    The music files were ripped from CD and encoded in FLAC compression level 8 (max compression). They played perfectly fine on my PC but on my NDS Lite (running moonshell 2.10), there were occasional skips or short high pitched noises during playback [​IMG] . Freezing sometimes happened when fast forwarding/backwarding a FLAC music file.

    I've tried the exact same songs in mp3 format (224kbps CBR) and FLAC compression level 5 (the default) and WAV (no compression) and there were none of the problems mentioned above.

    It seems that Moonshell 2.10 has a problem with music files encoded in FLAC at high compression levels. Is there any workaround for this issue (other than encoding at a lower FLAC compression level)? [​IMG]

    EDIT: Even FLAC files at compression level 5 are not spared playback problems I mentioned, after listening longer on my NDS Lite.

    So I'll just have to wait for a future version of Moonshell in which FLAC playback is improved?

    Moonshell has been finished, but try to convert the songs with iTunes to AAC!

    yeah I remember having some FLAC files but they always has weird noises in them at specific spots even though they played perfectly on my computer. I just converted them all to MP3s and everything was good

    No more newer versions of Moonshell coming out? [​IMG]
    If there are newer versions in development, I hope they resolve the FLAC playback issues (the same as high framerate and bitrate videos playback problems in the past).

    Exactly!

    Why would you want to listen to FLAC's from your DS? The quality would sound the same as 320kbs

    Or try TTA, which uses less CPU
