Information about APE and FLAC file formats

Full name Monkeys Audio FLAC - Free Lossless Audio Codec
File extension .ape .flac
MIME type audio/ape audio/x-flac
Developed by Monkeys Audio Xiph.Org Foundation
Type of format Music File Audio
Description The APE format is a popular audio format that uses lossless compression and a very effective compression algorithm. Many prefer to use Monkey Audio's main competitor, FLAC, which offers more features and hardware support. Most modern media players do not support the APE format, and many users look to convert into more freely available formats such as MP3 and FLAC. FLAC (Free Lossless Audio Codec) is an audio coding format for lossless compression of digital audio and is also the name of the reference codec implementation. Digital audio compressed by FLAC's algorithm can typically be reduced to 50-60% of its original size and decompress to an identical copy of the original audio data.
Technical details Monkey's Audio does not discard data during the process of encoding the file. Instead, APE adopts file compression to reduce file transfer time, bandwidth, and storage with no loss in quality, with the ape file sounding the same as the original digital recording (for example, CD). In addition, APE offers better compression rates than FLAC and has multithreading/multicore support inbuilt. The technical strengths of FLAC compared to other lossless formats lie in its ability to be streamed and decoded quickly, independent of compression level. Compared to compressed audio formats, FFmpeg's FLAC implementation was noted to have the fastest and most efficient embedded decoder of any modern lossless audio format.
