    I thought Perian supported it, but maybe i'm wrong.
    Just use VLC media or something.... Probably the best bet, although it doesn't help with quick view.

    I don't know if this will work for you (I don't know of any FLAC-playing plug-ins), but you could use XLD to convert your FLAC files to ALAC and then play them with Quick Look that way.

    VLC will play .flac files, but not through Quick Look.
    That doesn't work.

    It won't work with Quick Look unless you convert them to another format.

    I'm looking for this solution also but if you just want to play flac files you can use COG. I'm using this software to listen to music (it is like winamp for windows), it can play lot of different formats including FLAC

    I innstalled Fluke last stable version and it start working, I didn't even reboot. What else related to .flac I have installed: MacFlac, Perian, Cog, XLD, Xact. Check if you have installed this and let me know if it works for you

    Glad to hear,
    that's right other 2 are not necessary, but I'm using them to rip/convert music especially XLD, Xact I installed only to see what is this and How it's working, but I think XLD is better

    Confirmed, There are only required two applications (Fluke and Perian) to have Flac working with Quick Look verified with OS X 10.6.7. I tried this with 10.6.3 and no effect. Tested on OS X 10.7; works with Fluke only

    Fluke partly works

    I installed Fluke which doesn't work:

    Fluke Error
    An unexpected error has occurred during execution of the main script
    GUIFormatError: app(u'/Applications/iTunes.app').add

    But hitting the spacebar with a .flac file selected in Finder plays beautifully.

    MacBookPro3,1 6GB
    OS X 10.6.8 (32 bit)
    iTunes 10.6.1
    Perian 1.2.3
