FLAC no longer plays streaming on Dropbox
« on: February 09, 2017, 11:08:28 AM »
I'm not sure when this change happened, but I just discovered that all of my FLAC files on Dropbox will now play streaming!  Previously, you had to download FLACs to play offline.

EDIT:  Looks like they removed FLAC support.  It's an open-source format, so I can't imagine why.

Very cool.

I think I noticed the same recently but promptly forgot all about it!

Well, this sucks.  Now Dropbox has removed FLAC previews - you have to download them to listen.  Boo.
