Playlist Cleaner is a LUA extension for VLC which checks the active playlist for files that are duplicates, deleted, or otherwise moved; and if so, removes them from the playlist. This prevents you from seeing "VLC file not found" errors. I could not find any addons along these lines for VLC, so I decided to make one myself. This is my first routine in LUA so advice or suggestions for improvement would be appreciated.
