I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this request, but i'll give it a try anyway:
My music library contains files in different formats: flac, ogg, mp3. Some of the files are "redundant" and it would be nice if I could give the Slimserver library scanner a preference file extension (or extensions in a certain order) so that only a file with the preferred extension gets added to the database and the others will be ignored. (prefered subdirectories could also be an option). This would be helpful when you want to build for instance a "highest quality" database without the need of administering all the separate files.
Has someone already "invented" this feature or alternatives already?

Cheers,
T.

there IS a pref for file types to ignore in the server settings, but
anything smarter probably falls under:

Yes, this describes the problem. What is the status of this bug? Is someone actuallly working on it and can we expect a solution in the near future?
