How to Convert a FLAC to a WAV in WinAmp


Winamp includes a Format Converter tool that converts files to and from a variety of different sound formats. WAV files are compatible with more software and hardware devices than FLAC files are, but FLAC files are compressed and therefore substantially smaller than WAV files. Convert your FLAC files to WAV files using Winamp's Format Converter.

  • Open Winamp by clicking "Start > All Programs > Winamp > Winamp."

  • Add your FLAC files to the Winamp media library if they are not already in it. Click the "File" menu in the Winamp window, then click "Add Media To Library." Select the folder the FLAC files are in by clicking it in the directory window, then click "Add."

  • Select your FLAC files. Find a FLAC file in the Winamp media library window, then click on it. Select multiple FLAC files by pressing and holding the "Ctrl" key as you click them.

  • Open Winamp's Format Converter. Right-click your selected FLAC file or files, click "Send To" and click "Format Converter."

  • Configure the destination of the WAV files. Use the same file name and directory location as your FLAC files by clicking the "Use Old File Name and Path" check box. Choose a different output folder by clicking "Browse," navigating to a different folder in the "Choose Where to Save Converted Files" dialog box and clicking "OK."

  • Convert the FLAC files to WAV files by clicking the "Encoding Format" box, clicking "WAV Encoder" and clicking "OK."

  • Dismiss the Format Converter window by clicking "Done" after the conversion process completes.
