Just like the shell one.

Basically, put in your extensions an “unsupported” file type. Let’s say “ogg”. so:

extensions = .mp3,.m4a,.m4p,.ogg

okay, then set up your ssc stuff:

ssc_codectypes = ogg
ssc_prog = /path/to/

then force a rescan, either by deleting your db, or running with the -r option. Then when you click on an ogg file in iTunes, it gets converted to .wav by

You can also use, which requires less “stuff”, but works with less file types, though.
