How to Convert FLAC to MP3 (Mac & Windows)
While FLAC files are only supported on a handful of multimedia players and audio devices, MP3 audio format could be played on most of them. That’s why many users are seeking methods to convert FLAC files to MP3 format.
There are many ways to change the audio format of files. But here we’ve chosen a method which could be used easily without software installation or subscribing to a service.
Follow these easy steps to easily convert FLAC files to the MP3 format in both Windows and Mac systems:
Step 1) Open the online converter website in your internet browser – users could use a web-based and free converter made by Wondershare which lets them do lots of different format conversions without having to install any software on the computer or mobile phone.
The website for this conversion is Online UniConverter. And that’s one of the most simplest and quickest ways to convert FLAC file format to MP3.
So again, using this method, no software download and installation, or subscription is needed. All you need to do is check out the website and do all the necessary easy actions from the page mentioned above.
Step 2) Files selection – when you check out the webpage for the online converter, you have two ways to select the FLAC files.
The first one is to click the big button with plus sign on it and select the files through the window opened after that.
The second way is to drag and drop the files from your computer or other local storage on to the special area on the website. This makes them ready to be uploaded to the site.
Step 3) Output format selection and conversion – this is the step that actual conversion is taken place. When your files are fully uploaded and ready to be converted, you could select the format among the different file types provided by the converter. These include MP3, M4A, WMA, WAV and AAC.
After that, clicking on the “Convert” button starts the process. There is a checkbox below this button that checking it would allow the website to notify you when the process is completed.
This is especially good when dealing with large files which could take a while to be ready in the new MP3 or other audio formats.
Step 4) Download the output MP3 file – when the conversion is finished, you’ll be notified – if the related checkbox has been selected in the previous step – and you could download the converted audio file in the MP3 format.
Now, you could easily download and save the file in your computer. So finally, get relaxed because your audio file is in a more popular format which could be played in most audio and video players available on different systems and devices.
