Is there away to install Custom Compressor Settings on a workstation that all users will have access to?

Thank you

Custom settings can be shared. They are stored in the following location, and can be copied between computers easily. If you email a custom setting to someone, zip it first, so the email server doesn't reformat the file and screw it up.

Users > [user home folder] > Library > Application Support > Compressor > Settings

Compressor custom settings have the suffix .cmpstng and the following icon in the Finder.





Unfortunately, I don't know any way to share a custom preset universally between all users, short of putting this in each user's Compressor settings folder. Droplets may be another possible way to share custom settings.

Thanks, already aware of adding custom settings in the User level but I am looking for a option to add it on the Workstation level.
