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

Not that 'everyone else is worse than me!' is a good argument, but ... what difference does the streaming of lossless audio count, compared to all the high-def porn movie content transfered world webwide?

In defense of the porn, it's at least VERY compressed.

Uncompressed 1920x1080 24-bit color video at 30fps is roughly 1.5Gbps.. If over one intermediate hop it was crossing a not atypical 10Gbps fiber, you by yourself would consume 15% of the capacity of that link. If 6 people were streaming that feed, that link would be nearly saturated. if one other person tried to start watching, then we'd have contention, lag, etc, and pretty much anyone else trying to post a tweet or something would have a bad time doing it.

There are ways to mitigate the issue, but the point is those methods shouldn't be caused because 6 or 7 people have it in their head that lossy compression is unacceptable and therefore deem it acceptable to waste a finite resource (internet bandwidth) that we all share.

Just because some people waste bandwidth, doesn't excuse us for doing the same. Obviously, you are not compelled to conserve internet bandwidth, but if we all waste it pointlessly we'll all have to deal with the congestion that will occur.

Streaming FLAC for a one time listening session is a pointless waste.. Transferring a copy of a FLAC file for permanent storage and use on a client isn't. That's all I'm saying..
