Are there any ways I can get iTunes to read FLAC sound files on Windows 7?
I've tried some programs recommended on the interwebz, but they aren't working.



None.

None.

Just download and install it. Any decent media player can use external codecs.

Sorry for being noob, but how is this supposed to make iTunes love FLAC files? :/



None.

flac is a free lossless audio codec. Since it's a codec, media players use that codec to decode the compressed audio and play the raw data through your speakers. Many audio players have built in internal codec filters, but there are no media players which can play ever single file, so you have to rely on external filters. Any decent media player will search for the external codec installed on your system if the file will not play with the internal codecs. There's also usually a plugin folder to put the filter in.

Relatively ancient and inactive

That will, not, however, work with a media player. Even if it works with iTunes, it won't be able to sync flac files with an iPod.



None.

Something tells me it won't sync .flac files, but it will sync .mp3/mp4/any extension the iPod can recognize. Thus you should be able to put the flac files on the iPod by changing the extension. The iPod won't be able to read it without the filter installed though, and as far as I know, apple is incredibly closed source with their iPod OS, so there's no chance of getting the file to play on that OS. You can also just copy/paste the files onto the iPod, but of course, the iPod's OS doesn't recognize audio files transferred in that way.

I don't have any problems playing wma/vorbis/flac/mpg/aac/a52/mpc on my 30 GB iPod since I don't use the iPod OS.

Zoan shouted: TheHappy115 Oh, I mentioned in a thread but not the shoutbox, but it does work if you run SC in 32bit as suggested by Butch.
I found 64-bit SC broke all sorts of stuff, I never liked it
[12:21 pm]
No-Name-Needed-II -- Zoan Could it have something to do with the turn rate? I found recently the hard way that when I have too many unit orders triggered at once with hyper triggers on "I think it was Dynamic" It caused a crash similar to an EUD crash on non-eud maps.. -Also when does the map crash?? does it crash after briefing at start of game??? or does it crash when you use a spell???

TheHappy115 shouted: I had played spellsword on Remastered roughly 3 - 4 years and it worked fine so not sure why it doesn't work now. Big Rips. I know there is some form of trigger that detects whether its online or not but I imagine it has something to due with latency

TheHappy115 -- such as things like Center View work differently on online play (instant on online while single moves the screen slowly and pauses)

Butch -- prob some weird character on a string somewhere or something dumb like that
[2022-5-23. : 9:50 pm]
Ultraviolet -- It's weird indeed, not really sure what is so special about Spellsword that causes it to react differently on Remastered, usually EUDs are the cause of things like that
[2022-5-23. : 5:35 pm]
Zoan -- I haven't played in like 2 years so maybe something changed I don't know about

Zoan -- No-Name-Needed-II
No-Name-Needed-II shouted: Zoan No idea if anything changed.. I've made several maps that push TMOANC to the limit and they are still working.. 3 causes of it I've narrowed down are -Too many islands which some terrain on certain tilesets can create micro islands on cliff edges with basic isometric.. -Too many changes in elevation from high to mid to low ground.. -And too many tiles from certain doodads that block tank fire..
Any clue as to why a map which would previously work fine on past patches would now suddenly not work on the current remastered patch?
