so you can check access time/creation time, it should change if the file is written.

I would think that write date/time would work, but there's also another possibility to consider - file size. You can use plain old "ls" or "find" to list the relevant files, along with their file size. Then, do the same thing a few seconds later and compare the file sizes (only utilize the lines which match).

If the file sizes match, then the transfer has been completed. If not, the file may still be in the middle of transfer, so ignore it for now.

Finally I got workaround for my problem. Single video clip is less than 10MB in size. So time of transsmision of sigle file is about 2-3 min max. Because of that I add in find command, modification time as argument. I hope it resolve my problem. All problems are because of limited functionality of Synology Linux. Se below:

Code:
find ./ -type f -mmin +10 -name "*.dav" -exec ffmpeg -y -i {} -vcodec copy -movflags +faststart {}.avi \;
