Convert MPEG-4 compressed audio to Audio files encoded by Flac - free lossless audio codec.

We have found 17 software records in our database eligible for .m4a to .flac file format conversion.

The question whether m4a to flac conversion is useful depends on the origin of the .m4a. If it's just standard MPEG-4 with lossy audio track then although doable, won't improve the quality.

Another possibility is actually if the .m4a files come from Apple/Mac platform and feature ALAC lossless audio track, which is what users looking for alac to flac conversion actually want. In which case you have to choose tools that support both of these lossless format, particularly ones that incorporate the open source library libavcodec

The tables with software actions are a good pointer for what a certain program does with various file types and often may give users a good hint how to perform certain file conversion, for example the above-mentioned m4a to flac. However, it is not perfect and sometimes can show results which are not really usable because of how certain programs work with files and the possible conversion is thus actually not possible at all.

M4A

Files with m4a extension are audio files stored in MPEG-4 (MP4) container and use AAC (Advanced Audio Coding), or Apple Lossless (ALAC) audio compression. M4A is very popular on Mac computers, because it is default audio format used by iTunes. M4A is also default audio format for Apple portable devices (iPod, iPhone, iPad).

FLAC

Files with flac extension are used for audio files compressed with the FLAC, aka Free Lossless Audio Codec. FLAC files do not lose any quality with their compression as MP3 do, but they are generally larger. Most modern media players support playback of FLAC files.
