Q: “Hello, All. I am a recent Mac convert, and although I love the capability, I do sometimes miss the flexibility. I collect live music, and have almost 2TB of FLAC files of various concerts and live performances. I have fallen hard for the convenience of playing files from iTunes through my home theater setup via Apple TV – it’s simple and sounds amazing.
- Is it possible to add FLAC files to a playlist using an iTunes plugin? Everything I see online suggests ‘no’, but it’s still worth asking, if only to vainly nudge Jobs’ Powers That Be toward real FLAC support.
- Is there a straightforward way to stream music from another system on my network? I know, for example, that I can open an internet radio station link in iTunes and stream it to my new Apple TV.” - Questions from Apple Support Communities.
