Hello everybody.
Someone of you did know why not every FLAC files are playable with walkman?
Every files are made by EAC with same settings but for two albums it say *Unable to play this file*

it's a little bit strange, didn't is?

I'm comparing the two files. could be the bitrate? is the only thing that changes..

Well... I think the problem could be the bitrate or the dac converter of the phone which works in "native" mode with walkmam app, but with poweramp use the software render, not native instruction.

Sorry for my bad english

What is the bitrate and sample rate? Android can choke on FLAC files with a sample rate of 48KHz

change flac audio bitrate
You can use Avdshare Video Downloader to Change audio bitrate and then convert FLAC to other audio formats, like to AAC, OGG, MP3, WAV, AIFF, M4A, AC3, etc.

It could be to do with the encoding method - there is more than one implementation of the FLAC encoder.
Did you get these files from different sources / use different methods to encode them?
