I'm looking for a web player (flash ?) I can embbed in my html pages in order to allow site visitors to play FLAC audio file.
(juste need a start/stop/pause button and a progression bar).

I've found several tool on the web. Either as Java or as Flash but only for mp3 files ..... nothing for FLAC files crying.gif

Thanks for the quick answer smile.gif

At a first sight :
-Sockso looks like an application for pc's/windows machine.
-jFlac seems to need several developpment to be implemented (unfortunatly I'm not a web developper).

Maybe a solution can be on the Ampache way ... altought it's look like a B52 used for kiling a bee. I'll investigate to extract only the player part of the software wink.gif


@pdq: because I produce my music in FLAC format ... not mp3.

He's questioning you because flac files are quite large compared to mp3. Your ordinary visitor isn't going to care or notice that your streamed files are lossless. The whole point of lossy encoding (mp3 et al.) is to deliver content that is (a) more or less perceptually transparent vs. the original and (b) a fraction of the size.

You're free to do whatever you want, but hosting/streaming flac files is a huge waste in storage and bandwidth.

Since when was retaining fidelity a huge waste?

That's right... I did it.
