Ots Item List format

The Ots Item List format is best suited if you require portability between various OtsAV installations and file/folder layouts. The items referenced within the list are identified by their title, artist and a special signature, making the references more immune to broken links after you reorganize your files, change filenames and/or folder storage locations.

Note: If an item referenced within an OIL file is later changed in a significant way -- it's title or artist information is edited, or the audio data is altered -- the reference may no longer be valid, as the correct item can not reliably be determined. If this happens you will end up with a placeholder directive occupying the item's position in the list. Bear this in mind when making changes to files in Ots Studio.
