Where are sync transcodes stored on my computer?

As your Plex Media Server transcodes content for Mobile Sync, it will be stored on your computer until a sync occurs. Once the content is synced to the device, the transcoded version is removed from your computer.

File Locations

The specific location where transcoded content is stored varies based on your operating system:

Windows

On Windows, the content is located inside of the user directory.

%LOCALAPPDATA%\Plex Media Server\Cache\Transcode\Sync\

OS X

Using the Finder's "Go" menu, select Go To Folder... then enter the following in the dialog box that pops up:

~/Library/Caches/PlexMediaServer/Transcode/Sync/
