[mythtv-users] Mythvideo: how to delete the seek table for a "videos" file?

I'm not sure how to delete it (other than manually going into the DB,
going to the filemarkup table, and deleting all records with a
matching filename...a process which I am NOT endorsing, just to be
clear). However, I'd like to mention that certain files (mpeg based,
as I understand it) cannot have their seektables built with
mythcomflag. Instead, you need to use mythtranscode:

mythtranscode --mpeg2 --buildindex --allkeys --showprogress --video
--infile /path/to/file

Try that and see if it works better. Note that, when it's done, it
will leave behind a 0 byte file with a .tmp extension (or something
like that).
