Default Hammersmith torrent...

So I downloaded the torrent successfully on my mac - but all the files are .flac (I have no idea if all torrent files end up like this, this is the first time i've done this torrent lark...) Basically, how can I then play them on a mac?

Do I need to download a programme, and if so which one?

I really want to hear this gig again!
Thanks to anyone who can help x

What I did is downloading the VLC media player, it is brilliant and plays songs & videos in lots of different formats!
Have a look at http://www.videolan.org/vlc/

oooh that looks good, but I don't know which one i'm supposed to download!
I've clicked that my operating system is Mac Os X, but errr, then it comes up with a big list with locations for each. Which do i choose?

hello fellow mac user!

i use the freeware "Switch" which is a nifty lil application that converts FLAC (and other files) to mp3s, wavs, etc

very easy to use

Switch download page

Yep, SWITCH far far far better and easier to use than xACT.

Depending on what you want to do, you can make either WAVs or MP3s directly...

Hi all,

I have been trying for ages trying to get membership for the site that's hosting this torrent. Obviously I haven't been successful. For those of you that have managed to download the Hammersmith gig, would any of you be willing to burn me a copy if I were to send you a blank cd, paid envelope etc?

Thanks for any help.

I managed to register after about a day of pressing refresh haha - I don't intend to use the site that much anyway, so I'll pm you my username and p/w if you want, and we can share the account.

I've tried for the last few weeks to register but alas no luck - I don't spose you'd be so kind as to extend that offer of PM you user name/pw to me? Seeing Cannonball unplugged was easliy the most amazing experience ever and I want to re-live it again again. It brought a tear to my japs eye
