Flac may be available on your system, but that doesn't mean SDL_sound KNOWS it 
is...  it could be interpreting it as raw.  Try 'playsound --decoders' to see 
if FLAC is really supported.

Did you install SDL_sound from source, or just install a binary?  And if you 
installed from source, was FLAC-devel available?

Lastly, what version of FLAC do you have installed?  I seem to recall some 
trouble with FLAC constantly breaking it's interface between versions; 
SDL_sound might need the latest version.
