I prefer ape. Almost of my data are ape files. I have a problem with flac, and this is the reason I choose ape.
I downloaded a 200Mb flac file + a cue file. When I enqueued cue in fb2k, play, my cpu usage rised to 100% in 4-5s.
I embed the cue into flac, hope the problem would disappear. When I click "ok" to embed , cpu usage started to rise again ... this time in >10s
I tried w/ another 200Mb ape file + cue. No problem.
I'm finding a "flac to ape" converter 'cause only a little of my music are flac. It'll take a bit.
