Summary0000626: Alow Proxy/Transcode video files to exist in a different directory
DescriptionCurrently when you create a Proxy or Transcode file, it MUST exist in the exact same directory as the video file. This was how it was designed for Proxy for speed purposes to quickly switch back and forth and so as not to have to re-create the proxy file on subsequent work. It would be a lot neater to put either the Proxy or Transcode file in another designated directory. An alternative would be to have it in the same place that already exists and is in use with CinGG of $HOME/Pictures as a default because this directory exists on most, if not all, O/S distros for a user. Then in Settings->Preferences, the Interface tab, the "Snapshot/Grabshot location" can be used to designate where the user would also like to put their proxy/transcode files.
TagsNo tags attached.

i think this might be a bit more involved than just appending directory to filepath..

Because user might have two different but same-named files in different locations. And just turning full path into filename might fail easily because full filename length limited to 128-255 chars.
