What is an MP3? "MP3" refers to files of sound or music recordings stored in the MP3 format on computers. This file type has become the standard file format for the compression of audio because MP3s significantly compress songs and files, making them the perfect candidate for distribution via downloads. Files can be accessed on your computer with applications such as Windows Media Player or Apple iTunes or can be played on MP3 players. More questions about this file format?
