Windows 7: best flac player?

01 Jan 2012   #11

Linux CENTOS 7 / various Windows OS'es and servers

Hi there
Winamp or VLC both work fine

Incidentally for a decent alternative to an Ipod as a portable player look at the tiny SANDISK SANSA clip+ or ZIP -- both REALLY CHEAP and can play FLAC straight out of the box as well as OGG VORBIS and all the other "usual suspects".

What I like about these hardware players too are is the fact you can insert a micro SD card (like those used in smart phones) as an extra storage device giving you up to an extra 32 GB as well so don't worry if the FLAC music takes more space than mp3.

Format the card as FAT32 however or the computer might not recognize it -- then simply drag 'n drop your flac files on to the device -- either the 8GB internal memory or the external micro sd card -- I'm using a 32 GB one --works fine.

Battery life is good too and Windows has no probs recognising the device

and happy new year

i've been using winamp since the dawn of time (1998 i think).

it plays flac files perfectly, but i don't know whether it's the "best" or just "my favourite".

Is there a lightweight FLAC player for Win7?
Up through Win XP Pro I was using Winamp to play my FLAC files. But even then I was using an older version of Winamp because I did not like the "kitchen sink" growth approach that Winamp was having.
