I am running a compression script to compress my large AVI files to small mp4 files. The script look like this
#!/bin/bash FILEPATH="$1" COMPRESSIONPATH="$2" ffmpeg -i $FILEPATH -vcodec h264 -acodec mp2 $COMPRESSIONPATH sudo rm $FILEPATH curl -H "Content-Type:application/json" -X GET http://localhost:3000/clovis/api/led
Whenever I save a compressed video with a filename of compressedVideo#0.mp4 and open it; the newly compressed mp4 file contains footage of a very old video that I recorded and deleted about a week ago. Its almost as ffmpeg is cache that delete video and compressioning any filename with compressVideo#0.mp4 with the cached video. What might be the case here? How do i clear ffmpeg cache? Changing the filename fixes this issue but I wanted to use the filename compressedVideo#0.mp4. There are a few filenames that wont work actually; compressedVideo#0-4.mp4 all wont work. Depending on the filename used it loads the corresponding video that was created and delete long ago.
