Adding only certain file types to lib.

Hi there!
Is there anyway to add only a certain file type to the Media library?
The thing is that I only want to have FLAC music on the library and normally i convert the FLAC files to MP3 for playback on iPod (Itunes does not support FLAC) so I really dont want my songs being doubled in FLAC and MP3. Is there a way to only add FLACs?

Unlike album list, Winamp's library sadly has no filter for file types.

There are some workarounds, to get what you want. On you can get, when you simply edit the query of you local view(s).

Right click on a library tree item under 'Local Media', for example the 'Audio' view. Choose 'Edit View' and set it up, like on that screenshot:

Surley not as good as a proper file extension filter would be, but at least it works.
