I get a "File is being used by another Process" error with any profile that calls the 'Cut Commercials out of DVRMS' addin (Durrant.Plugins.cutcommercialsoutofdvrms).
The process (almost) successfully splices the show, but it never fully completes. This error happens after 100% but before the completion.
Consequently the dvrms file is either
1. doesn't generate since the profile is cancelled (due to the error)
2. If I check the 'continue on fail box' on the cutdvrms task - then the resulting file is not actually complete. It will play, and it does have the commercials removed, but the filename has a registry key-like key string of numbers and letters after it. And I can't run any other processes on it, (I have tried to add a rename on the profile log below, but because it can't find the previous output file as the input file', so that didn't work)
The last time I see this error being discussed was like 5 years ago, and apparently a .dll was changed and so that shouldn't be the problem anymore.
I saw another suggestion about throttle settings. I have tried to change these but I don't really understand if I'm changing that correctly. Instead of 'use default' I put 60 and 60 in the wait and poll times, but it didn't help the error.
I've also seen people mention adding a delay. But if I add a delay to process, it just adds the delay before it starts the cutdvrms task. (I think it needs a delay between the 100% step and when it goes to remove that registry key string deal from the end of the file name. I don't know if it's possible to add a delay for that in somewhere).
Oh and I've also double checked that file watcher is not running or showanalyzer's file service. So that is not the problem
Here is my most recent log, with the 'continue on fail' and save output settings checked, the resultant file is: Adventures in Babysitting5fb8a770-f809-4e9e-bc45-37bc3dd9ccd2.dvr-ms
(And just fyi the example here is not a movie. It's tv show; not sure if that's a factor or not just mentioning it)
Can anyone give me an idea of what I might try to get this working? Thanks!
