Remove Missing Audio References

<10kB. Updated 2016-09-12. Only supports Anki 2.0.x.


This plugin removes or replaces all Anki notes references to audiofiles missing from the media collection and was built primarily for Rikaisama users importing cards with audio. After installing, click on Tools -> Remove Absent Audio References. When used to remove oral recognition cards having audio as frontside, Tools -> Empty Cards afterwards to remove all those empty card instances. To replace a missing audio reference with a string of your own liking instead of removing it, edit the REPLACE_STRING string in this plugin's python file, to be found in Anki's addons folder. For questions or support, please refer to this plugin's github page.

I thought my problem was so specific I'd never be able to fix it. Turns out an addon was written specifically for it, and I greatly appreciate that! Thank you, sir.

Don't get it

How is this different from the Check media... command already present in Anki?
