play it
« on: August 12, 2008, 11:24:33 pm »
thanks to the TTD for the info:

How can I listen to the lossless files that I downloaded?
The Trader's Den limits lossless file trading to file formats that are usable across the three major computer platforms, Linux, Windows, and Macintosh. If you've downloaded a lossless audio fileset from SR, it will be in either FLAC, SHN, or APE format as these are the only formats with broad cross-platform support.

Please note that if you choose to burn this music to an audio CD that you should always keep backups of the ORIGINAL lossless files, exactly as you recieved them. There are errors that can occur during CD burning and ripping which alter the audio. To keep the music as pure as possible always keep a data CD, data DVD, or backup hard drive with the original files and md5/ffp checksums for trading. Burn to audio CD, compress to lossy formats, etc only for personal use. Never trade or give to someone else CDs burned from lossless files or files compressed to lossy formats as it pollutes the trading pool.

Here's a lost of some of the more popular ways that traders play back their lossless audio files.
Winamp (PC)
foobar2000 (PC)
Pure Audio (Macintosh)
MacAmp (Macintosh)
Audio CD
any Knopfler, Floyd or Dylan will do....

I highly recommend foobar2k_0.8.3.201.  Small software, easy use, and colorful icons for different format of music.

Anyone know a good freeware app for converting FLAC files to MP3 on Windows Vista.  I have tried FreeRip, which although 'free' has some annoying limitations!

Both of these are really handy to have.   I've had TLH for a while, and Pottel just turned me on to Foobar.   I haven't worked with Foobar much yet, but TLH is pretty user friendly, except for that blank screen at first.   ???You have to select an action.
But a spoonful of forgiveness
Goes a long, long way
And we all should do our best
To get along

foobar2000 is small, simple, but I couldn't find where the volume adjustment is  :-[

yes you can, at the top, next to the song progression bar.
also, there are some interesting plug ins for foobar, for example one that shows what you are listening to in that moment if you are on the hub (to all people in the hub)
sort of:
now playing: Sultans of Swing/1985.10.11 Uniondale
or something of that sort.
