Please be aware that much of the software linked to or mentioned on this forum is niche and therefore infrequently downloaded. Lots of anti-virus scanners and so-called malware detectors like to flag infrequently downloaded software as bad until it is either downloaded enough times, or its developer actually bothers with getting each individual release allow listed by every single AV vendor. You can do many people a great favor when encountering such a "problem" example by submitting them to your AV vendor for examination. For almost everything on this forum, it is a false positive.

Apple Lossless

I am planning on archiving all my music onto my computer as Apple Lossless files because I mainly use iTunes and iPods only. I was doing this so that if a new encoder or lossy file compression comes along that is superior I can just have it encoded from the lossless files instead of putting all the CD's in one at a time and re-tagging/getting album art. Am I correct in believing that if I convert an Apple Lossless file to say, a 192 VBR AAC file I would get the same result as though I converted the file right from the CD? I hope my question is comprehendable. Thanks!

You are correct, converting to lossy from lossless is the same as ripping to lossy from CD. Lossless = CD.

EDIT: Why is this in Speech Codecs?
