Bitrate question

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have Media Monkey and just noticed something I had not noticed before.

I have three versions of Queensryche's Empire album ripped on my PC, one in FLAC, one MP3 in 320 BPS, and one in WMA. The WMA files all show a slightly higher bitrate than the FLAC files. Why is this? Is it because of some tagging information with WMA that FLAC does not have?

Thanks!

I assume you are talking about WMA Lossless, if such is the case, you should know that compression algorithms differ depending on the codec, and some are simply more efficient than others. This would explain the size difference.
