 I can extract "video stream" frame information using ffprobe
 % ffprobe -select_streams v -show_frames -print_format json
 1280x720_Shinkarenko-Gonzalez.mp4 > allframe-info.txt

 But if i further add "-skip_frame nokey" to above command

 % ffprobe -skip_frame nokey -select_streams v -show_frames -print_format
 json 1280x720_Shinkarenko-Gonzalez.mp4 > keyframe-info.txt

 It doesn't make any difference to the output. What I am trying to is
 extract keyframe info. I get this data from first command. But then the
 output file contains detail of all frames and I have to filter out text
 file. Moreover, I feel that using skip_frame will speed up the result I
