Comchecker A Comskip Script for Linux and OS X

Greetings TV junkies. I have recently made an update to my bash script used for executing Comskip under Wine in Linux and OS X.

Comskip scans H264 and Mpeg-2 files for commercial segments and outputs the information into a variety of formats for use in a number of PVR and encoding applications. Personally, I use SageTV under Linux and would recommend it whole-heartedly.

The improvements in this version of the script include the ability to change the number of total processes allowed to run based on file type. This is useful as H264 commercial detection takes more resources than Mpeg-2.

The comments in the script should provide enough guidance for usage.
