Broken links to movies in TV App

I moved my iTunes Media Folder to a NAS and pointed the TV app to that folder. Most of the movies and TV shows work fine but there are some that won't play. When I "Get Info" about the movie from the Library page and check the path for the file location, it is nowhere near the correct location. How can I correct the path for all the movies that have incorrect links?

I don't have enough information to help you. See if this is some sort of starting point, https://support.apple.com/guide/tvapp-mac/files-preferences-tv0f5accea/mac

Unfortunately nothing that I've found online helps with my problem. I already have the preferences setup to point to the correct folder for the media. Most of the movies are fine but some in the TV app for the Mac have weird paths so the app isn't finding the movie. For example, here is the "Get Info" window from the TV app for a movie that it cannot play…

Animal House

 

Here is the window for a movie that plays fine…

Holy Grail

If you can enlarge the screenshots, you can see that the path for the "good" movie file points to the correct location while the path for the "bad" movie is way off base. I can't figure out a way to correct the path in the TV app.
