FLAC streaming

Unread post by tgdc » 14 Apr 2014, 22:51

I'd love to see the web player able to accept untranscoded lossless streams. I'm not sure how it is implemented but noticed that the FFMPEG project now have a FLAC.js in browser FLAC implementation if that could be utilized.

Would also like to see this implemented.

The FLAC.js decoder from FFMPEG is also available on github audiocogs/flac.js as a ported version working with the Aurora.js framework.

looks like a really good idea to me!
i love madsonic, but one of my huge issues with it is the limited ability to stream (at least in your home network) any file format. basically i keep xbmc on my machine in order to feed bitcorrect to my dac. what did i spend friggin' $1000 on, if i stream mp3-320 to it!? kinda defeats the purpose. one engine to stream online and one giving you max. quality, where possible would be a huge step forward!

cheers, L
