    FLAC vs WAV vs WMA lossless

    I have a FLAC file that I converted to WAV. Since they are both lossless, why is the WAV file so much bigger than the FLAC file? And why is the WAV file so much bigger than the same file as a WMA file?

    ALAC Audio Ripper

    I like to purchase physical CDs so that I can rip the files at a lossless format that does not have imbedded DRM - previously, it was uber easy to do this: pop the disk in itunes, rip as ALAC, call it a day. Now, it seems that disks are not recognized in itunes because the audio files are hidden...

    Does rendering a lossless file using the same lossless codec decrease quality?

I render my videos...

    MP3 "lossy" compression algorithm doubt

    Hi everyone, I just had a doubt about the .mp3 compression method. I know that when you compress a raw sound file, like a .wav, with the mp3 algorithm, some chunks of data are discarded. (It may sound kinda stupid), i.e when you convert an mp3 file to a wav file, it will not have the same...

    Lossless video converter?

    Hi everyone. I have been on a frantic hunt for a 100% lossless video converter. Some have said that it is impossible to get one that is fully lossless, but why can they not simply do this: take one frame from source video, duplicate it pixel by pixel onto converted video, and repeat? Is there a...

    APE format questions

    What is the best way to play APE files on a portable players such as ZUNE? If I convert APE to MP3, there will be some quality loss, if I set the bit rate to be very high, will the MP3 file be lossless too? Also are there any software to convert APE to WMV lossless?

    Say Hello to Apple's new iPods

    Using an external headphone with the nano makes a large difference. I use a Ray Samuels Hornet with a set of Grados and you can easily tell the difference between a Apple lossless and 256K AAC or 128K AAC files.
