I have a bunch of flac files I have to convert to lossless .wma because a game I have requires I use it.

I was looking at avconv, and tried avconv -i song.flac output.wma, however I believe this made a lossy output, as its encoder was Lavc57.25.0 libmp3lame. I also tried ffmpeg but that didn't do anything.

Any suggestions on how do accomplish this? Thank you.

    I believe that at the moment there is no support under Linux for encoding to WMA Lossless. Which game is it? – andrew.46 Mar 4 '20 at 1:46
  • @andrew.46 GTA V PC. It doesn't support flacs, and wav is supported but without metadata (which I want my metadata :-) ) Somebody said lossless wma works so I wanted to give it a try. The only Windows tool I could find required payment for converting songs longer than 2min (even though it was marked as 'freeware') – leetbacoon Mar 7 '20 at 6:55

    This post suggests a few more formats: reddit.com/r/GrandTheftAutoV_PC/comments/32wn99/… so perhaps mp3 might be worth a shot? – andrew.46 Mar 7 '20 at 22:48
