Need help to cast lossless.

My entire library is ALAC. I want to cast lossless music to my Chromecast. This is the transcoding line I have tried to use: ffmpeg -i %s -v 0 -map 0:0 -c:a flac -f flac -
On DSUB, every song length is misinterpreted so every song skips before it ends.
Does anyone know a solution for this?

I know others have gotten FLAC working locally, but I'm not sure with what transcoding lines. If it is FLAC -> FLAC, you can just turn off FLAC transcoding altogether and IF your device supports FLAC natively it will work. If it does not support it natively no amount of transcoding voodoo is going to fix that. As for casting lossless, take a look at While it lists FLAC as a supported codec, it does not list it as a supported container so it might not work in the first place.
