    Organising flacs and mp3s to different players.

    I have searched on the forum and not found an answer to my problem.

    I have most of my collection in flac. I have converted these to mp3s and store bothsets of files. There are more mp3s than flacs, but not by much.
    I have a slimp3, receiver and touch.
    I absolutely do not want to transcode on the server (running on a plug computer).

    I clearly need to serve mp3s to the slimp3, as it does not support anything else. Ideally I would like to stream flacs to the other two.

    How do people manage this ? How do you set up the server and library ? Is this possible ?

    Would the multi-library plugin help? then use the "mp3 library" for the one player?
