    I’m now days using iTunes, and I only have 320kbps mp3-files streamed from my Firefly server. Since I’m putting my soul into my music library, I’m dependent to sound quality. I’m gettin’ down to a lot of flac downloads, but I allways have to convert it to some other lossy format, as until now mp3.

    Even though I’m not using the on-the-fly transcoding into wav, I believe I should be able to stream the real deal through a player supporting flac files.

    Any suggestions ? Something that could be compared to iTunes, just far more codecs?

    Grateful for any tip ๐Ÿ™‚


    Rhythmbox or also Banshee support DAAP (client AND server) and also a lot of codecs.
    They are limited to run on Linux, however.
    There are always talks of a win32 port, but that, if its ever done, will take quite some effort (let alone time).

    What platform are you on?


    Hi, thanks for the input ๐Ÿ™‚

    Well, on my media computer I’m running XP. So that wouldn’t be a issue in that case. A curious plan contains buying a Mac Mini though. But won’t happen in long. Works quite fine as it is. Just keep ’em coming, and I can download and try a few players you might suggest ๐Ÿ™‚



    The only windows DAAP client that i know of is


    Unfortunately pretty basic java proggy, without support for anything else than mp3.

    Theres also a terrible buggy plugin for winamp, but thats more pain than anything else.



    Well that’s too bad.
    I’ve got iTunes for windows at least. But without the flac-support. Unless I of course try to set up the transcoding. But I’d rather wait until it get’s more developed. Would’nt it be a temp good choice? :p

    Don’t wanna screw things up NOW. Ain’t got the time for screw-ups these days :p


    Did you try this ;


    Unfortunalty it does not work through DAAP & did not achive to work it out for .flac … but I can know read .ogg … I did not go further yet.


    If you’re stuck on Windows, then why not give ml-daap [1] a try?
    It’s a winamp plugin that basically adds each DAAP-share into Winamp’s media library.
