Delete after encode?


I am finding a lot of my mp3’s are being modified (art) or encoded and therefore the source files are being left making it very difficult to manage what has been processed.

is there a way of deleting the source file after processing?

also I have a lot of “Junk” files in the source folders (artwork, nfo’s etc) is there a way of removing everything from the source?

Any guidance or tips?

Hi! I linked to a relevant issue about the convert plugin specifically in another thread where you asked something similar:

For “junk” files, take a look at the clutter config option.

Thank you, clutter works perfectly! :slight_smile:
