Movavi Video Converter
The ideal way to get your media in the format you need!
Click Add Media, select the Add Audio option, and choose the audio file for which you’d like to change the format. You can also add a batch of files to perform a mass conversion. Movavi Video Converter supports a wide range of formats, so you can batch-convert FLAC to MP3 and also change MP3 files to FLAC, although it won't improve the sound quality because of the specifics of the MP3 format.
Open the Audio tab, click on the MP3 group, and select the bitrate that best suits your needs. Since you're converting from a lossless audio format, higher bitrates (like 320 kbps) will certainly retain more quality, but the output files will be larger than those with lower bitrates.
Click the Save to button to specify a folder for saving your files, then press Convert to change the format of your files from FLAC to MP3. Once the conversion is complete, the destination folder will open automatically.

One way is by using the online service form at the top of this page. Another option is to download a free FLAC-to-MP3 converter like VLC or Free Video Converter from Movavi. Please note that conversion via VLC can be tricky as the program features lots of menus and dialog boxes that one has to click through before converting media files. Also, in the case of Free Video Converter, the conversion speed can be a bit low as only free codecs are included in the application.
FLAC is one of the most popular lossless formats. Although FLAC files are compressed, they have the same quality as the original source audio. The audio files of lossy formats like MP3 have slightly worse sound quality than those of lossless formats. So, yes, if you convert your files with an audio converter from FLAC to MP3, there can be certain quality loss issues. However, the difference may be almost undetectable if the lossy file has a high bitrate.
The answer depends on what you want to do with your files. The FLAC format offers better sound quality – so, if this is your top priority, you might want to consider storing your audio files in FLAC. However, FLAC files can be six times larger than MP3s, making MP3 a better alternative that’s still very popular among those who value disk space over quality.
