The fla file extension is primarily used by Adobe Flash for its project files, but sometimes it can be also used for FLAC audio files.

Open-source audio format that uses lossless audio compression, meaning it does not remove any of the original audio data - compresses audio with no loss in quality.

FLAC stands for Free Lossless Audio Codec. Grossly oversimplified, FLAC is similar to MP3, but lossless, meaning that audio is compressed in FLAC without any loss in quality. This is similar to how Zip works, except with FLAC you will get much better compression because it is designed specifically for audio, and you can play back compressed FLAC files in your favorite player (or your car or home stereo, see supported devices) just like you would an MP3 file.

See: file extension flac for more information.
