I would like to play FLAC audio files, on any platform, with any free or non-free software.

Preferably I would like to play them on a ubuntu/debian compatible Linux desktop with good gnome-integration. But I just want to know IF any device or desktop software can play flac files at all.



Note that FLAC is only a container format (AFAIK), so that VLC may encounter embedded codecs it cannot decode.

Almost all music players with a decent GNOME integration will support FLAC, because they'll likely be using GStreamer for their decoding. (GStreamer should support FLAC anywhere)

Try Rhythmbox.
