Hey guys - new poster here. I'm also a musician looking for a way to set up FLAC files online for others to review/audition.

From the little bit I've seen, I think a browser/web-based player might be too much to ask right now. I think the best option - particularly the small/limited audience is to "encourage" them to put a media player on their machine and listen that way. I've found (so far) two free/open-source/cross-platform players that handle FLAC "out of the box" - VLC Media Player and Songbird. There may be others, so don't flame me if I've missed something along the way.

One additional wrinkle - I've found that VLC handles multi-channel (i.e. surround) FLAC files pretty well, but Songbird doesn't seem to map to the audio card endpoints correctly (although it seems to recognize the multi-channel file just fine). I don't think that's a knock, per se, since I get a feeling the overt surround support from them is further down their development roadmap.

My experiments this week will be with pushing FLAC files to my web server and then trying to play back the URL directly through VLC media player - both by directly calling the .flac files and through a playlist. My web server doesn't "officially" support streaming but the progressive download is sufficient to stream some pretty hefty H.264 encoded video files so I feel like it's worth a shot. I don't know if there's a way to set a streaming bit on a FLAC file so that the player will *know* how much it should cache before trying to play the file - but then again, that's what the experiment is for.

Anyway, I hope this helps to steer the discussion in a productive direction.
