Are you sure about that? Are you using CBR? If you are using VBR it is very unlikely that they have the same bitrate. What is a point of your switch from mp3 collection to the wma or m4a if you keep the same bitrate? Those audio formats have advantage over mp3 because you could get smaller bitrate (and file size) for the same quality.

Maybe, but you suggested filesize.ext, not file size. By the way, there is also a possibility to have two different tracks with same file size, so it should be also in combination with some another metadata. Maybe filename.ext and file size.

- Added: option to restore playlists (both auto-playlists and static ones);
- Added: option to merge playlists (if Clear Playlists... option is turned off);
- Added: extra matching test for FileName/SongLength/Artist/Album/Year/TrackNumber fields (useful if audio format of tracks is different between backup and current database).
