[FFmpeg-user] What to do with ts files

Hello all,
Have a question about ts files that are generated when I convert a live 
stream to hls. As the stream plays and is converted by ffmpeg into ts 
files then brought together in to m3u8 the number of ts files grows. If 
the live stream plays for several hours would it be wise to have a 
script of some type check for the oldest (say 3) ts files every so often 
and delete them or will this screw up the m3u8 file?

Thanks for any advice
Todd Poole
