I'm getting a Media Offline red screen showing for my edited video project. I've watched YouTube videos and every one shows how to relink to your original files. My problem is slightly different. I saved my project and then exported it to a MP4 file except that I chose the same name as the original file I used in creating my video. Fortunately, I have a copy of the original file elsewhere but how can I now make the switch? None of the YouTube videos show how to do this because I’m not missing a link to the original MP4, I overwrote it. Fortunately, its only one video file.

Thank you Ann, that was an easy fix! Changing the name of the source file prompted Premier to ask for a new link so I could use the proper file.
