Try http://corecodec.org/projects/coreflac and any DirectShow based 
player ( like WMP 6.4 ) , but i dont know if Toff had the time already 
to add a async_reader sourcefilter structure, and this would be required 
if the filter should connect to the HTTP streaming filter from M$.

The only other solution i am aware of is the old MediaXW project of Ingo 
Ralf Blum, but i am not sure if the very old version on sourceforge is 
capable of playing FLAC already, and he improved the filter closed 
source on his home PC, disappointed from the lack of interest from other 
developers in what he was trying to do ....
