I recently downloaded the watc shoot concert from the announce forum. I'm not quite sure wat to do. I know, using WINrar you extract it to another file and then its in FLAC format, but i cant open it. Can someone help me?

If you have used FLAC before then it's a matter of changing the .FLA extention to .FLAC then you should be okay. I'm not sure of any freeware that you can download to play FLAC. I use Nero with a FLAC codec and Jet Audio for playing FLAC.

You can go to the WinAMP site, and download the FLAC plug-in. That plays FLAC without any problems.

And just to clarify another thing.. FLA files are the same as flac, though they don't always show the icon and open like they should. Extensions get shortened to 3 digits sometimes.

If you have Winamp, right click on the file and select 'open with' and find Winamp, and choose 'always use the selected program...' or whatever it says :-P
