RA Audio Format

RA Converter

RealAudio files use the RA file extension. The format was developed by RealNetworks, and it was launched in 1995. RealAudio files can contain audio data or can reference an online audio file that can be streamed and played while it’s still downloading. When old dialup modems were used, the files could also be streamed over these, and because of this feature, RA used to be the main format for the BBC websites and many internet radio stations. However, the RA format has now declined in popularity in favour of other audio formats that are more efficient.

RA files will not play on all devices or with all music players. However, if you have an RA file you want to listen to, you can still download the free RealPlayer as either a standalone software application or as a browser plugin. You can also play RA files with MPlayer or VLC Media Player.

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.
