AWS Elemental MediaConvert now Ingests FLAC and Animated GIF Inputs

Today, AWS announces the general availability of FLAC audio and animated GIF video input sources for AWS Elemental MediaConvert. These new input formats are compatible with all MediaConvert outputs. For example, you can convert lossless FLAC files into compressed audio formats like AAC, MP3, and Ogg Vorbis, or use FLAC files as sidecar audio sources to be joined with video files. Animated GIF inputs can be converted into higher-efficiency video streaming codecs like AVC and HEVC and distributed as standalone MP4 files or adaptive-bitrate streaming packages such as HLS or DASH.
