Working Through File Command?

Hi All: This was certainly a hard subject-line to ask about?
I wonder if I can search for or delete files in a directory based on what
"file" reports? You see, I am still trying to enjoy Mutella, a file sharing
program. However, now much of the time my searches are hijacked--and while the
files may actually have an mp3 extention, they are apple or isa media,
according to file. Sure I can nuke them from the directory, but if there were
a way to enter a system command in Mutella or in my searches to ignore these
other file types. Especially last 2-weeks its gotten so bad I closed out
Mutella, but I really would like a better solution. I have a quite large list
of exception words in all my searches, but I figure I could have more accurate
results if I can use the file command.
Any suggestions please. In linux, other than Mutella, I had run overnet.
Thanks in advance
