Why aren't you using Apple Lossless or AIFF?

For that matter, why are you encoding in lossless? Do you have 24-bit Linear PCM source masters?

Maybe he/she has a FLAC file that he/she wants to play. (wild guess)

I think VLC can play FLAC.

I think Play is still waiting for Leopard compatibility but I much prefer Cog anyway. Your best bet is the latest development build (http://cogx.org/development.php). Set the update preferences for the nightly build and you'll always get the very latest.

what are you talking about? Lossless in this sense means that it's an exact copy of the quality of the audio found on a bought cd, which aac and mp3 isn't
