Fluke is a small utility for Mac OS that lets you play FLAC files right within iTunes.

Features

16bit/44.1KHz playback
Multiple file and folder handling (the latter from command line only at the moment)
Track number and count support
Known issues

Mac OS X 10.7 Lion Support: is incomplete at this time. To make Fluke run, go into your Applications, right-click on iTunes, head to Get Info, and check off "Open in 32-bit Mode".
Only 16bit/44.1KHz files play fine. Any other resolution affects the speed of playback which is a known Xiph.org issue.
Embedded artwork is not supported. However if you've got an iTunes Store account, select the songs you added, right-click and hit Get Album Artwork.
iPod, iPhone, iPad, Airport Express, Apple TV and other devices from Apple are NOT supported — Fluke uses a third-party library not available on those devices.
CD burning does not work for the same reason as the above.

Today the compressed music tracks become a past thing, so more and more people are listening to audio files in lossless format. This format means that the track was compressed, but without any loss in quality.

The most popular lossless format is FLAC, and in this article I want to tell how to play FLAC files on Mac.

Apple has developed its own lossless format – ALAC, but FLAC for Mac is also very popular. However, the operating system doesn't recognize this format and doesn't allow you to listen to the music in perfect quality. There is a tricky way of how to open FLAC files on Mac, using the disk mounter software – a program that mounts virtual images. I would like to tell you about this interesting tip on the example of DAEMON Tools for Mac.

So, how to play FLAC files on Mac with DAEMON Tools?
Download and install DAEMON Tools for Mac from the program's official site. Note that you can try the functionality of the software for free during the first 20 days.

DOWNLOAD
20-day trial
Frankly speaking, DAEMON Tools isn't able to play FLAC files on Mac, because this program opens only disk images, and not the music ones. So at the end you will still need iTunes or other media player. However, without a disk mounter FLAC files are not recognizable by the players. Each audio CD that was compressed in FLAC format is presented by two files – .flac and .cue. It may sound strange, but to open FLAC files on Mac, you need the second one, which has .cue extension.

The pair of files with .flac and .cue extensions forms an image file – virtual audio CD. If you follow my tips on how to play FLAC files on Mac, you will actually mount an image and then will open a virtual copy of the disk. This operation is similar to the insertion of a real audio CD to the physical drive. Here is an instruction, how to play FLAC on Mac:
