NIN Ghost, FLAC, and Songbird; Oh my!

Posted on March 13, 2008

I’ve been a big Xiph fan since their beginning. When I wrote ePlayer, which became Euphoria, I opted against the popular multi-CODEC libraries and instead developed directly against libogg, libvorbis, and friends. The folks at Xiph just write beautiful code and know how to make developer friendly APIs.

With the revolutionary release of Nine Inch Nails: Ghost I-IV I can’t tell you how excited I was to see a FLAC option! Armed with beautiful tunes in the worlds best loss-less format, I can’t use iTunes even with the Xiph Quicktime element… so what should I do?

Use Songbird of course!

If you haven’t supported NIN and FLAC, do so now!.
