Repair broken playlist links

It seems that playlist items use hardcoded paths. So if the file name or location changes the link to that movie in the playlist breaks. And there’s no easy way to fix it. You have to delete the original playlist item, find the movie again and re-add it to the playlist.

It would be great if Infuse could actively assist the user in repairing the link. So if you try to play a movie from a playlist and the link is broken a dialog could open saying “file not found, search or browse to find the missing file”. You would find the file within that dialog and click “fix link” and the original playlist item would be repaired.

This would be similar to Abobe products like Illustrator when you open a design file and the fonts are not found… there is a “repair missing fonts” option.
