(i tried searching the forums but am probably using the wrong key-words: i could not find anything on this.)

ok, here is my next effect:

i have a few albums which were ripped half in MP3 and half in Vorbis. (this was done because some songs were supposed to play on an iPod).

these albums show up twice, even though the tagging is clearly identical.

has anyone else seen this?

But they're still different files in different formats. That's expected behaviour.

You can turn off one of the formats in Server Settings/File Formats. They will then be ignored.

thanks for clearing that up mherger!

hmmm... i am not sure i like that. if i turn one format off, doesnt that mean i wont see the songs at all anymore? that is not really an option, since the tracks are not actually duplicate.

example:
Album A, tracks 1-4 -> MP3
Album A, tracks 5-9 -> vorbis

this shows up in browse -> albums as:
Album A
tracks 1-4
Album A
tracks 5-9

but since the albums are identical, i would expect:
Album A
tracks 1-9

isnt there a way to do that?

thanks again!
