I wanted to make sure that I'm not shooting myself in the foot and ask about this.
So currently I have an audio file in a .mkv container that looks like this
Audio: FLAC (framed) 48000Hz stereo 1536kbps [A: Audio (flac, 48000 Hz, stereo, s16) [default]]
ID : 2
Format : FLAC
Format/Info : Free Lossless Audio Codec
Codec ID : A_FLAC
Duration : 39mn 50s
Bit rate mode : Variable
Channel(s) : 2 channels
Sampling rate : 48.0 KHz
Bit depth : 16 bits
Title : Audio
Writing library : libFLAC 1.2.1 (UTC 2007-09-17)
And I would like to convert it to AAC, preferably without losing the quality too much.
I did find a similar question asked on this forum.
But the method that was described there is about 3 years old.
"compile your own ffmpeg for fdk_aac
follow the AAC encoding guide and use fdk_aac's -vbr option - with a setting of 3"
ffmpeg -i input.flac -c:a libfdk_aac -vbr 3 output.m4a".

So I was wondering if this will work for my situation, or if it won't work for me.
If that's all it takes then no need to answer, and thanks!
