Converting 32 bit MLP to 32 bit FLAC?

view story

http://superuser.com – I have some .MLP files which I'd like to convert to .FLAC for easier playback. Examining the file with ffmpeg / avconv / mplayer, I get Stream #0.0: Audio: mlp, 96000 Hz, 5.1, s32 If I try to convert it with ffmpeg, I get this notification Incompatible sample format 's32' for codec 'flac', auto-selecting format 's16' Output #0, flac, to 'test1.flac': Metadata: encoder : Lavf53.21.1 Stream #0.0: Audio: flac, 96000 Hz, 5.1, s16, 200 kb/s Is there any way to get 32bit files from ffmpeg? Using ffmpeg version 0.8.13-4:0.8.13-0ubuntu0.12.04.1 (HowTos)
