Free iMac OS FLAC to MP3 converter

From miscellus

All2MP3 app / program icon

I was given some FLAC files that I wanted to convert to MP3 and put on my iPod and my iPhone but Apple does not support FLAC format music files so I needed a utility to convert the FLAC files to MP3, and I wanted it free or open source as I only had a few tracks to convert.

What I found was All2MP3 a free utility that is written for Mac OS and only runs on Mac OS. It is beautifully simple and works quickly and efficiently on 264 different formats of audio and video files.

    1. Choose the path for the converted files
    2. Select the conversion quality
    3. Select to delete the original files if you wish

That's it!
