Hi All,

What audio player are folks using to play flac files? I have been using vlc
for some time but on my 12-current system when I updated to the latest head
code for both the system and ports and rebuilt everything I could no longer
get vlc to display/use X11 for its display (strictly command level). Here is
the uname -a for my system:

FreeBSD tavion.austin.ibm.com 12.0-CURRENT FreeBSD 12.0-CURRENT #6 r336172: Tue Jul 10 13:24:20 CDT 2018     bob at tavion.austin.ibm.com:/usr/obj/usr/src/amd64.amd64/sys/TAVION  amd64

I was wondering what other ports do we have that have functionality similar to
vlc. I've scanned through the multimedia directory at the ports in there but
there are alot of them and I was hoping someone could make a recommendation(s)
