VideoCache Files

I made an interesting discovery. There is a directory which contains mp4 files showing the complete video for each flight (720p). If there is a video link disconnect, one MP4 file is closed and another is started.
The file name is the Unix epoch time in ms. To get the creation time of the file divide the file name by 1000 (just drop the last three digits), then use a converter.

Epoch Converter - Unix Timestamp Converter

For example, I have a file named 1477159408236.mp4. Drop the last three digits to get 1477159408 and enter this number into the field next to "Timestamp to Human Date". Click the button to get the following:

GMT: Sat, 22 Oct 2016 18:03:28 GMT
Your time zone: 10/22/2016, 1:03:28 PM GMT-5:00 DST​

The modification time for the file is 10/22 1:11pm. The video is 7:47 or 467 seconds.

I don't have any VideoCache files older than 10/22, so I think this is a new feature of the Starlink 2.0.1.17.

It aggravated the video drops. Ideally it should be a user option.
