Deleting .flv Files - Macromedia Flash Flashcom

Hey I'm writing a ColdFusion application that will handle a number of streaming formats (flv, wmv, mov, rm) and part of the application will allow users to upload their own videos to stream, manage them and delete them if required. I've run into a problem with my 'flv' files. If the file has been uploaded but NOT streamed yet, I can delete it fine. If it HAS been streamed, coldfusion outputs the error: ColdFusion could not delete the file "filelocation" for an unknown reason. I also cannot delete the file via FTP. I imagine it is related to the problem ...

    Default Deleting .flv Files

    Hey

    I'm writing a ColdFusion application that will handle a number of streaming
    formats (flv, wmv, mov, rm) and part of the application will allow users to
    upload their own videos to stream, manage them and delete them if required.
    I've run into a problem with my 'flv' files.

    If the file has been uploaded but NOT streamed yet, I can delete it fine. If
    it HAS been streamed, coldfusion outputs the error: ColdFusion could not delete
    the file "filelocation" for an unknown reason. I also cannot delete the file
    via FTP. I imagine it is related to the problem faced

    Anyone got any ideas?

    Sounds like the streaming code may not be releasing all resources attached to
    the file. I'm not familiar with Cold Fusion but are you sure you are releasing
    the stream (via close or similar call) after playing. This is a common omission
    in other programming languages.
