FLAC and iTunes

Postby Kifle » Fri Apr 18, 2008 3:30 pm

Is there any way to get iTunes to recognize FLAC files or to somehow get the ipod to play FLAC files?

I found this: http://www.ipodlinux.org/MPD

I'm sure there won't be an easier way, Apple likes things proprietary.

a while back i got iTunes to play nice with FLAC on OSX following this guide
http://www.simplehelp.net/2007/09/20/how-to-play-flac-files-in-itunes/

to get them to play on your iPod tho, youre going to have to go the ipodlinux or rockbox route.
