FFmpeg: Remove Duplicate Frames with mpdecimate while Retaining Audio

Run mpdecimate Filter on Video (mp4 output)
ffmpeg -i original_file.mp4 -vf mpdecimate -vsync vfr -acodec copy mpdecimated.mp4
Run mpdecimate Filter on Video (mov output)*
ffmpeg -i original_file.mp4 -vf mpdecimate -vsync vfr -acodec copy mpdecimated.mov

* This seems to work better with Final Cut Pro
