When it plays - silently - what codecs does VLC detect? Somewhere in the menus.

You want it to mention 'lossless' or 'flac'. On Linux it encapsulates it in ogg file - which is a 'container format' - i.e. a way of including audio, video, subtitles, pictures, what-have-you, in a single file.

(Just listening to Brahms #2 here - but on DAB, not the interbet.)
