Can someone give me some advice on the best way to deal with FLAC files on a PC running Windows XP?

Is there anything that has an iTunes-like interface?

Nothing with iTunes interface, but I use either Foobar2000
(www.foobar2000.org) which I personally think is wondrous, or Winamp.

J River Media Center is about the closest to iTunes I've found, it supports FLAC via a plugin. I have version 10 (11 is out now I think) and it's good, but a little buggy with FLAC. 11 is supposed to be better but I'm not really happy about paying $30 to find out. If it wasn't for the bugginess I'd love it, very powerful interface and great for mass tagging etc. Works fine with mp3, vorbis, etc.

^^^ Thanks, I'll check out both of those.

As I mentioned in an another thread, I'm also looking for a way to run slimserver from my mac in addition to the PC. Hence any software that makes this easier to do is also a big plus.

When these programs build playlists etc, can they be seen from a program that runs on a mac?

Thanks,
Mike

I like the interface of this program, but when I rip a CD in FLAC, I get errors in tagging the files.
