The transcodes should get cleared out automatically when they are no longer needed such as when a user gets done playing the current video. I believe the transcode directory is also used as well during DVR.
If you are seeing the transcode directory fill up when NOT BEING USED then please upload your current server log and ffmpeg logs so we can take a look at it.
Luke has already mentioned that this is something that will be addressed in an upcoming release and there will be better management of this directory which could even allow it to run on large ram discs or small SSD drives (when updated).
But for now please upload a set of log files if you aren't seeing files cleared out properly on their own.Go to the full post
