Conditional arguments for smart view?

Hi there,

today I started to change my library from mp3 to flac. For start, I keep the mp3 files and re-rip my CDs alongside to FLAC in the same folder.

Is there a possibility to use conditional arguments for a smart view, like this

code:
if FLAC available
display FLAC file
else
display mp3 file



...or any workaround would be appreciated.

P.S.: Please, don't ask something like "Why do you want to do this?" - I just want it that way.

Ich suche jemand in Deutschland, der seinen TAMA Starclassic Maple Kesselsatz tauschen möchte BD:22, TT:14, 12, 10. Ich bin mit dem Set sehr zufrieden, habe mich aber an meiner Lackierung "Tequila Sunrise" sattgesehen. Das Set ist von 2002, gepflegt und wurde ausschließlich in Cases transportiert. Bei Interesse bitte PM an mich. Immernoch aktuell in 2018!!!

But wouldn't that just put the FLAC file in the smart view and no mp3 file?

Maybe I wasn't clear enough before (or I didn't get your point right):

In the folders I have:

folder1
-song1.mp3
-song1.flac
folder2
-song2.mp3

In the smart view I just want to see song1.flac and song2.mp3.

Zack,

in my setup, I use root folders to do what you want.

so, early on, my files are divided between ALAC and mp3. (I used to use FLAC but ALAC makes them work natively with apple as well, so why not?)

in any case, you could then have 2 mp3 roots, one for a mirror of the lossless, and one for those mp3s with no lossless equal. one smartview could then be lossless + lossy with no equals. (the mirror would not then be included)

I don't get it. How is the synatx for your 2-roots-solution? Don't you need a conditonal statement for that, too?
code:

mp3 flac SmartView
| | |
|_folder1 |_folder1 |_folder1
| |_song1.mp3 | | | |_song1.mp3
| |_song2.mp3 | |_song2.flac | |_song2.flac
| | |
|_folder2 |_folder2 |_folder2
|_song1.mp3 |_song1.flac |_song1.flac
|_song2.mp3 |_song2.mp3

its like this:

..\music\ALAC\whatever\.. (that's the lossless obviously)
..\music\mp3\whatever\.. (that's the stuff of which there is no ALAC/lossless equal)
..\music\mp3_mirror\whatever\.. (that's the mp3 mirror of the ALAC stuff)

so your main custom smartview for listening would include the first two root locations, and not the third.

(and obviously you could make other smartviews, like a lossy only one, a lossless only one, a mirror only one, etc)

with me?

Aaah, now I see.

But I'd like to have it completely smart.

Taking your solution, you have to sort it out by hand in a way. Of course it's not too much of work, but I'd rather let the smartview do it all... Even though it doesn't seem to be possible with the current Winamp capabilities.

Thanks for the suggestion anyway.

personally, I think this is the best way to do it, I have some 70k+ tracks and this helps manage it all. why insist on keeping the formats together in one spot?

since winamp can't do what you want, and since this way works with other apps as well, why not do it?

Sometimes I'm a little too strict regarding my technical esthetics and this doesn't make it easier to go with a "second best" solution.
