      Description

      Hello!

      So I have a question regarding the Delete Duplicate Songs functionality in SongKong.

      Due to limitations in some devices and players I would like to be able to use the Delete Duplicate Songs feature but keep the highest bitrate lossless song AND the highest bitrate lossy song I have. Admittedly the bitrate choice is my own preference, the Advanced -> Preferred Deletion Criteria and Advanced -> Preferred Audio Format should be used as the criteria.

      Unfortunately this is necessary because many devices still do not recognize flacs, ogg, etc, so I keep around a flac file and an mp3 file in my library.

      Example, I have The Beatles USB Boxed set and have both the flac and mp3 versions of the songs in my library because I prefer to play the flac files on devices that support it. However my car radio will play songs, which I directly copy from my library, but it does not play flac files.
