I saw on the FAQ for beatunes that there was partial FLAC and OGG support, but im still not able to add those files into beatunes. Is there any way you can tell me how to incorporate those file types into my library?

    Hi Michael,

    because iTunes does not support OGG or FLAC, they are only supported in directory based libraries. To create one, open the beaTunes preferences and click on the little plus button under the name of the currently used library.

    Analysis and inspection of OGG and FLAC are supported, however, the little player in the Get Info context menu is not working all the way, like it should. That's what's meant with partial.

    Hope this helps,
