How to convert WAV to FLAC online

As the FLAC (Free Lossless Audio Codec) audio format gains popularity, many music lovers are looking for ways to convert their wav-formatted music archive to Flac format. In this article, we will tell you how to convert your wav files to flac without downloading any program or application to your device.

What is the difference between Flac and Wav files?

Developed by Microsoft and IBM, Waveform Audio File format (Wav or Wave) is one of the oldest audio formats. A wav file contains uncompressed audio data and takes up a lot of disk space. Flac files, on the other hand, contain losslessly compressed audio data and take up less disk space without sacrificing music quality.

Another difference between flac and wav files is that standard metadata such as song title, album name, album art can be stored in Flac files. Although technically metadata can also be added to wav files, it is not widely used because many players cannot recognize it.

For all these reasons, converting your wav music library to flac format can be a good idea to save disk space while listening to your music without any loss in quality.
