I like downloading concerts off fan sites. The problem is most of them come in "lossless" formats which are .flac or .shn files and are usually 30-40mb each song. Needless to say these are of no use to me and my ipod. I find these programs online that will convert from .flac to .mp3 but all of them are 30 day trials before having to pay to keep using it. Are there any programs out there that are totally free and unrestricted? Now maybe I'm just low maintenance or have cheap speakers, but I don't see how .flac can sound so much better then .mp3 does. I convert them to 192 bitrate and they sound as good or better then cd quality on my computer speakers. I used dnpconverter, but as I said, I don't want to pay for it. I shouldn't have to pay to convert files I own on my own computer to use on my own ipod.
