FLAC to RA: Convert Audio from FLAC(Free Lossless Audio Codec) to RA(RealAudio) with River Past Audio Converter, FLAC2RA converter, conversion
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.
RealAudio was developed
by RealNetworks and supports FM-stereo-quality
sound. To hear a Web page that includes a RealAudio sound file, you need a RealAudio
player or plug-in, a program that is freely available from a number of places.
