:: Instructions for decoding FLAC files using Frontah ::
(for Windows users)


Frontah is a nice Windows software, especially designed for audio encoding/decoding.
It's easy to use and totally free. No installation required.


First off: What is FLAC?

FLAC stands for Free Lossless Audio Codec, an audio format similar to MP3, but lossless, meaning that audio is compressed in FLAC without any loss in quality. In short, FLAC is a sort of zipped WAV but with a little difference: while ZIP may compress a CD-quality audio file by 10–20%, FLAC achieves compression rates of 30–50% for most music, with significantly greater compression. If you are interested in true high quality, FLAC is possibly the best way to share music online!


How can I listen to FLAC files?

1. Download and extract Frontah092b.zip (1.1 mb) into a folder named "Frontah"

2. Once you've extracted the .zip archive, go to the "Frontah" folder and click on the "Frontah.exe" icon

3. Now choose the format you prefer below and follow the instructions on screen

WAV (to make a CD Audio) or Mp3 (for your Mp3 player)


Note: the .zip file contains both FLAC and MP3 (LAME) encoders/decoders
