FLAC player app for iphone
« on: October 10, 2020, 09:28:14 AM »
What can you recommend to play downloaded flac files through an app on your iphone?  And is there a desktop interface where you can manage and edit the files. 
Currently i subscribe to Google Play and store my library there.  However they are transitioning soon to Youtube Music and I don't like the way their music storage works.  From what I can tell there isn't really a way to upload and edit music like there is in Google Play.  I like to have the albums (live shows) organized a certain way and sometimes I need to edit the albums/songs and Google Play allows for that. 
Thank you.

I used Flac Player on my Ipod.  I was happy with it.

Onkyo HF Player! If you buy the $10 add on, you then can play 24 bit flac and even DSD files.
Been using this for 5 years now. Files can be added or subtracted via Itunes

CloudBeats Pro has been my go to for years.  Doesn't require iTunes syncing...can just link a Google Drive, Dropbox, OneDrive, or numerous other cloud/NAS services and stream or download for offline listening.

Re: Vox, Cloudbeats Pro, and the ability to avoid syncing with iTunes.

Is the only way to transfer the files to the iPhone through a Cloud based account? Can you also drag/drop the files to the device somehow?

I plug the iPhone directly into the computer (I have mac), and use Music which is the new name for the program formerly known as iTunes, then drag and drop.
I have not used "the cloud" to add any of my own music to my phone, though I've purchased a track from the iTunes store a couple of times, as I needed them for other people's projects.

Thanks. I should have mentioned I am on a PC/Windows. I'm aware of the iTunes > Music transition, but I think iTunes is still the software interface for Windows. I have a lot of music on the phone currently, but it always seems like a monumental task when it comes around the changing things up, especially on a fresh install of iTunes where you're effectively required to swipe clean the music on the phone to start a new library (aside from 3rd party apps I don't really want to mess with).

Are you iPhone/PC users who are using the above apps avoiding the iPhone's Music app altogether?

I avoided the music/itunes app and put everything on VOX and google drive. The music/itunes app was so buggy that I wanted to avoid it. I have all my stuff backed up locally and in the cloud as a side benefit. Not sure how PC/iPhone might function though.

^ So, the VOX app acts as the player as well, correct? That sounds like a viable method. I have access to a MS OneDrive account so may look into the syncing method that way.

Vox you upload to their server. Kinda a PITA for large libraries. Cloudbeat player just reads from you OneDrive.

All of my music lives in a FreeNAS box running Plex.  I have found that PlexAmp works really well to play music.  Otherwise, I use the Plex app to play video.

I've always wanted to setup something like this but never have gotten around to learning what I need to do. I mainly just want a place to have MP3s/FLACs of my recordings and other music that I can "host" here on my home network that could then be accessed elsewhere by myself and others.

but basically, following something like this: https://www.devroom.io/2020/02/28/building-a-diy-home-server-with-freenas/ would be a good place to start, huh?

i run plex as well but i dont use it as much as i used to. For music ive been digging my sysnology NAS and raspberry pi running volumio. I run usb > DAC > Stereo. the raspberry pi runs the server and acts as the front end. I sometimes get drops on 24/192 material but im using it over wifi in an out building in my yard. never an issue with lesser bit rates.

I used to run logitech squeeze touch. the pi solution is more along those lines. Mine is just a dumb head but you can add screens etc and they can do a lot more than just tunes. volumio supports multiple devices if you have more than one pi etc. Im not married to volumio, it was just one of the first i tried. the pi is nice that the build runs on a micro sd card so you can swap out cards if you want to test other builds without much hassle.
