    This is your transcoding folder. It contains all the transcoded files that you have streamed to your devices. When you stream a video, music file, or photo to your device and that file is not compatible with the device's supported formats, then Mezzmo will auto transcode the file for you and then stream it to your device so that you can play it immediately. The transcoded file is stored in your transcoding folder so that the next time you try to play the original file, then Mezzmo will simply stream the already transcoded file. Transcoding can take significant CPU, memory and time - esp. for 1080p HD movies.

    You can maintain the location and size of the transcoding folder in the Transcoding Settings dialog in Mezzmo. This dialog lets you set the location of the folder on your computer and the maximum size of the folder (by default, it is 120GB). When the maximum size is reached, then Mezzmo will auto-delete older transcoded files. Using this dialog, you can also delete all your transcoded files if you wish. If you do delete all your transcoded files, then remember that Mezzmo may need to transcode some of your files the next time you play them.
