How do I delete/clear my Media Library ?

Maybe a dumb question, but how do I clear my Media Library as a whole, that is to be able to start up with an empty Library again ? I can't find an option for this or didn't I search enough ?

Easy squeezy. On the Media Importing tab in the ML prefs, remove all directories from the Media Scanner Settings. Set it to automatically remove missing files. Rescan.

Or you can delete main.dat in the plugins\ML folder while Winamp is closed.

Or: Local Media (left pane) > right click an entry (right pane) > select all > delete

Though yeah, as Pussybot Robo says, you'll also need to clear the dir's in the Media Scanner list and/or uncheck "rescan folders at startup" . . .
