Adobe media player cache location.

With the flex 360 videos that are being posted on Adobe Media player (AMP) we queued quite a bunch of file and let it run over night. The next day the hard-drive was full. Searching for methods of deleting these files proved unsuccessful.

While working on some air apps we ran across the folder where the user specific data is saved and went hunting..

C:\Users\\AppDataRoaming\Adobe\Adobe Media Player\Local Store\cache
(this is on Vista 64-bit)

It would be in a similar path on the mac.

Delete the folders at this location and free up a ton of space.

Now we’ll go through and watch them a few at a time.

Looks like AMP is missing a vital trashcan icon in a few key places.
