Feeds 4 room systems, either synched or something different to each room. VLC good for video but not great for music. I started with iTunes many years ago, but find it very bloated now. I also like cuetools for minor repairs.
    Hi. No, not the software player. I mean the software in those hardware. Before ATV4K, I had two Blu-Ray players with FLAC support. None of them did gapless. Album art, curiously is implemented with Audio CD only. I do have fb2k, but then we are talking about using a computer to play music, which is not the focus here (at least not in the way I'm expressing myself). I think I expressed myself not very well... I am doing a comparison about small consumer media boxes (Popcorn Hour, Western Digital, Etc).
    or desk players such as Blu-Rays.

    yes we are talking about different things I think. But there are many hardware units (servers and players) with embedded software that plays flac perfectly. LMS, roon labs, etc. I havenít used a Blu-ray or DVD or CD player to play burned CDs in over 20 years.
