Fluke was once a good idea but it's long gone. For anyone interested, there are apps that play FLAC such as Cog (even if it hasn't been updated for years, it's 64 bits and still runs on 10.9.5) and Vox, amongst others.

It is a pity that Fluke does NOT work with Mountain Lion. And to make matters worse, it looks like the development has stopped. Fluke still works with Lion and lower. But make sure you have the xiph qt decoders installed. (They must be downloaded and installed separately). And for Lion users, make sure you are running iTunes in 32-bit mode. (Right Click on iTunes in the Applications folder and click on Run in 32-bit mode".)

I wonder how many people miss the fact that they may need the Xiph QuickTime Decoders http://xiph.org/quicktime/download.html in order to Fluke to work properly. I had several issues, but missed that I had previously installed Xiph in the main /Library/Components folder in my former system and not in my user ~/Library/Components folder. That is where I put this component As soon as I had installed the "XiphQT 0.1.9 (Mac OS X, only decoders)" in my fresh and updated Mac OS X 10.6.8 Snow Leopard system, Fluke 0.2.5b started to work again. Xiph requires QT 7. If you want to retain the FLAC-file for whatever reason Fluke is indispensable. Fluke should be distributed with a link to Xiph! Macupdate, please add this vital requirement!

Fluke is a nice software Though FLAC is open-source and royalty-free format, it is not a compatible audio format with iTunes and with all Apple devices. In order to import FLAC to iTunes, a recommended solution is to convert FLAC to Apple friendly audio formats so that you can play FLAC with iTunes, iPad, the new iPad 3, iPhone and iPod, etc. If you care the quality of the output audio, converting FLAC to Apple Lossless audio is recommended. If you do not care about the quality of the music, you can convert FLAC to MP3, a versatile audio format across system and devices then import the converted FLAC files to iTunes. Just google search Step by Step Guide on How to Import FLAC to iTunes, you will find a nice simple solution

Fluke allows me to put and play FLAC-files to my iTunes library, which I use as a source for Traktor DJ software, which does play FLAC natively. For this it's indispensable and it works well for about 90% of my files, which has simplified my life considerably.

If you have iTunes 10.6.3 and Fluke gives you the AttributeError: Unknown property, element or command: 'add' you can solve this by downgrading to 10.6.1. Just run the installer available at: http://appldnld.apple.com/iTunes10/041-4792.20120328.fRhny/iTunes10.6.1.dmg

Received iTunes error message each time attempted to add to library as apple lossless file. Tried to re-downloading file, adding file from different locations, but nothing seemed to work. Finally just deleted file. Good riddance fluke! XLD was just as simple to use and worked the first time! What good is "free" if the product doesn't work!

I just posted that this does not work for Lion and iTunes 10.4, but this is not true. You have to tell iTunes to run in 32-bit mode since the update switched it to 64-bit mode. I found this fix in this thread: http://groups.google.com/group/flukeformac/browse_thread/thread/9fb06519a53a92ba

Works fine, except for flac files with their file names and tags containing non western characters like japanese. All you will see is a large amount of questionmarks.

Anyone else having trouble getting the track numbers to show up? This is so close to a workable solution but the lack of track numbers (and artwork) kills it.

No art = not worth the trouble. I've written developer a couple times. No response.

I have tried it over and over and I always gave up due to the lack of artwork support... So, here is a question to anyone who is already using it: does Fluke has managed to solve this issue or is this still (and maybe forever) a problem? I'm asking because I have already installed it several times just to check for this and every time I had to uninstall...
