    Apple AAC to FLAC FREE lossless conversion --


    Hi folks

    If you have either a Linux system or a Windows system with BASH installed on it then the job is simply done with the following script.

    for f in *.m4a; do ffmpeg -i "$f" -c:a flac "${f%.m4a}.flac"; done

    For Ubuntu users - (physical or VM's) you might get a message saying ffmpeg is deprecated --that's not actually true --just download the current version.

    Some music apps on phones won't always play m4a files but they all will generally play FLAC - and with decent capacity micro sdhc cards and a proper set of headphones there's no reason to have horribly compressed mp3 music -- I'd recommend if you must use mp3 stick to 320 kbs or at the very least 256 kbs.

    The DACS in most decent smart phones are perfectly good to give a good rendering of uncompressed music -- and decent headphones such as BOSE / Sennheiser etc even on blue tooth will be more than satisfactory.

    BTW if you can still find a copy of Winamp on Android it will actually play mp4a (always assuming the smartphones hardware can handle it).

    I'm still using good old winamp pro on my Windows system --still works even on Windows 10 !!.

    Cheers

  2. Xpress Music Series & FLAC Support?

    FLAC is the most efficient lossless format. And it's completely free!

    FLAC files sound much better than any lossy files, including AAC..





    I beg to differ .

    But if Nokia put all the obscure formats in to a phone it would be the size of a brick .

    BTW, sony ericsson already announced an out of the box FLAC supporting phone - the Zylo.



    Nokia, take music seriously, please add FLAC support via firmware update for all your music phones!
