NAME
       FLAC - Free Lossless Audio Codec

DESCRIPTION
       FLAC  an  audio format similar to MP3, but lossless, meaning that audio
       is compressed in FLAC without any loss in quality. This is  similar  to
       how  Zip  works,  except with FLAC you will get much better compression
       because it is designed specifically for audio, and you  can  play  back
       compressed  FLAC  files  in your favorite player just like you would an
       MP3 file.

       FLAC supports tagging, cover art, and  fast  seeking.  FLAC  is  freely
       available  and  supported on most operating systems, including Windows,
       Linux, *BSD, Solaris, and OS X.
