Flac wont play

Post by devilisinthedetails »

Hi, Im new to the forums and I apologize if this question has been repeated numerous times and for my stupidity.

I'm having troubles playing flac files in mm 3.0.3.1183 gold. Ive tried to find out through google and the forums why it wont play but end up with nothing. I have also tried to play the file through wmp and vln but ended in negative results. anyone know whats wrong??

I don't think that WMP can play flac files, and what is VLN?

If it won't play in VLC then maybe the files have somehow become corrupted?

Well VLC can play just about anything. Do you have another computer or device you can test them on?

this is how it was ripped


Ripped from DVD-Audio disc with DVD-Audio Explorer 2008.07.21, extracted to merged WAV, then compressed with FLAC level 8. 24-bit 88.2khz 5.1 channels.


and i believe others have gotten it to play
