Hi.
I have downloaded files that are in FLAC format (using torrents or other download links) and stored them directly to the hard drive of my computer.
My question is, if i upload those files from my hard drive onto another torrent site or megaupload for example, will they still be in FLAC format, or would i have to do something to them?
In short, can i dowload a file in FLAC, store it on my pc, then upload it elsewhere and it still be in FLAC?
Thanks in advance.

As long as you don't decode it from flac, it'll be the same.

if I download a Divx file and play it, will it still be a Divx file?

Not sure what decoding means (sorry, new to all this), but since i don't know what it is, chances are i have not done it.
Thank you for your reply.

No.

But you might want to check with a VBT mod to be sure.
