Hello, great, it works like a charm, please commit! (It even updates the location of the files in the xml file when resaving the project). Thanks!

Could you try this (quick) patch ?

The subtitleeditorproject first check if files exists or try to find video,waveform,keyframe in the same directory.

(This don't work if your media are in a subdirectory)

Best regards,

(file #23348)

Subtitle editor xml files can include paths to keyframes, waveform and video. At present, they are absolute, so when I move the directory with these files, the links stop working. However, my workflow is that I always keep all the fales for on project in one directory. If the xml file at least optionally could keep links relative to its position, it would simplify my life! Now I often have to edit the xml by hand if I move folder around.

I.e instead of:
and have current directory set to the directory of the xml file. If this were at least optional, it would be great!
