The new file locateing feature in vMix 25 broke our simplified workflow at church, resulting in that we still are using vMix 24. We normally play a unique video file every service that has several specific settings and triggers and is routed to our local screens as well as the live stream. Prior to vMix 25 we could save the vMix presets with a placeholder video file, and then remove it from its folder. When the vMix preset file was opened the user got a file select browser, and could just doubleclick on the correct video file to import it into vMix with all the settings and triggers applied.

We need that people that are not so technical, to be abel to control vMix, mostly using a few buttons on a streamdeck. Although a video file can be located with the new file locating dialog box, it requires a lot of extra clicks and is not very intuitive compared to a file browser, at least when only importing one file. If the checkbox is accidentally uncheckt the file will not be imported.

Suggestions for a Fix:
1. Make a setting to be abel to turn on and off the new file locating dialogbox.
2. Make a new api command with the ability to change the file in a specific input (opening a normal file browser). If this feature is implemented it would in addition be nice to be able to set a complete file path for a video file in a input, with an api comand.
