The existing application can do 2 things.
It can send command line parameters
It can send a formatted URL

I can either catch the command line parameters - which is what I’ve been asking for or write the application to be a server responding to a URL sent to localhost.

The latter seems overly complicated and could introduce latency which I don’t want.
