Playing FLAC files with foo_upnp (as browser)
Hello:
I hope this is the right place to put this question.
Maybe there is a simple answer, but I can't find it. I started a UpNp media server on a computer in my home using TVmobili and I'm using Foobar2000 as a player on a notebook, using foo_upnp component.
Everything works fine with MP3 files and also with ALAC files (after installing ALAC support on Foobar, of course) even at 24/96 bitrate. I can't instead play FLAC files (obviously, standard FLAC files, 16/44.1, that I can play without problems on the same notebook). Simply, the Upnp browser on Foobar2000 shows the directories, but it don't put them on the playlist, as they were not supported, and unlike it does for MP3 or Alac contents. Have I to install some other components, or this functionality is simply not supported on foo_upnp and I must use a different player?
Or FLAC format is not supported on upnp connections, as I read somewhere?
The server PC is a Mac with Leopard and the notebook is a Vaio notebook with Windows 7
Any help will be very much appreciated.
