Information about M4A and FLAC file formats
|🔸 File format||M4A||FLAC|
|🔸 Full name||M4A - Audio-only MPEG-4||FLAC - Free Lossless Audio Codec|
|🔸 File extension||.m4a||.flac|
|🔸 MIME type||video/mp4||audio/x-flac|
|🔸 Developed by||International Organization for Standardization||Xiph.Org Foundation|
|🔸 Type of format||Media container||Audio|
|🔸 Description||MPEG-4 Part 14 or MP4 is a digital multimedia container format most commonly used to store video and audio. However, it can also be used to store other data such as subtitles and still images. M4A stands for MPEG 4 Audio and is a filename extension used to represent audio files.||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||Audio-only MPEG-4 files generally have a .m4a extension. This is especially true of non-protected content. M4A is often compressed using AAC encoding (lossy) but can also be in Apple Lossless format.||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.|
