Validate mu3 not m3u8


Various players cannot handle m3u8 files which are the UTF8 variant of an m3u playlist file. For these players you cannot simply rename the file as they often do not properly process UTF8 characters.

The purpose of this action is to test if the current file selection can be placed into an m3u file. If it cannot, a listing is produced describing the faulting file's initial file and re-encoded as Latin-1 file paths.
