Does anybody know a good (preferably open-source, or at least free) flac to mp3 converter?
I was trying ease audio converter, but it quit working. Any other suggestions?
Why would you want to move from lossless audio compression to lossy compression? Do you have a portable player that doesn't support FLAC or something?
actually I've never had trouble making iTunes convert my files. If you set your default preference to .mp3 files and attempt to import it, then it will ask if you want to convert it. Though I have never come across a flac file =\ never even heard of that. Gotta go google that now haha.
^Some people actually don't use itunes...
i'm a fan of JetAudio so i use it for most type of convertings, i have used this software for converting FLAC to MP3 the result is not the best but the simplicity of converting process is one of important things so i recommend you to test it, also it is free !
Try application created by Xilisoft (I believe it is named Xilisoft Video Converter or likely) if you can spend few dollars on it. Works perfect and uses features of your graphics card to speed up conversion. The queality is best that 320kbps MP3 can have.
If you want some free application, try Format Factory, I always recommend it to my friends and they never complain so it is pretty easy in use and has enough functionalities for a regular user - including FLAC -> MP3 conversion.
