TOP-TECH: MP3
     
 
Error processing SSI file

MP3 is a method for squeezing your favourite song into the smallest space possible.

The name is an abbreviation of MPEG3, which stands for Moving Picture Experts Group audio layer 3.

MP3 files take up less space than other sound files on a computer disk or in the (limited) memory of your MP3 player. You can also download them much faster over the Internet (but don't forget about copyright restrictions!).
