Some facts about FLAC format

    FLAC file extension stands for a Free Lossless Audio Codec. This is an open source audio compression format that can compress an audio file twice down its size.
  • Despite a high compression rate, this codec is lossless, meaning no sound quality is lost, which makes this format stand out compared to MP3 or WMA.
  • Mac OS works with Adobe PDF (Portable Document Format) files well.
  • A FLAC Fingerprint file can be generated along with the FLAC file itself. The fingerprint file contains the filename and checksum info for a FLAC file. Such files will usually have the extension ".ffp" or ".ffp.txt".
