    Ways to Ignore Tracks ?

    Is there a way to get Slimserver to ignore tracks in the directory tree? In my completist was I want to have all tracks in all albums there, but some are pet hates, so I want Slimserver to ignore them.

    Any thoughts ?

    You call it "pet hates", others simply don't want their daughter's latest
    Britney Spears CD to show up, or they hate Celine Dion. Requests for some
    user defined filtering have been numerous. See

    Good question. I was wondering this myself. When I create .m3u playlists for albums I'll often leave out one or more tracks. Sometimes it's vocal commentary, sometimes "bonus" tracks that detract from the album as originally issued.

    An easy work-around would be to just leave the track in place, but give it a bogus non-music extension. Do a rescan (probably requiring a 'wipe cache') and the track won't appear in SlimServer and "All Songs" will skip it. The downside is that the track won't be playable by anyone else using the system.
