FLAC to MP3: why and how

There are few MP3 players that will play a FLAC file. Total Audio Converter supports WAV, AC, OGG, OFR, MP4, MPC, APE and many other formats, as well as FLAC and MP3.

So, you have ripped some files from a source and stored them as FLAC files. FLAC stands for Free Lossless Audio Codec. This means you have made a great choice because the file type compresses the size of the file without reducing the sound quality of the audio. You can create your mix playlist, store it and enjoy the same quality as if it had just been recorded in the studio. A perfect way to pull together a gift for your loved one’s birthday or an anniversary. It is open source; it offers quality, but…

There is always a but, right? Well, this one is significant. You prepare the playlist for the hot date, but it won’t play. There are few MP3 players, whether on a computer or mobile device, that will play a FLAC file. In other words, high quality but with limited playback options. You may get CD quality with half the space taken, but you cannot just play it anywhere.
