Is music quality manipulated over the web client?

All my music is in FLAC format and I have been using the web client to play it quite a bit lately on various devices. Only one of them has the correct codecs installed to decode FLAC. What I am surprised at is how good the music sounds on everything.

 

Are the LAV filters decoding the steam and then allowing it to be streamed across the network (no transcoding) at its full bitrate or is there some compression involved?

 

Either way, I am impressed!

Lav filters are used for locally played material on the computer that Lav is installed on (depending on client - MBC, MBT).  Anything streamed is re-encoded using ffmpeg.exe

Not always. we'll just stream the original file as-is when it's possible to do so.

That explains why is sounds so good - nice work.
