Re: flac and torrent on mac ?

Running Mountain Lion (OSX 10.8.5) on a 7 year old Mac Book Pro. For torrent client, I'm using uTorrent 1.8.7 (Mac version, obviously).

Do you mean how to play FLACs on a Mac? If so, I use Cog 0.07 (r909). It's a small, simple app but no longer supported or updated (I think) so occasionally it's a little buggy. I just delete playlist & restart app.

Audacity is fine if you want to do any editing. If you must use iTunes, either xACT or XLD are great for converting FLAC > ALAC (Apple Lossless m4a.), or to WAV/AIFF.

Hope that helps.

VLC is a great all purpose media player.

uTorrent is good stuff for downloading.
