Question Quick question about FLAC.

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.

Re: Quick question about FLAC.

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

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.
Try schmoe, he's super-duper friendly.
