Rockbox doesn't use the standard FLAC decoder, so that's a possible
source of incompatibility. It should be possible to see the version by
using metaflac, Foobar2000 or even a hex editor...

As for other codecs, Vorbis was recently synced, when there were some
minor changes upstream. And I've heard rumors that MPC might be updated
soon.
