FLAC, also known as Free Lossless Audio Codec, is an audio coding format for lossless compression of digital audio. Since FLAC is a lossless scheme, it is perfect as an archive format for owners of CDs and other media who wish to preserve their audio collections. Unlike WAV and AIFF, FLAC codec is compressed, so it takes up much less space, typically be reduced to between 50 and 60 percent of its original size. Besides, FLAC has support for metadata tagging, album cover art, and fast seeking. When comparing with MP3, a lossy audio format, FLAC is supposed to keep the audio quality the same as originals.
