Playing a movie from a shortcut? (1 Viewer)

Does anyone know of a hack or plugin that would allow MP to play movies via a shortcut to the movie instead of the movie itself?

All of my movies are MKV and I have automation that I have written that polls my movie files and creates symbolic links in specific folders such as "Genre", "Most Recent", "High Def", etc... This way I can find and play a given movie file by means of multiple locations. Lately, I have been having a ton of issues with managing all these symbolic links and would rather just have my automation create shortcuts instead. The only problem is making MP play the movie by clicking on the shortcut.

Any advice is appreciated.

The plugin MovingPictures can do it all. With the help of this plugin you can create different categories of your movies using different criteria.
