What exactly are Flac files? As I'm trying to download an album and I can only find it in flac, which I know is not mp3...
So can I play it on itunes? Or is there anyway I can convert to mp3? And what is a flac file anyway?

flac is fully lossless. you can convert it to mp3, but you will have to use a decent audio converter.

Flac is Free losless audio codex if i'm not mistaken. It is the exact quality of the cd, and the only thing I rip or burn in. winamp can play them

Use Foobar as your media player. Uncluttered, plays everything you're likely to find, open source... what's not to love?

eta: it is only audio though.

Oh sorry, you can either do it the way Wiggy posted, or if you search google there is a plug-in for it.
