The media library is transportable from any version, to any version of Ots. The only exception is from some newer versions to older versions, and even then, if the older version doesn't recognize part of the library, it will skip the unrecognized chunks.

Just copy the database from the current computer, to the new, using the same data path. Do the same with the oml file that is by default located in your OtsLabs\Data folder.

3 -Media library then open
4 -save currant media state comes up

Delete the file OTSAVDjt and the rename OTSAVDJ to OTSAVDjt.

That should work.

This page in the Ots Labs documentation explains the Media Library and the file name of the file in different variants of Ots AV:

Now that i have copied that media library and have installed it on new Puter.
I also have my music in a folder on desktop.
This music has different pathways on new puter.

1) do i still import/refresh into media library ?
2) if so how do i get the media library to match up to these new pathways or songs.

If none of above please advise how.

apologies for being a pain as i really dont want to stuff it up

cheers

You need to do a "RELINK"

I'm not acquainted with Ots Silver so I'm guessing it will be similar to OtsDJ 1.85

There hopefully is an icon that looks like a folder, which says import/refresh. If so press this and select "RELINK UNAVAILABLE FILES". Point the next screen to your NEW folder on the desktop.

Once this is completed you will need to select unavailable items from your library list and delete all unavailable items.

You should now have all your files with all their data on the new machine.

HTH

AFAIK Silver is a cut down version of Esperence with no video features etc.

From some of Auckland's other questions I'm guessing his Pro version is 1.85 so he will also be faced with the differences between 1.85 & 1.9 in which case the documentation here will help a lot.

The re-link is the refresh. Don't do the refresh and a re-link, as that will likely duplicate your track items, and create a load of unavailable items in the process. All of the "New" available tracks won't have any genre and play info associated with them, and will be lost when you remove the unavailable duplicates.

Just enter uncat in the OMQL field.

There is a drop down arrow to the left of the OMQL field which will offer a list of example searches, including Uncategorized items.
