Software update: FLAC 1.4.1

Spread the love

Version 1.4.1 of the Free Lossless Audio Codec, or FLAC, has been released. This sound file format stores data without losing information, as is the case with MP3, Ogg Vorbis and Opus, for example. FLAC is available for several operating systems and usually requires an external program to act as a user interface. In Windows, for example, you can do this with ExactAudioCopy and foobar2000. The changelog for this release shows the following changes and improvements:
