FLAC stands for Free Lossless Audio Codec, an audio format that keeps the quality of original music while reducing file size. Most audio formats, on the other hand, provide a trade-off between music quality and file size. 

But compared with MP3, the most commonly used format, the FLAC format is only available on limited devices. So if you wish to play it on more devices or players, you'll need to convert FLAC to MP3. And below are the tips to achieve your goal. 

3 Easy Ways to Convert FLAC to MP3
