What is MP3?
format, short for MPEG-1 Audio Layer 3, a revolutionary
digital audio format, is developed by Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft and
Thompson Multimedia in the late 1980s and brought to the mainstream
through the Internet in 1997. It is a common audio format for consumer
audio storage, as well as a standard encoding for the transfer and
playback of music on digital audio players. MP3
is a near-CD quality file format for sound files and is very popular
for music on the web. As an audio-specific format, MP3 becomes more
popular when people use it to swap music online because of its powerful
of MP3 comes from its practical uses. Music tracks in WAV format
are extremely large in file size, averaging around 50MB
in size. Since it is so large, it is not practical to send WAV files
through email or offer them for download on the Internet. MP3, however,
compresses WAV audio on average of 10 to 12 times
smaller than the original size. The result is audio tracks around
3 to 4 MB in size, perfect for downloading and
sending through the Internet. Thus, custom MP3 format CDs can be
created with 10 to 12 times the amount of tracks of a normal
12-15 track audio CD, producing CDs with over
100 tracks easily. The format is also popular for
turning your PC into a jukebox of hundreds or thousands of songs
or loading them into a portable mp3 player and taking your music
collection wherever you want.
MP3 is a non-proprietary format that can be played with a
whole host of different players. For users who have large music
collections, it is a good choice to backup and enjoy.
