Comment (by krs_vital):

 let me explain

 if ffmpeg works for a long time sengents number will to long


 after restart folder dont erase. therefor segments from seg5550.ts  to
 seg5555.ts will not be deleted, then segments start from seg0.ts, the next
 restart will, for example, at the seg3333.ts, therefor the segments
 seg3328.ts ... seg3333.ts will not be erased and so on...

 if parallel streams are too much, then the memory may fill up with
 unnecessary segments and then run out

 so, looping segments names (for example from seg0 to seg9) solves all the
 problem with freeing up memory...and i dont to write advanced scripts to
 control it.
