Installing Fluke makes iTunes play FLACs
In order to persuade Apple's iTunes software for the Mac to play FLAC files you need to install a small piece of software called 'Fluke'. Note that this does not allow you to burn FLACs to audio CD, nor will it allow your iPod to read them.
Once downloaded and installed on your Mac, follow the following steps:
- If you already have iTunes or Quicktime running, close them and only restart them after installing Fluke
- To play your FLACs in iTunes:
- drag your FLAC files onto Fluke or
- Right-click/Ctrl+click on the FLAC files you want to add to iTunes and choose Open With > Other.
- To make this the default for playing FLACs, in the Open With dialogue mark the "Always Open With" checkbox.
If you wish to burn FLACs to audio CDs, we recommend the small freeware CD writing package Burn - remember that 24-bit FLACs are not compatible with any audio CDs!
