How to define different storage folder for presets and settings?

Post by pstein » Tue Feb 19, 2019 8:55 pm

As far as I can see MC stores all presets and settings in the Windows user folder.

is there a way to store it in another directory (e.g. D:\tools\video\Mediacoder\mysettings\)

How can I define this inside MC?

Maybe I can pass the new customized preferences location as a cmdline parameter like:

Mediacoder.exe -useprefs="D:\tools\video\Mediacoder\mysettings\"

or even better as a relative path:

Mediacoder.exe -useprefs=.\mysettings\

If this is currently not possible:
Can this option be added in the next release?

Thank you
Peter
