    Is there any app out there that plays flac files?

    no, FLAC is unsupported by webOS or any of its apps. However, an ampache server has the ability to transcode FLAC into mp3 or .aac so if you have any willingness to set up a server for yourself, you should check it out.

    Start by googling it and using forum help from ampache experts; once it is set up, get ampache mobile for your pre (I think it is in the app catalog now). Good luck.

    Ehh, that kinda defeats the purpose of a flac.
    I guess I'll stick with 320kbps

    Why not just covert FLAC to ALAC (which is supported on webOS devices)...

    No really there wouldn't be any loss in quality. FLAC is a lossless format and ALAC is a lossless format so no data would be lost perfect lossless conversion. Although this kind of sucks I know for sure you can play FLAC files in Audiophile HD I do it all the time. Plays almost everything, they play on Kalemsoft Media Player as well but sometimes just random static so I stick to Audiophile. Even does a nice index of them.

    Yeah, unless the converter you use happens to be buggy, there is absolutely no degradation of audio quality when going from FLAC to ALAC.

    Rule of thumb:
    Lossless to lossless = OK
    Lossless to lossy (eg. MP3 V0) = OK
    Lossy to anything = Bad
