    PiCorePlayer and WMA lossless

    I was settling in for a nice listen to some older recordings when I rediscovered that my PiCorePlayer won't play WMA. Very annoying.

    I remember encountering this before and received advice on what to do, but never implemented. Refresh my memory please.

    I don't want to convert the many files to flac if I can avoid it. What do I need to do to have the system play these?

    Just to be clear, I'm not using PcP as a player, but for streaming.

    I'm sure it's a task you can automate, and you'd be done for good with
    less effort than you'd think. Sometimes it's worth the effort. A lesson
    I have to learn myself again and again.
