FLAC support in Android

August 8th, 2009 by Guppy Leave a reply »

FLAC logoAndroid unfortunately does not currently support the FLAC audio codec but there is an effort underway to remedy this. Apparently it is not as straightforward as it should be to implement it since there are issues with both of the available decoder libraries, but in this enhancement request a contributor in comment 59 has made some patches that I hope have got around the problems and will make it into a future release of the OS.

UPDATE: FLAC is now supported natively in Android 3.1
