FLAC is a musical file format that offers bit-perfect copies of CDs at half the size, and is compatible with many phones (including the iPhone). It is basically a Blu-ray disc encoded as 24-bit/96kHzor 24-bit/192kHz audio recording in three lossless formats: PCM, , and DTS-HD Master. Want to listen the audio of the Blu-Ray movies on your portable players from Mac? You can extract the audio from the Blu-Ray disc, and convert Blu-Ray to lossless FLAC for playback using VLC on Mac.

Part I: How to Free Converting Blu-ray HD audio to FLAC
As I mentioned in my first look at ripping Blu-rays, converting uncompressed PCM and lossless Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio to FLAC for use in XBMC carries a number of benefits.
* It's also lossless, so no quality difference.
* FLAC is an open, well-documented format and so you're not reliant on reverse-engineered implementations.
* XBMC can decode FLAC to PCM and output it over HDMI, whereas it currently can't for DTS-HD.Hard drive space savings can be significant, especially for PCM soundtracks.
There's little penalty in terms of the time taken to rip the disc either, as it's unlikely that your BD drive can copy data from the disc fast enough for the conversion process to become a bottleneck.What you need: This process still uses MakeMKV, with the feature enabled in by checking the advanced options box in the settings. TrueHD decoding is built in, but you'll need to find a separate DTS module and point MakeMKV to that. All you then need to do it choose the 'FLAC' preset when ripping a disc. Otherwise the process is identical.
