I have got many FLAC music stored on my USB, and now I want to play them on my Android phone. But some of them can be successfully played on it while some can not. Why and is there a solution?

FLAC, as one of famous lossless audio format, is favored by many audio fans as their audio archive format. As we know that FLAC is not supported by many portable devices, but with the FLAC increasing popularity, many portable devices have added FLAC support. For example, the relatively newest iPhone X/8 Plus/8/7 Plus/7 can all natively play FLAC audios. The same thing also happens to Android devices.

The FLAC encoder has been equipped with Android 4.1+ and FLAC decoder has been equipped with Android 3.1+, which means many Android devices these days support to play FLAC audios, but with some limitations. The FLAC for playing on Android must be Mono/Stereo (no multichannel), 16-bit recommended; no dither applied for 24-bit, etc. So if your FLAC is not compliant with Android supported FLAC standard you will fail to play your FLAC on Android.
