How to play .flac files in Windows

Windows

It’s pretty straight forward – just download and install Winamp and the Flac with library support plug-in for Winamp. Neither program is difficult to install; you’ll mostly just click Next a bunch of times. After they’re installed, just double-click any of your .flac files and Winamp will open and start playing them.

    I think what yoblet was trying to say is that itunes for windows doesn’t play .flac files by default and we’d like to know how to get it to do so
