An audio file with a .wv filename extension may be unfamiliar to many people, it actually stands for WavPack audio file, which is a free and open-source lossless audio compression format. Thanks to the unique hybrid compression mode, it creates a relatively small, high-quality lossy WV file that can be used all by itself, and a "correction" WVC file that (when combined with the lossy file) provides full lossless restoration. In a nutshell, WV files can be used as the hybrid lossless and lossy formats.
Sounds great? Unfortunately, the fatal drawback is, WV files cannot be recognized and decoded in most media players and devices. By contrast, FLAC is not only an open-source lossless audio codec as well, but also well-known to almost everyone and has wide software and hardware supports. Thus, if you have a multitude of .wv files saved on your computer, the following guide will demonstrate the detailed steps to convert WavPack audio files to FLAC more efficiently.
