Like the topic title says, I'd like it if the bit rate, length (of the audio, like mm:ss) and file size are available as columns in Jaikoz's table. This would make it a lot easier to decide which one of duplicate files you'd like to keep.

It could be even more easy if there was another action that handles duplicates automatically. Its settings could look like this:
"If the musicIP ID/musicbrainz ID is the same, keep the one with the largest/smallest bitrate/filesize/duration.
If the criterium above is equal, keep the one with the largest/smallest bitrate/filesize/duration.
If the criterium above is equal, keep the one with the largest/smallest bitrate/filesize/duration.
If the criterium above is equal, ask me which one to keep/ignore this duplicate/call the Java police."

Bit Rate and Filesize are available but not in the Edit tab, only in the Mpeg tab which is visible when you select 'View/Show View Pane' . In the initial versions of Jaikoz the View Pane was shown by default, now it isn't so I accept it not as easy to see these fields as if they were shown on the Edit tab, however they are not editable so not that keen about putting them on the edit tab. I am going to add a detail tab in the console area that would show detail of the currently selected record, and this would include the details of the Bit rate, length and file size column.

Thats sounds like a workable algorithm.

I don't see Bit Rate anywhere as a display column option. I do see it in the Edit Tab.

Am I misunderstanding your original answer and Bit Rate is not available to display as a column?

Bit rate is shown on the Detail/Summary Tab and on the View/MPEG Tab. it is not editable so is not shown on the edit tab.
