I have an iTunes playlist with a mix of m4a and mp3 files. I'd like to insert a few FLAC files at specific points in the playlist, but can't get them to show up in iTunes. Suggestions on how to do this? Thanks!

iTunes can't play or recognize FLAC.

You'll have to convert them to ALAC.

I'll try to maybe add the file into the play list using SlimServer after SS picks up the iTunes playlist. Not sure if that will work (?)

Should do, but if you just edit the playlist it may get overwritten next time the iTunes database is scanned.

Found an answer (I think). Created the mp3/m4a playlist in iTunes. Then in SS, I added the playist to the player and then used Save. Gave the playlist a new name and then edited the playlist. Seems to work(?)

EDIT: After some testing, seems to have worked perfectly. Did a clear/rescan of the SS database to test and didn't seem to affect the new non-iTunes Playlist.
