Hi everyone,

I know it's not very polite to register here just to ask for votes, but in case you care about FLAC, you may be interested. The famous audio streaming and playback app Spotify refuses to support FLAC claiming it's "still a relatively uncommon format". I don't know what's your opinion about Spotify, but given the impact it has on nowadays audio listeners, it would be great that FLAC format was able to be played. It's not my petition indeed, I'm just one of the supporters, but I think it's important to spread the word and certainly it needs some push from people who don't know its existence:

Of course you'll need to register there, but it's not big deal. Thanks in advance and sorry if I bothered you,

Allvoxman.

Are those transcoded from the Vorbis files they use for streaming?
