Confirmed: Windows 10 will have native FLAC support



In a tweet from Microsoft’s Gabriel Aul, Microsoft is throwing out spoilers again.  This time they showed a screenshot showcasing Windows Media Player in Windows 10 playing music with the FLAC audio format.

Keen eyed will notice something cool about this pic. Something to look forward to in the new year!







Microsoft also recently revealed that the new operating system, Windows 10, will also come with native support for MKV and High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC).

“FLAC stands for Free Lossless Audio Codec, an audio format similar to MP3, but lossless, meaning that audio is compressed in FLAC without any loss in quality. This is similar to how Zip works, except with FLAC you will get much better compression because it is designed specifically for audio, and you can play back compressed FLAC files in your favorite player just like you would an MP3 file,” the FLAC website states.
