  1. What title says.
    The switches for the commands don't work. For example I want to use /randomize to randomize the playlist content but the command is simply ignored. Tried other commands and no go.

    This is what I was trying to do:

    "C:\Program Files\DAUM\PotPlayer\PotPlayerMini64.exe" "E:\Perfil\Desktop\Newfolder\*.dpl" /randomize

    The player only recognizes the exact path and filename but not the wildcard for example despite saying it supports it.

    My final goal is to make a context menu that only plays the .dpl file present in a folder, this to make a faster load of the playlist instead of letting potplayer make the playlist from the folder contents every time. I managed to make this menu but I'm lacking the correct command line to make it work as I need and that's where I realized that command line switches are ignored (even when passing them from cmd).

    Below the command line help from the program:

    Usage: PotPlayerMini64.exe ["content"] [/switch]
    "content"	:You can specify a file, folder or URL as content.
                    -You can specify multiple contents by separating them with a space.

  5. what if you placed all the dpl files into a single directory. That way there is no need for the wildcard character

    "C:\Program Files\DAUM\PotPlayer\PotPlayerMini64.exe" "E:\Perfil\Desktop\dpl_files" /randomize
