Hello! First off...thank you Richard and whoever else donates the newest slew of concert video/audio...can't wait to get them all (and yes...once I get the new bittorrent program, I will seed EVERYTHING I have :-) ). My question is about the latest audio dl. I know what FLAC is, but I'm just curious as to what program to use to play it? I tried using iTunes but it wouldn't convert it. How does everyone else listen? Again..thanx for the wonderful goodies (feels like Christmas!).

Winamp <www.winamp.com> has plenty of FLAC plugins which can also be downloaded from the site. That's what I use.

I use Flac Frontend to convert the files to wav so that I can use them how I choose.

If you are on a Mac, google for MacFlac to convert them to AIFF, which you can then convert to MP3 in iTunes.

The concept of FLAC is great, with the lossless encoding, but for the life of me I can't figure out why bootleggers have decided on this format, when the source audio really doesn't NEED this high-end compression.
