Server API - Configuring Watch Folders

Last Updated: Dec 16, 2014 03:23PM PST
You configure watch folders just like a compression job. Like a compression job, a watch folder has a source - in this case a file folder or location visible to squeeze server, one or more destinations- where squeeze server will publish the output files, one or more presets that tell squeeze server how to transcode the media files, and a queue that squeeze server will use to place jobs it creates from the watch folders.

Unlike jobs, watch folders do not need a preset assigned. Watch folders will use any presets the server finds in the watch folder. This makes it very easy to change your encoding options without having to do anything other than copy a file. Watch folders still support the same preset options as the job-- getting presets from the
library, the Internet, or with the preset data attached.
