MP3 Audio Format MP3 Converter
MP3 is the most common format for storing and playing digital music. It’s short for ‘MPEG-1 Audio Layer 3’, and it was developed in the early 1990s as a way of compressing audio to create smaller files that could be easily shared and stored without losing too much sound quality.
MP3 is a universal format maintained by the International Office for Standardization (ISO). MP3 tracks will play on almost any device and with most media players, including Windows Media Player and Apple Music. Digital music took off in the 1990s and 2000s, and many users used media players to ‘rip’ CDs, or download tracks from sites like Napster, turning MP3 into the most common audio format. Because MP3 uses ‘lossy’ compression that can’t be reversed, some music listeners prefer to use other formats such as FLAC, even if the file sizes are bigger.
FLAC Audio Format FLAC Converter
The FLAC file type is an open-source format for audio. The format uses lossless compression, and it’s usually used for playing and storing high-quality digital music. The name FLAC stands for Free Lossless Audio Codec, and the format was released in the early 2000s by the Xiph.Org foundation as an alternative to formats like MP3. FLAC significantly reduces the size of an audio file, while delivering higher sound quality than some other formats. Many music lovers prefer to store and play their digital music in FLAC format.
The main drawback of FLAC as a digital music format is that it’s not universally supported, so you usually need to install extra software on your device in order to play the files. Most open-source media players, including VLC Media Player, MPlayer and Audacity, can play FLAC audio tracks.
