Downloading music from the web has become one of the most common activities among the Internet users. There are large number of websites which are available and allow the users to download songs and other music files. But, you may have experienced that when you download songs or any other music file from the Internet, sometimes the file formats in which that songs is given or the format in which you have downloaded it is the one that your default audio player, mobile phone or mp3 player does not support. This file format maybe any of these such as Flac, Ogg or Ape file, or some other audio files that are not that commonly supported. In such scenarios you need a converter through which you may convert the file to a format which your audio player supports.
Although there are number of audio converters available over the web, among which many of them have been discussed on our website too. But, the one which we are going to discuss today is much more advanced and may prove to be lot useful than its predecessors.
FlicFlac is basically a small-sized, easy to use, freeware freely available and a portable audio converter which has been developed especially for Windows-based users. It supports several popular music formats including mp3, wav, ape, flac and ogg, and allows its users to convert the file from any of the format to any of the desired file format which it supports.
This converter can be easily downloaded from the link given below. After installing and running it in your system, you may observe that how simple this converter is. In order to convert any of your files, all you need to do is to drag and drop them into the drop area provided on the application window which has been shown in the snapshot or you may even click on the area to open a file browser. As you may observe, that Flac is the audio format which is selected by default for output file. So, in order to convert it to some other format you need to select that one from the options given by the application. Once you click on the new format, the application will detect it as the default output format for the conversion from the next time.
In order to make some changes in the settings, you may observe that there is a specific button for this which allows you to make changes to the audio quality of the output or to simply join/integrate the audio converter into the shell to make it accessible in Windows Explorer also, which may be desired by many users. This latter feature allows the user to convert audio files right from within the file manager itself, thus making the process lot easier.
Overall we can say that although, FlicFlac is definitely not the most complete audio converter but still not all users need a program that supports all known audio files or offers editing options and that is why we may say that for a casual user it is a nice little utility. Its portability and ease of use, makes it a more powerful tool. So just download it and give it a try.
