Currently the examples show how to encode WAV files to FLAC and vice-versa using both libFLAC and libFLAC++. Over time we'll be adding more examples.

<description>At $699 not your average media player, but this Astell &amp; Kern AK100 from iRiver Japan comes with support for WAV, FLAC, APE, OGG Vorbis and of course MP3 and stands out for being able of playing 192kHz/24-bit files, the latter being only possible when using either WAV of FLAC as file format. Beside using it as a (portable) media player, it can be used as DAC as well</description>

<description>Developers from Official.fm have built a nice piece of javascript-code that is able to decode FLAC-files. The code can be used to feed FLAC-data to the 'web-audio' API which is to be included in the HTML5 standard. This would enable FLAC-driven DJ-apps or audioeditors with HTML5.</description>
