      converting existing linked container data to externally stored data

      Post

           I migrated an existing FM11 solution that contained videos in a container field to FM12. The videos were linked, not embedded. As a result, we had cross platform problems when trying to play the videos. So I'm told that FM 12 with externally stored container data will fix that issue.

           What is the most straightforward process to convert the previously linked video files to externally stored container data in an existing solution?

           The files are already externally stored if I understand this correctly. The goal is to have video files that play on whatever platform one happens to be using. RIght now, since the video files (container data) is linked with the path being defined in PC terms, a Mac doesn't understand how to get the file and can't play them.

           I believe the same server hosts both the FM database as well as the video archive.

           as always, thanks in advance
