    I'm looking for a media player e.g. something like wmp, vlc, gom etc. that will fix playlists by searching a volume for moved files. The scenario occurs often for me where the files listed in a playlist have been moved to another location. Often the playlist will contain files from various locations and it would be useful to have something that automatically repairs the list.

    I have found an application that does this http://listfix.sourceforge.net/ however I first have to manually export the playlist from my media player, this gets tedious when I have many playlists to fix so I would like a media player that has this functionality built in.

    Sometimes it is the case where the media player cannot export a 'broken playlist' for example itunes will export the playlist, but files it cannot find will be missing from the playlist so listfix cannot do anything to fix that.
