Filter Duplicate File Artist and Title in The Playlist
Dear all,

I am new to foobar2000 and I have a lot of collection of music files which are scattered in several folders and some may be duplicates. I intend to sort out those duplicates, but I don't know how to filter the duplicated artist and title to be considered for displayed in the playlist. Sorry if this question is too basic or has been asked before. I tried to look for it, in the forum it was mentioned to use Playlist Tree but I downloaded it and tried it but unsuccessful.  Please explain in detail if possible. Thank you.

i'm not familiar with playlist tree but you can do this with foo_facets. http://www.foobar2000.org/components/view/foo_facets

make sure foobar is set to watch all your music folders under file>preferences>media library
install the component and add a panel to your layout.
right click the column header in the first pane and select columns>artist.
right click the column header>columns>multiple columns
right click the column header> columns>Title
right click the column header>statistics>items
now click the items heading until it's reverse sorted with the highest value first.
select each one in turn and it will send all duplicates to a playlist.
