Top community discussions about X Lossless Decoder

X Lossless Decoder (XLD) is a tool for OS X that is able to decode/convert/play various 'lossless' audio files. The supported audio files can be split into some tracks with cue sheet when decoding. XLD supports the following formats:

  • (Ogg) FLAC (.flac/.ogg)
  • Monkey's Audio (.ape)
  • Wavpack (.wv)
  • TTA (.tta)
  • Apple Lossless (.m4a) [10.4 and later]
  • TAK (.tak) [Requires Wine]
  • Shorten (.shn) [SHN v3 only]
  • AIFF, WAV, etc.

Other formats supported by Libsndfile are also decodable. XLD uses not decoder frontend but library to decode, so no
