FLAC stands for Free Lossless Audio Codec. Grossly oversimplified, FLAC is
similar to MP3, but lossless.  The FLAC project consists of:

* Input plugins for various music players (Winamp, XMMS, and more in the
This package contains the command-line tools flac (used for encoding and
decoding FLACs) and metaflac (used for manipulating FLAC metadata.)
