PLEX cannot play files processed by MCEBuddy


I'm using MCEBuddy 2.4 Release 1. I have it setup to watch the folder where Windows Media Center sends my recorded television. I have a setting of WTV Unprocessed using Comskip for the add remover. I also use PLEX with Roku, Chromecast and Nexus Player. I recently setup PLex to create media index files which provide thumbnails for fast forward and rewind.

All MCEBuddy processed shows started recently giving me an error when trying to play them with PLEX, error says "There was a problem playing this video". Happens in every PLEX device, Roku, Chromecast and Nexus Player. Same error happens when trying to play the file on the PLEX server. The MCEBuddy processed shows WTV files play fine in Windows Media Center but Plex gives me the mentioned error. The original unprocessed by MCEBuddy file plays fine on PLEX but the PLEX media index files are truncated, meaning that they stop halfway the show's length.

My solution was to stop using MCEBuddy since all processed shows I cannot see on my TV using PLEX.
I'm thinking there might be a conflict between the processes of MCEBuddy removing commercials and PLEX creating the media index files.

Has anyone else using PLEX media index files with MCEBuddy Comskip encountered this error and if so how do you solve it.
