Description

FLAC (free lossless audio codec) is a binary audio file format used to reduce the size of audio files without losing quality. It is basically a lossless audio compression format.

FLAC files use bit-perfect CD copies but offer half the size, so they are much smaller than CDC and WAV files. However, FLAC files are still larger than MP3 (up to 16 times larger). The file extension became popular because of its sound quality. Unlike MP3 which is a lossy format, FLAC is lossless so no part of the audio is shaved off to reduce the size. All the elements, including reverbs, transients and guitar sounds aren’t lost through compression.

How to create and how to open an FLAC file

There are two recommended ways to create a FLAC audio file. The first involves ripping from a CD while the other is downloading from a store with FLAC files. However, you can always use online audio converting platforms and downloadable converters to create FLAC versions of your MP3 files. Some applications, such as DAWs (digital audio workstations) allow users to save FLAC files.

Opening FLAC files should be effortless as most Windows and Mac players support the format. You can open FLAC audio files using VLC, Audacity, Adobe Audition CC, Roxio Creator NXT Pro, File Viewer Plus, MPlayer, aTunes, jetAudio and many more. Mobile users can also open FLAC files using VLC for mobile and other smartphone players.

Which other formats FLAC can be converted into and why

Like most audio files, FLAC can be converted to a wide variety of proprietary formats. You can also convert other file formats to FLAC. The easiest conversions include:

  1. 1. MP3
  2. 2. WAV
  3. 3. AIFF
  4. 4. ALAC

Most people convert FLAC to MP3 and vice versa but there are many conversions you can achieve, depending on what you want. The main advantage of FLAC files is sound quality. FLAC formats are lossless like WAV and CDC so they provide much better quality compared to MP3. However, they are up to 16 times bigger than MP3, so you might want to revert to MP3 for uploading and streaming.

Although FLAC files are larger than MP3, they are significantly smaller than WAV files. Users who want compressed versions of WAV and CDC can convert to FLAC which reduced the size by up to 60%. The format is also compatible with most players and DAWs. FLAC files are perfect when you don’t want to sacrifice quality of the original sound for size.

Description

OGG is a compressed audio file format or file extension used to hold audio data. It was developed by Xiph.Org Foundation and can include track and artist information and metadata.

The OGG extension was developed to replace proprietary audio formats like mp3, VQF and AAC. They are compressed to a smaller size than mp3, which means less bandwidth and storage requirements. OGG files also offer better sound quality than mp3 files of the same size. Most players, such as VLC and Windows Media Player, can open and play OGG files.

Technical details

How to create and how to open an OGG file

There are many ways to create an OGG file. You can convert WAV, WMA or MP3 to OGG, create a new OGG file, convert a playlist/folder or rip a CD/track to OGG. Simply right click on the file and select “convert to” then “OGG” on the menu that pops up. You can also use audio converter software to create OGG files from proprietary formats.

To open an OGG file, use any music and audio software like VLC, Windows Media Player, Miro, MPlayer, Adobe Audition, Audials One, Xion, etc. You can also drag OGG files into Google Chrome or open it online. GPS devices can open OGG files although Apple devices don’t support the format, so you’ll need to download an app like VLC or OPlayer.

Which other formats OGG can be converted into and why

OGG files can be converted to many other audio file formats. Simply right click on the OGG file and convert to your preferred format. You can convert OGG to any of the following formats:

  1. 1. MP3
  2. 2. WAV
  3. 3. M4A
  4. 4. AAC

Although OGG audio files are free, unpatented, and smaller than MP3, not many portable players support the format. You’ll need to convert OGG to MP3 or other formats that are supported by your device. Some programs also don’t allow saving in OGG so you might need to convert back to OGG once you are done working on the audio file.

There are many advantages to OGG. Their smaller size means you need less storage space and bandwidth when streaming. Reports have also shown that OGG files offer better sound quality than MP3 files of the same size. They are perfect for complex, high-frequency sounds and give creators and other users the ability to work with multimedia for free.
