Import Meta Data
Allow to re-import all meta tags from original files and remote video sources for selected files. This can be actual for files that didn't render correctly at initial import or remote video items that have updated content available. Or sometimes new releases provide access to more data that was not accessible before and re-importing meta data can be a simple solution to get meta information synced.
