Looped FLAC? by Kurausukun at 2:32 AM EDT on October 30, 2015
Just wondering--is there any looped version of FLAC (or any other lossless format) that is recognized by vgmstream or some other foobar plugin?

For vgmstream, you can use a .pos file with .wav, which provides loop info, I think you can create a .pos with vgmtoolbox. There are also a few ways to put loop info in a .wav directly, such as the smpl chunk; vgmstream supports the .lwav extension so that the default .wav support in Winamp or whatever doesn't handle the file without the loop.

.pos+.wav is the best bet right now. Someone implemented flac support long ago but I never integrated it.

Doesn't FLAC allow you to set a LOOP_START= LOOP_END= like OGG files? Like how PSO used loop points with OGG?

But what players support that?

I know vgmstream supports those tags with .logg, but good point.

I was hoping for a compressed lossless format since uncompressed audio takes up tons of space, but beggars can't be choosers. Thanks for the info.

You can compress .wav files using Microsoft ADPCM and loop points function correctly, like in the Source Engine games.

That's about the best I can do for ya. :(

FLAC supports loop points kinda "natively" through the use of a RIFF sampler chunk. BUT most (if not all?) players ignore it. I know exactly one program, which is not a player, that actually reads the sampler chunk and sets the loop points correctly.

I did some search and found THIS AMAZING SOLUTION for foobar2000, but only the source code available.I don't know how to compile a dll, so hope you guys can have a look at this and share your compiled dll fb2k component. Here is the README
