I've downloaded and installed http://www.xiph.org/quicktime/ and done these steps
(Running Windows XP SP2 - iTunes 7.0.1.8 (latest) )

!Win32 Installation
=============

Copy XiphQT.qtx file to the 'QTComponents' sub-folder of your base QuickTime installation directory. Typically it means:

C:\Program Files\QuickTime\QTComponents


You may need to create the 'QTComponents' folder if it doesn't already exist in your QuickTime installation.

So how do play flac or ogg files ? If I try to 'add file to library' the .ogg file doesn't show up. Am I missing a step ? There's something stupid I am not doing. I'm sure I;ve had Itunes play .ogg before though I can't find an older version of the plugin.

REBOOT ! That seemed to work. :-( If only Itunes was ported to Linux.... Windows is so annoying.

No I can play .ogg and .flac in iTunes I'm a lot happier.

Of course, another problem, I can't stream Flac to Airport Express. I thought the Flac plugin for Itunes decoded Flac to WAV ?!
