    I know that there has been work done to make .flac support possible for earlier builds of Android, but I'm using Android 2.0. I also don't want to root my phone (once that becomes possible for the Droid).

    Is there any chance that .flac will be supported via an app? Are any app developers working on a player that supports .flac? I would pay money for such an app, if it existed.

    Thanks!

    Let's not just limit this to 2.0 users, but rather share it for all Android users. I too am desperately wanting FLAC support for my Android!!

    Try andless. Works on my htc hero.

    andless - Project Hosting on Google Code

    Description:

    This audio player can play lossless files (FLAC/APE/MPC/WV), or any files directly supported in Android.
    Now supports Apple lossless files (in M4A container) as well.
    CUE sheets and playlists are also supported, please read the Wiki pages for details.

    I must be doing something wrong. I get an error whenever I try to play a .flac file on my Incredible with andless. :thinking:

    Then again, I do have the software to convert .flac to .mp3. It's not like I have a set of Polk speakers riding on my shoulders.

    Meridian media player supports flac without rooting. They flac files don't show up in the "library" but using the built in file browser and selecting the song works. There is a free version and a pay version.

    While it is not the native OS support for FLAC we all hope to see in Froyo, FLAC support is available from the variously named models coming to all four major carriers under the Samsung Galaxy S umbrella. The Samsung music player loaded on these phones supports (from the website):

    Music Player with SoundAlive
    3.5mm Ear Jack
    MP3/AAC/AAC+/eAAC+/OGG/WMA/AMR-NB/AMR-WB/WAV/
    MID/AC3/IMY/FLAC/XMF

    Maybe that player will be portable to other 2.1 platforms??

    I'm playing flac audio on my Captivate right now. It sounds AWESOME. The only problem is that it doesn't read all the tags. Still missing artist and album art.
