I'm trying to play some .flac files using PySide's Phonon module (on Mac if it makes a difference) but it's not an available mimetype for playback. Is there a way to enable this or a plugin I need to install?
Phonon does not directly support audio formats but uses the underlying OS capabilities. The answer therefore depends on if there is a service registered for the mime type
audio/flac. For me there is and here is a short example script to find out:
from PySide import QtCore from PySide.phonon import Phonon if __name__ == '__main__': app = QtCore.QCoreApplication() app.setApplicationName('test') mime_types = Phonon.BackendCapabilities.availableMimeTypes() print(mime_types) app.quit()
