Eugene, OR -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/02/2014 -- SDR [Oregon's own Software Development Resource] announces upcoming new software converter that handles any Flac to MP3 format. Following the company's standing tradition of producing free software, this new release is also obtainable with no charges.
MP3 is the current de facto standard in most audio digital playback players for either online or online platforms.
FLAC on the other hand is not entirely a file extension format but an audio coding format or codec for lossless compression of digital audio which mirrors its acronym definition “Free Lossless Audio Codec.” It was developed by Josh Coalson, founder of XIPH.org and in 2003 has since been marketed under that banner. The organization was also known for other equally ubiquitous and free codecs such as Theora and Speex.
Codecs are just technical names for compression and decompression [just for easier usage in daily terms]. Therein lies its main function: to encode or decode video files. Most local media players [those installed in a certain computer operating system] can play a lot of file types even without the user's knowledge and effort.
But it's not the case for all players and in those instances, where players can't open a file type, the player will automatically prompt them to get a codec for this or that to enable it to open a certain file type.
But for files with this format [FLAC] and given that it's not really a file format, it can still be played with the use of a converter. That's where Software Development Resource's free FLAC to MP3 converter does.
Like most of their other free software, it's easy to use even for beginners so there's really no learning curve to deal with and once converted, the files can easily play with almost any other players due to the mp3 format's wide support.
