2 questions regarding commercial skipping:
Just how much CPU power does it take to use this feature? What extra work does the computer have to do for this?
If I enable commercial skipping, does anything other than Channels use it? Or can I export videos without commercials to another folder where I can watch them without commercials with another viewing program?
There's a bit of background to #1 that may help. I'm currently using a rather old Mac Mini for Channels and a few other things. I'd like to buy a small form computer, maybe ITX or close to that, and use it for Channels and as a file server for video, audio, and image files. I'd rather be able to put money into more storage space than in trying to max out a CPU. Sure, I don't want to go so cheap on CPU specs that the system has trouble working as a file server and recording videos for Channels (and commercial skipping), but I also don't want to go over the top on power.
