Delete source file after successful convertion

Postby Bednarus3 » Fri Nov 04, 2016 1:44 pm

It would be very useful option that delete source file after successful conversion. At the moment I use script that runs two commands. First one is "ffmpeg" second "rm" for each file in directory. Even if conversion goes wrong, script will remove source file anyway.

I highly doubt this will be added. Consider using the "-xerror" option, parsing exit codes, then using `rm`.
Get an answer more quickly by providing your actual ffmpeg command and the complete console output. Use the code button to format your command and output or your question will be ignored.
