That sounds good. I would then assume that leaving the afore mentioned
box checked, for second chance's sake and manually deleting after
satisfactory transcoding would be the dev-intended management scheme?
Forgive me if I seem to be beating the crap out of this issue, I just
want to do the right thing first and not have to go back and clean up
an avoidable mess. Confirmation please. Daryl
