Hi! Iíve recently purchased a Squeezebox and Iím using it with iTunes, to which Iíve converted all my CDs to Apple Lossless files. However, I would like to keep two separate libraries Ė one for lossless music (to Squeezebox) and one with lossy files for my iPod.

How can I achieve this? I can easily have two libraries with iTunes (i.e two different XML-files pointing to different files) and switch between these since this function is built in iTunes. The problem is that the Slimserver finds all the music, resulting in a lot of double songs Ö

What would happen if I set up another user on my computer (Iím running Win XP) and have all the lossy files with the other user. Would Slimserver find this music as well, if I run it from my main user?

Any help would be appreciated.

You could simply just keep these files in seperate directories, and point SlimServer to only the lossless directory. Does that make sense?


\music\lossless
\music\lossy

SlimServer music directory:

\music\lossless
