    Exclude parts of the music library from albums/artist/genre lists

    Hi,
    my name is Marius.

    I'm using Squeezebox with an own server for quite a long time now.
    But there is one thing that has bugged me ever since:

    Part of my music is perfectly organzied, the other part is a mixture of single files that are a mess.
    Sadly that means that all the views for albums, artists and genres are totaly mixed-up.
    I would love to be able to exclude the unmatched songs from those lists while still beeing able to search for them by text-search.

    I guess that's a problem that many people are facing...
    So i wonder if anybody found a solution for this?

    The organized files are in different folders than the unmatched ones...

    Can you help me?

    use erland's multilibrary plugin. Point one library at the unorganized folder. And fix your unorganized folder. mp3tag can use file names, etc. to automatically fill in artist, album, track, etc. if the file names contain this info.
