I am running a compression script to compress my large AVI files to small mp4 files. The script look like this:
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. It's almost as
ffmpeg is cache that delete video and compressing 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 won't work actually;
compressedVideo#0-4.mp4 all won't work. Depending on the filename used it loads the corresponding video that was created and delete long ago.
