to work well with Vista (which I have now) and I can't get in contact with the developer. It squishes my videos and the comskip feature keeps crapping out on me while processing the shows.
Support Dan and his family: VideoRedo is definitely worth the $50!!!
Nice work, that program rocks. I purchased my copy , no wait scratch that, the company that i work for paid for my copy:

Yup, VideoReDo, the way to go. I use it in conjunction with TiVo, MCE, Zen and PSP. Manual Mode only, since the 'Ad Detective' occasionally misses the start point coming out of a commercial. Great for Marathons or Mini Series, commercial free to DVD.
okay so I finally made "the switch" from PC to mac, but now I'm finding my favorit editing tools are not available. First off just to "transfer" video I had to purchase Roxio. For the PC the software was free. Roxio WILL NOT let you do any editing to the video at all. I had purchased video redo for my PC, but I don't see there is a version for mac. Is there anything similiar for mac? Or do I now need to go back to my PC?
I'm just sort of curious-why would you want to remove commercials from something you're only going to watch once? It seems like a lot of hastle to mess with. (Even for stuff I'm archiving I might leave commercials just since they end up pretty interesting to see in 10 or 20 years!)
well I'm trying to figure out how to automate directshow dump, comskip and then something to cut out the commercials... anyone have a step by step? I've got about 30GB of Walker Texas Ranger I need to cut down to size
VideoReDo also has an automatic commercial detection feature. It's not automated enough to allow you point it a an entire folder of videos and have it do it all automatically. But you can load a video, scan for the commercials, verify the cuts and output an edited video in 3-5 minutes so it wouldn't take too long.
