Re: playback problems

What do you mean by "will not play" exactly?

What type of files?

Re: playback problems

Not sure, but maybe itunes doesn't decode flac. Try decoding to wav with flac frontend or another program. Then import.

Re: playback problems

fwiw iTunes does not support FLAC

but VLC does play FLAC on PC, so I'm surprised to hear it isn't working on mac

anyhow there's some software recommendations in the FAQ (link up top of the page)

Re: playback problems

Take a look in the Software Recommendations part of the FAQ under the Mac links. Cog will play your flac files for you. xACT will decode to wav, if you want to burn them to a playable CD. VLC is for playing video.
