Hi,

is there a good, hopefully free, program out there that automatically removes duplicates from the iTunes Library?

    iTunes has a way of displaying duplicates.

    Open iTunes.
    Select Music Library
    Under the "View" menu, select "Show Duplicates"

    It doesn't remove anything, but shows you what is there. You can then decide what you want to delete.

    I usually mark all my dupes within a grouping, then I go over them with a fine tooth comb. Sometimes the de-dupe feature of iTunes catches things that really aren't dupes, such as a live version vs a studio version vs a bootleg version, etc.

    Best

    not the answer I was looking for.

    I have over 50,000 listings in my iTunes library.

    I was looking for something automatic I found iDupe with google. that seems to do the trick.

    Cheers,
