Built-in locations in Compressor
Use the following built-in locations in Compressor, available in the Locations pane, to specify the save location of a transcoded file.
Save the transcoded file to the user’s desktop.
Save the transcoded file to the user’s Movies folder.
Save the transcoded file to the same location as the source media file.
You can also create a custom location, either by duplicating an existing location or by creating a new location. When you create a custom location, you can also specify a filename format for transcoded files. See Work with locations in Compressor.
