Below is the standard structure for an OtsTurntables command-line. All command-line options only have an effect if a filespec is specified.
C:\OtsLabs\OTSTT.exe <filespec> <options>
The filespec can be any of the following:
- a specific Ots, Wave or MP3 file (e.g. "C:\Media Files\My File.ots")
- a folder/directory of files (e.g. "C:\Media Files\" or "C:\Media Files")
-a playlist file (e.g. "C:\OtsLabs\Templates\My Playlist.ofl" or "C:\Media Files\My Playlist.m3u")
- a CD-ROM drive letter (eg. "D:\" or "D:") If a drive letter is specified, but it does NOT represent a CD-ROM drive, then it is treated as a directory.
Note: It is necessary to include quotation marks before and after the filespec segment when using spaces in the filename, e.g. Media Files or My Playlist. If you do not include quotation mark the filespec will be ignored.
The following command-line options may be specified in conjunction with the filespec:
/RECURSE : This option only has an effect if the filespec represents a folder/directory. This option tells OtsTurntables to recursively scan any sub-folders in the specified folder for files, in addition to the base folder itself.
/OTS /WAV /MP3 : Any of these three options may be specified in order to instruct OtsTurntables about which file types it should load when scanning directories. If you don't specify any of these file types, OtsTurntables will include all types by default. This option only has an effect when a directory is specified for the filespec.
/SHUFFLE : This option tells OtsTurntables to shuffle (randomize) the playlist before playing it. This option has no effect if a CD-ROM drive is specified.
Note: All command-line options are case-insensitive, e.g., /RECURSE is the same as /recurse
