Re: itunes

iTunes does not support flac files. I suggest using foobar2000 instead, its free, lightweight and has many great functions. If you have VLC you can also use that to play lossless files.

If you're trying to put files you downloaded here on an apple product such as iphone or ipod, you won't be able to without converting/re-encoding to a different format.

Re: itunes

xAct will convert the files to be playable in iTunes but get VLC to play them as FLACs.
footer works nicely as well.

Re: itunes

https://www.dbpoweramp.com/ This is a really good tool as well. The first 30 days are free. After you use it the one time 30$ fee is well worth it.
