Convert FLAC to M4A and other video formats to FLAC online, free


FLAC files cannot be opened on most Windows, Mac 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".


Audio files with the M4A extension are mostly used for storing songs purchased from the iTunes Store. M4A files are widely accepted by Apple, Android and Windows devices. Most media players on all devices can play M4A files. This makes them a popular format for storing songs on mobile devices. Although M4A and MP4 files are similar, they are not the same. They both use the MPEG4 codec, but M4A files can only store audio, whereas MP4 can store both video and audio. What’s more, M4A files are compressed using the ‘AAC’ lossy, which gives them a smaller file size than MP4.

Quality wise, FLAC is usually better because it is a “hi-res” format. However, files with the M4A extension can also have great quality sound if paired with a high-quality file compression format like AAC.
No, iTunes cannot play audio files encoded with FLAC. They must be converted to more compatible formats like MP3 or AAC.
M4A files created with the AAC compression are not lossless because AAC compresses the file. But if created with a lossless file type like ALAC, then the M4A will be lossless.
