Linked video files for desktop apps


One thing that would be REALLY useful to us would be to have the ability to have video files linked to an actual desktop video (file/location), rather than having to embed it in the applications.

eg.If we have an simple 'spin the wheel' game where someone can press a button to spin/stop a wheel to win a prize. When not in use, it will play a video. At the moment, the video must be re-embedded and the app re-exported everytime we update the video.

It would be good if the app could be set to look for a file in the same root as the app (linked file, where we set the filename). Then we could simply just replace the video rather than a full re-export.
