What is FLAC file?

There are lots of Audio Codec available on the internet, but FLAC stands out amongst them in quality. They are almost like the MP3, an Audio Codec, but the difference is that, this is a compressed format but still it does not lose any of the qualities of the original audio. You can only open them on devices or applications that will support the FLAC system but with a better compression performance and better quality of audio, this is what you should be looking for. This is truly one of the widely used and fastest codec amongst them all and you can surely trust the quality to use them.

What else may cause problems?

There can be more reasons which determine that you are not able to open the FLAC file (apart from the lack of the proper application installed).

First - the FLAC file may be incorrectly associated with the application installed to support it. In this case, you need to change this association by yourself. To do this, right-click on the FLAC file that you want to edit, click "Open with" and then select the program from the list that you have installed. After this operation, the problems with opening the FLAC file should be solved.

Second - the file you want to open can simply be damaged. Then, the best solution is to find a new version of given file, or download it again from the same source as before (maybe for some reason in the previous session the download of the FLAC file has not been completed and it cannot be opened properly).
