Adobe FMS: how to change default media location

Hi X-perts,

I need to change the default location of VOD media files from /opt/adobe/fms/applications/vod/media.

what I did:

1. Created a dir test under default "media" dir
2. Placed my f4v files inside "test" dir
3. Modified applications.xml as follows:

<Application>

<StreamManager>

<VirtualDirectory>

      <!-- Specifies application specific virtual directory mapping for recorded streams.   -->

<Streams>/;${VOD_COMMON_DIR}</Streams>
<Streams>/;${VOD_DIR}</Streams>
<Streams>/;<FMS Installed Directory>\applications\vod\media\test</Streams>
</VirtualDirectory>

4. Use the following smil file

<smil>
    <head>
        <meta base="rtmp:/vod/" />
    </head>
    <body>
      <switch>
            <video src="mp4:file_1_300.f4v" system-bitrate="300000"/>
            <video src="mp4:file_1_500.f4v" system-bitrate="500000"/>
            <video src="mp4:file_1_700.f4v" system-bitrate="700000"/>
            <video src="mp4:filel_1_1000.f4v" system-bitrate="1000000"/>
            <video src="mp4:file_1_1500.f4v" system-bitrate="1500000"/>
        </switch>
    </body>
</smil>

It doesn't work. it works only, if I place f4v files inside "media" dir directly.

What am I missing here?

Thanks

Try including the following tag...
<streamManager>
   <StorageDir>C:\myEnormousVideoCollection\</StorageDir>

Hopefully that will do the trick.

Cheers
