I think that only allows you to specify "location for temporary  
files", the actual video directory is specified someplace else, I  
can't recall exactly but I *think* it was in the backend specs.

I made the discovery that if you didn't specify the destination  
directory, or if what you specified didn't exist, the process would  
seem to complete but the result apparently went to /dev/null or  
someplace equally inaccessible.
