How to play FLAC on Android phones?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

I can't get anything higher than 16/44.1 to play on my new phone. I go to the music player and it shows it but no matter how many times I click it, it won't play. 

 

It's a Sony Xperia Z2. First Andriod ever, I got sick of iOS.

Poweramp will play all of your FLAC files very well.

In this french review of the Z2, they played 24/96 FLAC files with the default audio player. 192kHz files will not work though.

you realise that playing such super high res files is a bit pointless on a phone?

Media Monkey will also play FLAC just fine on androids

Sometimes the default music player will play it fine. The "Music" app on my LG works fine with flac. Doubletwist is free and plays them fine. Poweramp will also but it costs money.

thanks, didn't know it took another app to get it to work. I downloaded rocketplayer and it works great.

Neutron and Poweramp media players are the old favorites of audiophiles for playing flacs on Android. But there could certainly be some new apps out there that do it well too.
