GV Browser does not see flac audio files
Is it correct that the GV Browser does not see flac audio files?

As far as I can figure, you are correct.
GVBrowser does not detect *.flac files

My guess is that GV browser doesn't show file types not managed by EDIUS. Unfortunately, FLAC is one of these.

I guess you're right. But looking at the screenshot, if I choose "all" files, I would really expect to see all files in a folder. I can accept if flac files are not shown when I choose "audio", even though this makes the GV Browser less useful for me.

It would indeed be a nice addition to have FLAC compatibility.

Surely it may come in the future as this is only the birth of the browser........

Then again I might take sometime to Implement.
Industry standard ASIO support in edius has been requested for since version 4 by myself and others maybe earlier on in Canopus days.......

Even the free MediaGo multimedia manager from Sony has it, albeit only for Sony propriety ASIO devices.

Well I would not be happy if "All files" displayed files that were not campatible with EDIUS.
Flac is still not a supported file.
I understand "All files" to mean All video, audio and image files that have been registered to the GV Browser as files compatible with and available to use in an EDIUS project.
There are quite a large number of file formats supported, as seen in the following screenshot.

OGG support surprises me, maybe still a hype there in Japan but the rest of the world stopped using that in the end 90's (Maybe MP3 pro has more users)

Never understood WMA (maybe M$ pushes hard for that)

At present there are only 2 widely used lossless audio formats FLAC and APE, both very good but FLAC most widely used.

"In my case *.flac 24_96 are shown - strange !" - I checked it again, my statement is wrong.
Since GV Browser does not show the file extension, it showed the *.wav files in the same folder.

Sorry ...

App settings could provide a toggle to display extensions.

The GV Browser would lose it's usefulness if it showed all file types.
The point is that it should only show files which can be used in EDIUS.

It is not Windows Browser, it is Grass Valley Browser.
