I don't feel comfortable with it like I do Linux or even Windows. They seem finicky with what they support if the software in any way relies on the core stuff, like quick time. I know that the flac capabilities of VLC and Songbird don't rely at all on Quick Time so compliance may be an issue. Then again, k3b (on Linux) and VLC/Songbird (on the mac) may just be more error tolerant, as you say. > > I'm not a media guru, but some out there might have some suggestions about > what other programs to try - that's the road I'd head down lat least.
