Information about SHN and FLAC file formats

Full name Shorten FLAC - Free Lossless Audio Codec
File extension .shn .flac
MIME type audio/x-flac
Developed by Shorten Xiph.Org Foundation
Type of format Audio Audio
Description Shorten (SHN) is a file format used for compressing audio data. It is a form of data compression of files and is used to losslessly compress CD-quality audio files (44.1 kHz 16-bit stereo PCM). Shorten is no longer developed, and other lossless audio codecs such as FLAC, Monkey's Audio(APE), TTA, and WavPack (WV) have become more popular. However, some people still use Shorten because there are legally traded concert recordings in circulation that are encoded as Shorten files. Shorten files use the .shn file extension. 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 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.
