    #3839976 - 02/27/05 03:45 AM (12 years, 9 months ago)

Well I just downloaded Jimi Hendrix - Band of Gypsys but all of the songs arnt in Mp3 format or a music format that im familiar with...
They all end with .Flac Would somebody mind telling me what the hell this file type is? Im not much of a computer expert so I dont know these kind of things.

No problem man. I was pretty confused when I first encountered these files myself.

Flac is lossless as in cd quality. I wish I could find more flac files, some mp3 just sound so shitty.

Only problem is flac files are usually pretty big.

Lossless is where its at :thumbup:

I used flac for a while, but had a lot of problems with the frontend. I still use shorten files. I live in the stone age.

I prefer monkey's audio over FLAC...i've been using it for years...it's noticeably faster, and marginally better compression. and i like how it says "ape" at the end of the files..

.ape rules
I love .flac

if I could have all lossless, that would great.
but until then, it's .ogg and lame aps.

use foobar (see sig)
to convert to .ogg or .mp3
