Refresh Media References

<10kB. Updated 2017-08-07. Only supports Anki 2.0.x.


Adds an entry in the Tools menu that clears the webview cache (hotkey: Ctrl+Alt+M). This will effectively refresh all media files used by your cards and templates, allowing you to display changes to external files without having to restart Anki. The add-on will also update the modification time of your media collection which will force an upload of any updated files on the next synchronization with AnkiWeb. Note: Might lead to increased memory consumption if used excessively COMPATIBILITY This add-on only works with Anki's stable release branch (2.0.x ≥ 2.0.30). The 2.1 beta branch is not supported at this point in time.

sounds great but does not seem to be applicable to Anki 2.1 - If it is indeed so, I'd love to see an update :)
