Ripping to FLAC for the first time today. According to Foobar2000, the bitrates are different from the same tracks on CD. Some drop from 1411 to 630 kbps. As I said I'm new. Is this a problem? Why wouldn't the Bitrate be the same? So does that mean these files aren't CD quality? It's supposed ti be lossless, right? Thanks for bearing with my noob-iness. Also, I followed this guide, so my settings are similar to what's in the video. EDIT: Snooped around a bit. Apparently FLAC files are supposed to have lower Bitrates? My head hurts, I was living in a simple world where higher was better. So I'm still a tad confused.
