I have a single .flac file that encompasses multiple tracks comprising a music album along with the corresponding .cue file. I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 with VLC player, and am trying to get VLC player to show the individual tracks and allow me to use the previous and next controls to move back and forth between tracks. The problem I'm having is that when I open the single .flac file with VLC, it just shows a single track the duration of the entire album, and I'm unable to skip back and forth between tracks. Is there any way to have VLC show the individual tracks contained within a .flac file without having to pre-split the .flac file into individual track files first?

You need to open in VLC the cue file that came with the flac, rather than the flac file.
If it's missing, that might be one reason that VLC is having problems detecting the multi-tracks.

If VLC still doesn't work even when the cue file is opened, see:

So the answer is: I don't know, VLC does not support multi-track FLAC files? – hakre Jan 13 '13 at 16:43
@hakre: The poster has abandoned his post, so we don't know the final resolution to his problem and whether it's related to his cue file or not. – harrymc Jan 13 '13 at 17:02
Might be, however this interesting question would remain. I tried to find out more, however tooling support is not really optimal. Just was commenting. – hakre Jan 13 '13 at 21:29
