Description Zuirdj 2005-04-05 19:38:44 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.6) Gecko/20050328 Firefox/1.0.2 Fedora/1.0.2-3

Description of problem:
Since xmms goes to extras and maybe bmp will go to core, we need capability to read *.flac format in bmp.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. launch bmp
2. try to play a *.flac file
3. not sound at all :-)

Comment 1 Ralf Ertzinger 2005-04-06 10:19:33 EDT
There is no "official" FLAC plugin for BMP right now, but a hacked up version of
xmms-flac exists. I will look into it and see if it is possible to make a
bmp-flac package from it. No promises, though.
Comment 2 Zuirdj 2005-04-06 11:31:16 EDT
Thanks for the effort.
Comment 3 Thorsten Leemhuis 2005-06-27 11:29:26 EDT
This would require that flac would be in extras -- is that legally possible?
afaik not, but maybe I'm wrong
Comment 4 Ralf Ertzinger 2005-06-27 11:34:07 EDT
FLAC is in Core.
Comment 5 Thorsten Leemhuis 2005-06-27 11:45:50 EDT
/me was confused: faac != flac

Comment 6 Matthias Saou 2005-07-22 09:43:47 EDT
Any news on this? Ralf : Had time to hack some more on the plugin?
Comment 7 Ralf Ertzinger 2005-07-30 14:00:00 EDT
The hacked-up version is a major mess. I have written a new version from scratch
which has today produced the first recognizable stream of audio from a .flac
file, so it is time to release it onto the unsuspecting public.
Get the tarball here:


This is a source-only release, you will have to compile this yourself. The code
is alpha quality and misses features.
Read the README file before use.

Comment 8 Matthias Saou 2005-08-01 12:51:11 EDT
Maybe you should inform the bmp developers and have it listed on the official
plugins page so that it gets some testing from many users?
Comment 9 Ralf Ertzinger 2005-08-01 13:06:19 EDT
For the time being I'll be happy if it works for anyone besides me. The code is
not ready yet for broad distribution.
Comment 10 Ralf Ertzinger 2005-11-28 04:11:01 EST
bmp-flac2 is available in Fedora Extras devel now.
