acidrip, change default output directory

Is it possible to use a different output directory other then my / home directory? I tried using this for a file name
but it will not use the directory /home/shane/movies, it is still just using /home/shane

Thanks for any input

I think the config file is in /home/username/.acidriprc or something like that. You can probably change the default output directory by editing the config file.

you would think so, but I did not see any option in it for that. I am probably missing something obvious.

old question, but this might help someone

I was able to change the default file destination in Acidrip by editing /usr/share/perl5/AcidRip/ to read as follows:

'filename'                => '/path/to/store/files' . '/%T',
Ubuntu 10.04 Acidrip 0.14
