FLAC media player support?


Nov 6, 2013
Are there any media players for Win10 Mobile that support FLAC files? I just had my Cowon S9 die and I've been looking into other players but I keep seeing that Groove on my Insider Preview Lumia 925 plays FLACs. Just wondering if there isn't another player with different UI, that's all.

Not sure about other players since I don't use them. They're mostly bad. The only good one is VLC, and it does play FLAC. However I think you can only download the "old" app (for WP8.1), but they're making a UWP app, and it should release soon-ish.
But I'd suggest sticking with Groove. It looks the best, it works the best, no reason not to use it.
