What's the point?
=================
BASSFLAC is an extension to the BASS audio library, enabling the playing of
FLAC (Free Lossless Audio Codec) encoded files and streams.


Requirements
============
BASS 2.4 is required.


Using BASSFLAC
==============
The plugin system (see BASS_PluginLoad) can be used to add FLAC support to
the standard BASS stream (and sample) creation functions. Dedicated FLAC
stream creation functions are also provided by BASSFLAC.

The usage information in the BASS.TXT file (from the BASS package) is also
applicable to BASSFLAC and other add-ons.

TIP: The BASSFLAC.CHM file should be put in the same directory as the BASS.CHM
     file, so that the BASSFLAC documentation can be accessed from within the
     BASS documentation.


Latest Version
==============
The latest versions of BASSFLAC & BASS can be found at the BASS website:
