What is .mp3 file?
The MP3 file extension is used for MPEG-1 Layer III Audio Streams, audio files commonly referred as MP3s. This standard has evolved from early MPEG (The Moving Picture Experts Group) work. It is an audio compression technology that is part of the MPEG-1 and MPEG-2 specifications.
MP3 lossy audio compression algorithm was developed by Karlheinz Brandenburg on German Fraunhofer Institute and introduced it in 1991. MP3 uses perceptual audio coding to compress CD-quality sound with almost the same fidelity. It is the most used audio file format to store music supported by various software and hardware multimedia players as well as mobile phones, smart phones, tablets, cd players, djs decks etc.
