Convert FLAC to AAC and other video formats to FLAC online, free


FLAC files cannot be opened on most Mac, iOS or Android devices. FLACs usually require plugins or conversions before you can open them without trouble. If you still want to open a FLAC file, then download VLC Media player on your device, or convert it to a more compatible format like MP3. However, FLAC still offers great quality audio, because its compression doesn't rob it of its quality. The FLAC compression reduces file size by over half, making it easy to store in your device or share over the internet. FLAC is an open-source and lossless compression format. Its full name is "Free Lossless Audio Codec".


AAC files are used for storing audio and music data in a higher quality. Due to improvements made to the AAC file, it has one-off the best sound qualities amongst audio file formats. AAC is also the default format for Apple's iTunes and iTunes Store. You can open AAC files on iTunes, Windows Media Player and VLC Media Player. Although AAC files can use the .aac extension, many AAC files are saved with the .m4a extension. This doesn't change the file type, but only the extension format. You can still open it as an AAC file, because AAC refers to the compression type. Its full name is 'Advanced Audio Coding' (AAC).
