Hi,

I was wondering if there was a method for prioritising FLAC files over MP3s? It would be useful when scanning and two tracks of the same name exist in a folder it would only add the FLAC version to the database and ignore the MP3.

I've got most of my music in MP3Pro format, but I'm gradually adding FLAC versions as well. I need to retain the MP3s for iPod, car CD and other media player compatibility, but would prefer slimserver to ignore them if a better file exists in the same folder.

Cheers,
Grahame.

However, you can remove the mp3 line from types.conf once you have your
entire collection in FLAC. This will make all the mp3 files invisible
to slimserver with the exception of those that are referenced from
playlists.
