    Identifying M4A Lossless files and converting to FLAC

    Hi,

    I'm in the process of moving my music to open source codecs and need to convert a big bunch of Apple Lossless files to FLAC. The problem is that the file extension of AA files (.M4A) isn't a good identifier since the lossy AAC codec uses the same extension (and obviously, I dont want to convert these to FLAC). Does anyone know of any batch that could identify the lossless files from a group of M4A files. Could dbpoweramp do this? Is there another way?

    Thx.

    Use Batch Converter, select the folder, click the List button then right click on the columns and add 'Encoder' which is found under Extended Proporties, then sort on this column.

    Will this app convert the other direction? From Flac to M4A lossless?
