so i downloaded the new Shearwater album, and when i bought it I was like hey pay the $2 more to the get better quality FLAC instead of the mp3. Now my problem is that the only player it will work on is my VLC Media Player, and i cant get it to work on my my zune player, therefore i cant put it on the zune. so i tried to use some converter on my comp to see if that would work, but it wont convert them. So does anybody else know how to fix this, I payed $10 and would like to listen to it.

therer are plenty of flac converters on google.

Flacs are overrated anyways since the file size is ginormously huge.

you made a mistake... flac files are huge and tbh i dont hear much quality difference between flac and high bitrate mp3s

After listening to Leo Laporte argue about this, I've concluded (Along with him) that anything higher than 256 kpbs mp3 is overkill on 99% of headphones.

WTF does Leo Laporte know he thinks mp3s sound better than Vinyl. he said that people that listen to finally are stuck in the past and just have it in there head that is sounds better. Vinyl is Superior.

No ****, it's a lossless format, not lossy. Large sizes are a given. Find a flac converter that converts to "wma lossless", that way you don't lose the quality you paid $2 more for.

MP3 is not lossless. Flac is lossless and highly compressed. Buy a decent pair of SHUREs and you can tell the difference.

Flac is a non-loss state.

Its like an image almost.

There's no difference in quality, apart from hardly any players play flac, and most play mp3.

Nothing's wrong with the Zune, you get entry to the Zune bar!

As for converters, like everyone says, just search google and you'll find a ton.

And yes, there is a big difference between flac and mp3 if you've got a decent set of speakers/headphones.

That's when you know you found somebody special. When you can just shut the f*ck up for a minute, and comfortably share silence.

No one said mp3 was lossless...
