The specification of the stream format can be implemented by anyone without prior permission ( reserves the right to set the FLAC specification and certify compliance), and neither the FLAC format nor any of the implemented encoding or decoding methods are covered by any patent.

The reference implementation of FLAC is implemented as the libFLAC core encoder & decoder library, with the main distributable program flac being the reference implementation of the libFLAC API. This codec API is also available in C++ as libFLAC++. The reference implementation of FLAC compiles on many platforms, including most Unix (such as Solaris, BSD) and Unix-like (including Linux), Microsoft Windows, BeOS, and OS/2 operating systems. There are build-systems for autoconf/automake, MSVC, Watcom C, and Xcode. There is currently no multicore support in libFLAC, but utilities such as GNU parallel and various graphical frontends can be used to spin up multiple instances of the encoder.

On Windows and Mac libflac is used to import and export FLAC but on Linux libsndfile is used by default to import FLAC. Importing using libsndfile allows FLAC files to be imported and operated on more quickly using On-Demand Loading. To import using libflac, choose the "FLAC files" filter when using Open or Import, or set a rule in Extended Import Preferences to always use libflac whatever the import method.

"Free" means that the specification of the stream format is in the public domain (the FLAC project reserves the right to set the FLAC specification and certify compliance), and that neither the FLAC format nor any of the implemented encoding/decoding methods are covered by any patent. It also means that the sources for libFLAC and libFLAC++ are available under The New BSD license and the sources for flac and metaflac applications, and the plugins are available under the GPL.

FLAC is a Free Lossless Audio Codec. It can encode audio with a PCM bit resolution up to 32 bits per sample and sampling rates up to 640 kHz. FLAC-encoded audio is usually found either in a native container (which has the extension .flac), or in an Ogg container (when it's known as OggFLAC).

The original .flac files are not modified and the resulting .mp3s will be in the same directory. All files with extensions not matching *.flac in the working directory (.nfo, images, .sfv, etc.) are ignored.

For ease of use, add the script to your PATH. Open up a terminal, cd to the directory of FLAC files that you wish to convert, and invoke flac2mp3 (or whatever you named the script). You will see the verbose decoding/encoding process in the terminal which may take a few moments. Done! At this point, it is trivial to mv *.mp3 all your new MP3s wherever you wish.

If for some reason FFmpeg is not installed and you do not want to install it, you still need to have flac and lame installed. Here, the tagging process is more explicit using the metadata utility that comes with flac and passing the information to lame. The process duration will slightly increase since FLACs must first be decoded to WAVE and then fed into the MP3 encoder.
