I've read the whole thread. I thought I'd be able to find a command line decoder that benefits from the officialy open-sourced Apple Lossless Audio Codec.
If I understand correctly, so far there is none.

@ saratoga: Thanks.  I've already found this page but not read quite carefully to find it out.
Sorry for my poor English, I'm trying to get better... ;)

Hi!

Does anyone know if FFMPEG and/or AVLIB's ALAC encoder is the reference implementation released by Apple in october 2011, or do they still use a reverse engineered one from pre-2011?

(yes, I know about the "refalac"-encoder, but that one is Windows only.)

refalac works with Wine.

ffmpeg does not use reference implementations in general, so I doubt they would ever do this.
