Installed the public beta of macOS Sierra the other day and it breaks XLD.

I should have checked RoaringApps before, but didn’t. So XLD is broken, I bought some ALAC encoded files via qobuz and can’t transfer them to the old streamer that only plays FLAC files. ffmpeg.org to the rescue, but this is a command line tool and I had to figure out how to loop over a bunch of files in a given directory with a bash script. Not a big deal, but automation is always a good thing and I learned something useful along the way.
