Help! How do I manage Lossless and compressed duplicates in iTunes?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

i have ALAC files to stream to my home stereo, and compressed 256 VBR versions for my iPod... 

 

so how do i keep the 256 versions out of my main library so i don't have to hear every song twice on my stereo?

 

TIA!!

Back in the dark ages when I had iTunes (foobar ftw) I put (ALAC) in the album tag that way they could be distinguished from each other.

hmmm... that may be a good idea.  i just need to train my wife to use the ALAC albums.  so there's no way to create two different Libraries... a portable and a home?

You could possibly move all the ALAC files to a playlist, and use that as a lossless "library". Not sure how well it would work though...

This would be easy to set up too. Just sort all files by bit rate & select everything over 320...
