I was going to request same for txt file due this posting on Kodi Wiki:
“Note: The support for actual .EDL files is currently broken in Gotham 13.x at the least when applied to Recorded TV files. Comskip files (the .txt format only!) should be used as a workaround. Bug #15207 A workaround to get .EDL files working properly is to change the edl_skip_field in comskip.ini to 3.
Note: As of v17.x, the situation remains the same”
I’d also rather have the edl file (if your process would allow the above highlighted change to the ini).
Kodi naming convention in Movies and TV folders: Filename (of the corresponding mpg).txt (edl)
But main question is there a status on implementation of this option?
