All my lossy albums used for car, iphone etc are well separated from my main listening library.


The main reasons for having my FLAC tracks doubled are
1) I have renderers that do not support FLAC/WAV playback but do support MP3 (e.g. a Sony TV)
2) I use BubbleUPnP Server to stream over a mobile connection to my phone. For this I use MP3 to save bandwidth.

BubbleUPnP Server would be able to do realtime FLAC->MP3 transcoding even on my weak ARM NAS with a special version of ffmpeg featuring libshine. But as long as I have enough free storage available, I prefer it this way. Until now, I had no problem switching between FLAC and MP3 using folder view and subsequently tag view again. The new special index tag #AudioFormat provides an even better way to do this.
