FLAC to WMA: Convert Audio from FLAC(Free Lossless Audio Codec) to WMA(Windows Media Audio) with River Past Audio Converter, FLAC2WMA converter, conversion

What is FLAC?

FLAC stands for Free Lossless Audio Codec, an audio format similar to MP3, but lossless, meaning that audio is compressed in FLAC without any loss in quality. This is similar to how Zip works, except with FLAC you will get much better compression because it is designed specifically for audio.

FLAC is a free lossless audio format. It differs from MP3, WMA, MP4 and other formats with lossy compression because it does not cause quality loss. However, the compression ratio is lower.

To convert FLAC audio to other formats with River Past software, you will need to install either CoreFlac or DC-Bass Decoder.

What is WMA?

Short for Windows Media Audio, a Microsoft file format for encoding digital audio files similar to MP3 though can compress files at a higher rate than MP3. WMA files, which use the “.wma” file extension, can be of any size compressed to match many different connection speeds, or bandwidths.

Additional information is available on Microsoft Windows Media page.
