script to delete file

Post by jloyzaga » Sat Oct 20, 2018 9:57 pm

I am sorting by ascending bitrate within album, within, title within artist so I get the highest quality version of the file of all my duplicates of the files with an artist attributed.

Is there anyone that can give me a script that will search down the playlist and when it finds a file with an artist,title,album and multiple files and remove all but the last one from the library.

I can set the delete to only remove from library and not ask for confirmation. I would like some documentation as to how to run a script too.

Can anyone help?

Joe
